Easy Upcycled Scarf...From a Shirt!!

I went through a bag of hand me down clothes from my sister and niece...found this shirt that didn't quite fit and looked really bad on me!!

I did like the animal print though, but not the style of the shirt.

I also noticed the bottom portion of the scarf...hmmm, the edges are already finished!

and it's just sewn onto the bodice with one line of stitching.

Get out your seam ripper ladies!!

Here's a ripping tip...hold the fabric coming off with your index and middle fingers and the bottom part with your ring finger and thumb, pulling and spreading apart as you go. This helps to "show" the little stitches as you rip them.

One scarf all finished with only seam ripping involved.

Here it is just draped over...

or in a loose knot!

When you are going through your clothes to give to charity or your are thrift store shopping look for things that can be transformed into something else.

You might not like the style of something any more, put the print and fabric are still cute.

Happy ripping,

  5. I'm at lunch blog tripping, just read your post. You gave me a marvelous idea! I've got a sheer wadder of a tunic that I couldn't bear throwing away from last summer. Thats what I'll do with it - whip up a cute scarf - alls not loss after all. Now I'm glad that I saved it! THANKS!
