Remember that old t-shirt I cut up in last week’s DIY post? Instead of throwing away the remnants of the shirt, I decided to make something out of it. This is a super easy way to make a cute infinity scarf out of an old t shirt.
Step One: Choose an old shirt that you don’t want anymore. It can be any size, although the bigger the shirt, the bigger the scarf.
Step Two: Draw a line from one side of the shirt to the other, directly under the armpits. You can use a ruler to measure it out but I generally just eyeball it. You won’t be able to tell once the scarf is finished.
Step Three: Cut along the line with fabric scissors. Be careful, but don’t worry if you aren’t perfectly straight. This won’t show when you’re wearing the scarf.
Step Four: Take the bottom half (which is now a tube) and shape it with your hands into an infinity scarf. Boom, done. Bonus points for finishing off the raw edge but it’s not necessary.
I love wearing light, cotton scarves in the summer and t-shirts are the perfect weight to make them out of.
