A Fun Ruffled Scarf from an Old T-Shirt

So as I mentioned in the previous post I have been absolutely dying to buy one of Lindsey's scarves over at the Pleated Poppy. But, now that we are adding up the initial costs of full day preschool for James and daycare for Ella, my start-up clothes allowance for my new job is shrinking. So, I looked at her scarf, searched around Blogland a bit, begged a t-shirt off of my husband and tah-dah!! I made this scarf in about five minutes.


Make it!

I found a great tutorial here.




  1. Very cute!
    Saw something similar to this on a local daytime talk show here.
    Cut the shirt (under the arms) and then above the seam on the bottom, pull to stretch. You can also do this making several 2" strips and pulling those = infinite scarves. OR cut 1 straight line and then scallops (do as many as you like), again pull. I will post the link if I can find it. No Sew.

  2. That is super cute! I read the tutorial and it seems pretty easy, we will be going through our closets this weekend to get rid of some clothes, I think I may have to make a few of these! Thanks for posting!

  3. Here it is!

  4. I'm glad you all like it! My husband better watch out--I am eyeing all of his shirts now!

  5. Have just discovered your blog, Love it.
    Loving your scarf!


I love your feedback!
