Today was the day folks.....Christmas came down. ALL of it! And, my hubby is at work so I had to do all of the work (boo). But, it's done and clean and I am a happy girl. I did manage to tackle a craft last night that has been on my to-do list for a while. I was planning on making them for Xmas gifts actually, but never got around to it. Story of my life, ha ha!!! I was VERY "pinspired" when I saw this:
SUPER cute t-shirt scarves, yes??! YES!!!
After reading their tutorial, I ran to my drawers and tried to find all of the cute colored shirts that I never wear anymore. Then, I re-read the tutorial and realized that I had already gone wrong. The best t-shirts to use are size XL or larger and it's best if they don't have any side seams. Huh?? ALL of my shirts had side seams and were size small or medium. What the??!! Off to walmart I went! I found these for $9.99/4 pack....
Colors: kind of boring...gray, black, navy, and gray/blue
Bonus: NO side seams
First step, cut the bottom seam off:
Jersey fabric doesn't fray, and when you stretch the tube strip out, it rolls up making a spaghetti like loop. See:
(& try to stretch them all out the same amount....try).
Next, you take your spaghetti tubes and twist them a bit:
Likey??!! Hope so!!! I think they're pretty cute and even with the double layered look, it's pretty cheap to make ($5 per double layered scarf). Now that's MY kind of craft :)
Check ya later :)
