  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 1
    Step 1

    All you need is :

    a old large t-shirt
    scissors
    fabric paint (but I used acrylic)

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 2
    Step 2

    just get an old t-shirt, any colour you wish, the old t-shirt should be large here I have a medium size t-shirt

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 3
    Step 3

    Use fabric paint or any other paint (I used acryllic) and using your hands paint your top with the colours of your own choice. By using your hands it creates a different texture and roughness to the necklush

    I used green, black and white

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 4
    Step 4

    cut across (t-shirts waist), using sissors depending on how thick you want your necklush, a ruler width should be your minimum

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 5
    Step 5

    you cut a few centimeters in to your t-shirt

    you get hold or the two ends and start tearing downwards towards the other side of your t-shirt

    the tearing part enables the necklush to curve/ roll

    when you reach the end of the t-shirt, due to the seam you should cut off your fabric with scissors

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 6
    Step 6

    keep repeating this until you reach underneath the sleeves of the t-shirt

    you should get something like this....or better

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 7
    Step 7

    however, you the seams are visable so collect the two ends of the fabric, collect them at their seams

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 8
    Step 8

    tie them up using one of the fabric strips

    Step 9

    so it sould look something like that

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 10
    Step 10

    if your a bit confused heres picture diagrams

    the orange lines is where you cut with your scissors
    the red = is where you rip

    when you cut your t-shirt, you cut front and back at together

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 11
    Step 11

    what do I mean about tearing

    so here is the cut you have done with your scissors

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 12
    Step 12

    get hold of both ends and pull
    when you are pulling you should tear yout t-shirt in the same direction of the red lines (in setp 11)

    due to the seam on the other side of the t-shirt, you will have to cut it off

    (when tearing, make sure you tear both front and back of the t-shirt together)

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 13
    Step 13

    You should get something like this.... but a bit more realistic ..

  • How to make a t-shirt scarf. Ripped Scarf - Step 14
    Step 14

    you can still see the seams
    so use left over farbric
    get all the seams together and wrap around the seams (so it looks like step 8)
    and do the same with the other :)
