Copycat Scarf

Last weekend we went from beautiful, sunny, hot skies to cold, grey, and rainy all within a day.  Of course the lack of sunshine got me a bit down and I figured I had better start thinking about my fall wardrobe.

So, even though today's tutorial is a little ahead of the season it could easily be altered to make something much more light and summery for you~

All you need is a T-shirt and a pair of scissors.


Steps:
1) Lay your T-shirt out on a flat surface and cut a straight line from under one arm hole to the other.


You should have something that looks like this:


 You can toss away the top part with the neckline and arm holes, or save it for another project, we're only going to use the bottom portion.

2) Rotate your tube so that the bottom of the t-shirt is farthest away from you and the edge that you just cut is closest to you.

3) Now you just need to cut long skinny strips up to about the 1/2 or 2/3 point.  My strips are about a half inch wide.


4) Continue that all the way along the width of your tube.


5) And now comes the fun part.  Stretch each little strip down so that it curls into itself and is even longer, skinnier, and fringier.


6) And voila!  You're done.  Just slip it on over your head and if it's big enough, double it up.  Now you have a new and stylish scarf!

I call this the copycat scarf because it's not my idea at all.  In fact, I found it in my suggested videos to watch on YouTube.  You can check out the video below with Erica Domesek from P.S. I Made This...

      
   
Happy fringing everyone!!  Have a great weekend and don't forget to check out the linky party tab up top along with the Follow my Friends tab~
