Infinity Scarf from T-Shirt

You’ll need:

  • T-shirt (choose a large size)
  • Needle & thread
  • Fabric paint
  • Pencil
  • Scissors

Tshirt Infinity Scarf_2 Tshirt Infinity Scarf_3 Tshirt Infinity Scarf_4Take the shirt and fold it in half the long way. Lay it on a flat surface and smooth out any wrinkles. Cut across just below the neckline, the side of the shirt before the sleeves and right above the bottom hem.

Fabric paint can bleed through, so you don’t want the two pieces still touching or ruin your flat surface. I used this amazing gold metallic multi-surface paint. Fabric was listed on the back so I went with it!

Dip the eraser into the paint after every dot or it will be faded. I allowed some dots to be faded. Do this for both pieces of fabric, just on one side. Let the paint dry for about 2 hours.

This will allow you to make the scarf as wide or as skinny as you want depending on your outfit. Now sling it around your neck and show it off! I definitely want to try this with an old graphic tee or floral blouse.
