Pin 253, Recycled T-shirt Infinity Scarf


I love the look and warmth of a scarf around my neck. And this pin offers a very simple way to create that look by using an old t-shirt that you probably have sitting in your closet. You do, however, need to use a large or extra large T-shirt, maybe you can snag one from your man. Preferably a plain one unless it has a cool logo or pattern you want to see. Unfortunately I only had one usable shirt I was willing to part with so I ran out to the local Goodwill (I love that place!) for some sweet, cheap T’s. I like the idea of recycling one rather than buying a new one at the craft store. Plus used ones always have that lived in feel. Here’s what I found:


Four t-shirts, 1 blue, 1 heather blue, 1 heather gray, and 1 heather green. All for the insane price of $5.50. They are not bad quality either. Two are Gap and one is Banana Republic. Some decent finds I must say. And I chose shirts that were worn in and very stretchy so that I could stretch them even more after slicing them up. I almost didn’t want to cut them. But then I did anyway. Be sure to wash them before, especially if they are thrift store finds. So here are the simple instructions that I followed as per and here is the original pin.

Materials Needed:

T-shirt (website recommends  XL or XXL, she used XL 53% polyester, 47% cotton blend T, I used XL 100% cotton)



Lay the shirt on a flat surface, smoothing out any lumps and keeping the edges together. Cut a straight line (or as straight as you can), from armpit to armpit.

IMG_0042Now stretch the hell out of it. You will have a large loop so put your foot in one end and push. Stretch as much as you want, once you wash it you’ll have to stretch it again. It’s all good though. Now start digging through your clothing donation bag that’s sitting in the corner of your bedroom and get cutting.

PS: DON’T throw away your scraps! I’ll show you what you can do with them next week!


252 to go………
