To save your pennies for something like, well, food . . . here’s a quick tutorial you can use to turn a t-shirt into a scarf. If you want to learn how to make an infinity scarf, this is the easiest and quickest way to do it!
Infinity Scarf from T-Shirt
- T-shirt (choose a large size)
- Needle & thread
- Fabric paint
Take 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.
Now you have two pieces. Separate them, placing a piece of cardboard under each one. 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.
