Hi everyone and Happy Friday! It’s Flashback Friday and Free File Friday!! So, let’s get started!!
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE to get a nice scarf for Christmas- and I believe, like shoes…you can never have too many scarves. You can have fancy scarves, warm and cozy scarves, casual scarves, patterned scarves, silky scarves, and the best kind….Homemade scarves!
So, I am going to show you how to quickly make a CUTE scarf without having to sew, or anything and using supplies you probably already have!
Before you watch, I have to tell you- this is one of my most commented on videos on YouTube. People LOVE my scissors, or hate that fact that I am using paper scissors on fabric–and are not afraid to tell me their opinion. I’ve gotten a good laugh over the comments over the last year! You gotta take comments on youtube with a grain of salt, because not everyone is as sweet as you guys!
How easy was that? You could do it right now!! Go grab an old t-shirt …you know you want to!
I made another one also…where I cut the loops- and braided the section I wanted braided. Then I tied an extra piece of t-shirt fabric around the top of the braid and at the bottom of the braid.
It looked good…but, now what? How would I get the ends back together? I could sew it….nah!
So, here’s what I did as Mr. Pink looked on, wondering what on earth I was doing 😉
I took each strand and pulled it to the matching end – on one end I cut a little slit, by folding the fabric over, and creating almost a button hole.
I then pulled the other end through that hole and tied a knot. I did this for each strand- making sure to match up the right ends. It left tiny little knots that would go behind my neck– and under my hair- so they didn’t bother me in the least. BUT, you could also take another piece of fabric and wrap it around those knots to hide it. 😉 Easy peasy–and NO SEWING!
I ‘recycled’ 2 t-shirts in this project and put them to much better use!
Here’s another pic- and also this could TOTALLY be doubled up!
