T-Shirt Scarf Tutorial


This project falls into the "easy" category, even for beginners. If you can sew a relatively straight line and can use straight pins without putting your eye out, success is all but guaranteed.

Step One - Select two old t-shirts.


Step Two - Cut the T-shirts into strips. I made mine 8" wide, but you can use any width you want. Also, I cut my strips horizontally to highlight the t-shirt's designs, but cutting vertically will work just as well.


Step Three - Select two strips to begin with and pin them right side together on one of the short sides.


Step 4 - Sew along the side you pinned.



Step Five - Keep repeating this process until you have two pieces that are the length that you want the scarf to be when it is finished.


Step Six - With right sides facing each other, pin the long sides of the two pieces together and sew, making sure to leave the ends open.



Step Seven - Turn the scarf right side out and stitch the ends closed about two inches from the bottom. In this photo, my pieces are two different lengths. I cut the green piece to even them up after I sewed the end shut. No worries!



Step Eight - Make fringe at the end simply by cutting slits with your scissors.

Congrats. You're done! Wear and enjoy!

  2. Very cool! Even after the T-shirts aren't wearable as T's, you can still have the memories . . .
