As you may have noticed, I'm a big fan of recycling/upcycling t-shirts. So when I heard about the different scarves made out of t-shirts over at the DIY Dish, I knew I'd have to give it a try. They have so many good ideas over there!!
As soon as I saw the ruffled scarf, I knew I wanted to make one for me and another one would be a great birthday gift for my aunt (also my son's godmother). When trying out a new project I like to make two, just in case one doesn't come out so nice. AND I took a chance and make mine out of fleece and the other out of some knit material I had on hand (I didn't think I had a t-shirt big enough).
With the fleece, I made 9 really big circles (10.5 inches). Love it - I wear it with my winter coat (so that's every day here in chilly New England).
With the yellow knit, I used every inch that I had and made nine 8.5 inch circles and three 6.5 inch circles. (Too lazy to iron out my material & with this project I could get away with it!)
In case you were curious where I craft/sew and why you only see the cutting mat - in the kitchen and there is always tons of other stuff (and kids) all around me!!
For both scarves, instead of using fabric glue, I sewed them together at the top and tied the last strip around where it was sewn together.
I also love the yellow one!!! I wasn't sure how the stripes would look but I'm very happy with it. Definitely a nice POP of color around the face. I hope Auntie C likes it. I'll also make a Singed Flower pin to include with the scarf - I think burgandy might look nice.
