T-Shirt Scarf Tutorial

OK, 
We are counting this as Number 8.
Back to business here.
And
The deal I made with myself.
I cannot keep pinning things on Pinterest
without doing some of the things that I have pinned.
So,
that being said,
I will share the way that I made this.
There are tons of tutorials out there.
I think that I have them all.
Here goes with another.
I literally made this,
start to finish,
in
1/2 Hour.


Start with t-shirts or as in this case, tank tops.
Being in the screenprinting business
affords me the luxury of lots of
brand new, misordered shirts.
More than I like to admit.


Cut them into five inch strips.

Then five inch squares.
If you don't have a rotary cutter, this might take a little longer.

Stack them up.

And start sewing point to point.
Lay each one down where the point ends on the one behind.
I stretch stitched,
but
you could use a zig zag or even a straight stitch.
You can make this as long as you want.
You could even use bigger or smaller squares,
and the color possibilities are endless.
I cut up two tanks and two t-shirts
and
I have enough for a couple more, I think.
And wait....
We ruined about 25 Steeler Gold shirts yesterday...
I see some Steeler scarves coming.
Can I get those done before the next game?

Great quick gift idea! Hmmm, better go raid hubs t-shirts before he gets home! TFS.
Pinterest? I've been hearing about it everywhere and how addictive it is! Maybe not a good thing for me to check out!!!

Have a great day~

Just wanted to reply to your question re the owl I made my daughter and the answer is that I drew up my own pattern for the owl.
