Today we are going to show you how to do another no sew T Shirt project. This one is super fun because you can do a lot of different things with it.
Let it hang long, tie it as in the picture, scoop to the side and add a different color fabric flower, or several, and more! Let your imagination run with this scarf.
XXL or larger T Shirt
First thing we are going to start with is a T Shirt that is a XXL or larger. This gives us plenty of room for the circles we need to draw on it. You can get these from Hobby Lobby for less than $6, or even better, Goodwill, or your own closet!
Next, take your scissors and cut straight across from directly under the arms. You also want to cut the bottom seam portion off as well. Save that bottom piece, you will need a portion of that later.
Next, cut up the sides of the shirt so that you now have two separate pieces.
Grab your paper plate, pen, and scissors. Place your paper plate on the shirt and draw as many circles as you can fit on each piece of material. I was able to get 3 circles on each one, and you should average 3-4 depending on how large your shirt is.
Cut out all of your circles, you should have a little stack of 6-8 pieces.
Now cut about two inches out from the edges, and go all the way around the circle. It will get smaller and smaller until you can’t cut anymore.
Your piece should now look like this strip here.
Now grab both ends and stretch as long as you can. You will see these pieces get about twice as long as they were before you started stretching them. Then just hold one end up, and run your other end down the entire length a few times to create more little ruffles in it. Do this to all of your pieces.
Now take that bottom seam portion you had earlier from scrap, and cut a small piece out.
Find the middle of your lengths, and tie that small scrap piece together to hold all of your strands together for your scarf.
Save that leftover seam scrap, because these are great pieces to use to make your fabric flowers with! Cute accessories for headbands, shirts, scarves, etc.
And there you have it! Easy as pie! This tutorial does take a little longer than yesterdays no sew tutorial, but it is just as fun!
Add a fabric flower, or tie to the side, there are many different ways to wear these scarves.
