DIY: T-Shirt into Infinity Scarf

Easy DIY Tutorial: T-Shirt into an Infinity Scarf.  girlinthegarage.net

I’m a girl who loves to accessorize.  There’s just something about adding an extra detail to an outfit with a pop of color or a fun print.  Scarves are a great way to achieve that look without much effort.  I have about 10, but I could easily have so many more if I’d let myself buy them!  Now that I have a DIY solution, I see many more scarves in my future.  ;)

1.  Find an old t-shirt in your closet or head to Goodwill and buy one for a few dollars.  (Larger sizes and longer shirts work best.)

2.  For sizing, I grabbed an infinity scarf that I already own and laid it over the shirt before cutting.  The width is 14 inches.

3.  Then I cut across below the neck and above the bottom seam.

4.  I flipped the pieces so that the “good” sides (outside of shirt) were facing each other and then ran my sewing machine across the top and bottom edges.  The longer edges are left unfinished just like the store-bought scarf I used as inspiration.

I’m in love with the softness and the pattern on this scarf – and I can see wearing it with several different outfits!

Do you have an old shirt you’d like to repurpose into a scarf?  I’d love to hear your ideas!

    Super cute!! I can’t believe it’s made out of an old shirt. The print is so pretty. Great idea! Pinning :)

    I also love scarves, and what a great way to use an older t-shirt. I see a trip to the thrift store in my future also. Thanks for such great information.

    This Is a great idea, the blue pattern is so pretty! I made a scarf the other day using a similar technique. I used a huge (and super wide) maternity shirt and just cut the top off at the neckline and cut off the bottom hem. I’m going to use your technique next time :)

      Thank you so much Niki! A maternity shirt definitely would have a lot of fabric to work with- that’s a great idea! (Especially if you already have some that you’re not planning on wearing again.)
