Scarf mania

Happy HaPpY Friday people!! YAY!!!! It's a bright sunny SoCal day and I'm ready for the weekend ;)
Some of you may remember not too long ago, I posted about my pinspired t-shirt scarf here. Well, I made some more but this time, I dyed my own t's to make some pretty spring scarves. I started out with 5 men's size XXXL white seamless shirts (fruit of the loom I think) from Walmart. $12.99 for the 5 pack.
I dyed 2 of the shirts fuschia and 3 of them teal (by following the instructions on the box).

HaPpY colors :)

I'll spare you the whole tutorial this time since you can go back and read it in my other post. Here are the after shots (taken on 2 different days, I didn't change my outfit for the sake of the post, ha ha).
Pink:


Teal (more aqua-ish I think):
They were  made with 2 t-shirts each. I definitely like the fuller look with these :)
I had one teal shirt left over so I decided to experiment and I made a basic jersey infinity scarf:
I just cut the bottom seam off the shirt, and cut a straight line under the armpits to make a giant tube. I stretched it out a bit, then looped it around my neck. I may even like this one better than the others :)
So, there you have it....scarf mania!
Have a GREAT weekend everyone :)

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I treated myself to a $5 bouquet from Trader Joe's today :)
Happy :)

  7. LOVE THEM! So, so cute, and I'm still so amazed that they are seriously made with t-shirts! If a special someone ever wants to send one my way, I'm especially fond of the teal/aqua!

  10. Pinning this to try very soon! Great colors--very you! I think a yellow scarf would also look beautiful with your complexion, BTW.

  11. I love them too - I agree with everyone, the colors add a great pop for spring time :) and I think the third one is a cool style too! p.s. I love TJ's we just got one in RI - happy days :) and I love treating myself to a bouquet of flowers! thanks for the tutorial, although I'd rather just buy one from your etsy shop - will you be selling them??
