Oops– you need a last minute gift idea?
Much like the t-shirt scarf I made here complete with video— I wanted to make a t-shirt scarf that I saw floating around Pinterest.
However–it was an etsy pin, and there were no directions on how to make your own…Well…that didn’t stop me!! I had to figure it out!
I wanted it braided it on one side–and straight on the other…so I started making it just like the other one–Cutting strips of t-shirt in aqua and chocolate and stretching them. I tried braiding them as loops…but…
The problem I was running into– was that if I braided one side, the other section of the t-shirt scarf would braid as well.
So, I reluctantly 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 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!
