T-Shirt Scarf 5 minutes TOPS…..

Okay, here is my first “Want to Make” from Pinterest. I have looked at this idea over and over and thought hmmm can it really be that easy…Answer YES! It took me a bit longer because I decided to hand dye and add a flower to it.. But here goes!

T-shirt scarf and flower

There is my sweet E with her finished product! She helped take photos of the process and even helped in the making!

Step 1 any old t-shirt or one from Wally for $2 like we had plain old white for our dying pleasure..Cut off bottom hem and discard..

Step 2 cut 1 inch strips up to seam of arms…

Step 3, the fun part align all your strips into one big circle..AND PULL!!!

Strips ready to be aligned and Stretched!

Step 4..now I decided to dye ours..BUT if you have a color you like no need to do this step..I dyed ours with Wilton cake colors because that is all the dye I had on hand..little bit of water and a tub laid strip in for an ombre effect

Dying to meet you...

Step 5..dry, or continue from step 3…Align all your loops together into 1 big circle and get ready to add embellishments..

Step 6. I took one of the loops that seemed a bit bigger than the rest and cut to make a long strand, grabbed the bottom of the loops and started lassoing that baby together.. I tucked the ends into the loops to hide them.. I took another loop and cut it into 3 long stands..

Step 7…I proceeded to braid…

Step 8..I did bust out the machine for a mater of 2 secs to secure the ends and cut off the knot but HONESTLY no need if you don’t have a machine, made one for my Mom today to prove it takes 5 minutes with no dying and just tucked the ends…

So to add braid follow step 6 AND WaaaLaaaa a new scarf in 5 minutes minus the dying!! I’ll add the flower tutorial hopefully tomorrow when this kitten stops trying to swat every letter on the screen as I type…
