NeedleReads: T-shirt Scarves
Sewing Project: T-shirt Scarves
T-shirts for cutting up
Scissors and/or rotary knives
cutting mats & rulers
What we did:
What a great class we had tonight! Despite the fact that there was a conflict in the meeting room schedule, we had plenty of room out in the library to do this project. Everyone managed to pick no-sew scarf options and they turned out fantastic! Here are some general guidelines and tips as well as links to a few of the patterns:
spiral ruffle scarf (although we didn't bother with the glue they mention in that link), t-shirt yarn scarves (either in an infinity scarf style or "ringlets"), finger-knit scarves, and a hole-y design inspired by this photo.
The Square Ruffle Scarf (this one does require sewing!)
Large + Loose finger knitting option
reverse applique scarf
"knotty" t-shrit yarn
Or the easiest option of all--cut one giant loop from your t-shirt (cut off the hem and cut straight across the top just under the sleeve) and wear that around your neck--2 minute scarf and surprisingly good-looking and comfy!
