Super simple tutorial using an old t-shirt!
I've had this lovely coral WWF shirt lying around for a while. I originally bought this for a friend only to find the bottom had a snag in it that was impossible to mend since the fabric got all stretched out. It's made of super soft knit jersey and I couldn't bear to throw it out, so I made it into a scarf!

    Step 1

    1. Iron your shirt if needed. Lay it out and cut off the sleeves, neck hem, and bottom hem as shown.

    2. Fold it in half length wise and start cutting your strips as indicated. As you move up the shirt, you may start getting shorter strips. Knot the ends to join them into a loop and add to your other strips.

    3. Once you've cut ally our strips, tug on them gently to stretch them out. At this point, you can braid together a few strips if you wish. Knot the ends together to form a loop.

    4. Braid the neck and bottom hems. Gather the strips at the seams and wrap the braided hems around it to hide the seams. Knot both ends together to secure. Trim ends.

    Wrap and wear! I love how the coral color brings a bold pop to an otherwise boring outfit. I also love how lightweight but practical it is; it actually keeps your neck warm on those cooler autumn days!

I love this idea! This seems like a very straighforward tutorial.. I've seen some video ones that drag on and on and you lose interest because they are off talking about something completely different... I love the colour! I am going to the thrift store tomorrow as there is one near me that has all their clothes and linens for a $1 a piece.. Maybe I can find some shirts to use there! I really hope so! Then I will be using this tutorial! Happy
