DIY Scarf from Shirt

The cold weather is officially among us! Andddd, I’m already over it. So today I bring you a little DIY to help keep you all a little warmer! I always tell Connor how jealous I am of mens’ flannels because they are so much warmer and softer than womens’ flannels. Do you agree? Well, I gave in and just bought one from the mens’ section but of course it doesn’t fit right no matter how hard I try, so I had to find a new use for it. What better way to hold on to the softness then a scarf which comes in such close contact with your face and skin!?

I have to warn you about this DIY though…I literally made it up as I went. No planning ahead. And halfway through, I changed the style from loose to snug. So, I’m sure for all of you crafters you may find there is a wayyy easier method of doing this. But I wanted to share it anyway, mostly to inspire, and hopefully for everyone else it works out better and faster! So, with that in mind…here goes!

^^ My favorite part of this scarf is that it has a pocket!! Also, I love how the buttons show along the bottom of the scarf. ^^

I started by laying out the shirt, ironing (because clearly I didn’t!) and buttoning it up. I then cut off the sleeves following along the seam on the side closest to the sleeve. I then pinned the hole closed.

Place the shirt on its side and pin the bottom opening closed. Cut off the collar and pin that opening closed, as well.

Go back and sew along all of those pinned areas.

Take the collar intersection seams and fold, following the steps in the photos. Sew your pieces together to form one seam.

You will now fold the bottom of the shirt, following the steps in the photos. Sew this new edge.

Go back and fold any pieces that are not hanging quite right, as well as your buttons or clasps. The folds and overall shape of the scarf are going to look odd when laying flat, but once it is wrapped around your neck, you really don’t notice.

Ok, furr real. No one can deny that you want to just poke this bunny’s chubby belly. Am I right? Well lately, I have been missing the rabbit I had as a childhood pet (“Cleo”), and I have insisted that Connor and I have a bunny farm when we get a house. But until then, he has been kind enough to let me buy this tank top to keep me from going out to buy the actual thing. Although, I am kind of bummed that it could take up to a MONTH to get here! Come on, I need my fix nowww.
