A Scarf...From a T-Shirt! Tutorial

I LOVE Pinterest it is a virtual pin board of the most amazing ideas ever thought of.  I found this idea on there the other day. A t-shirt scarf!  I have a ton of old t-shirts and instead of tossing I'm going to upcycle{use what you have for a different purpose}, hence saving mullah! The best part?  NO SEWING!!! Doesn't get much easier than that.

Follow along below and I will show you how I did mine!

First, lay out the t-shirt to be cut

then you want to cut off the hem, like so{very detailed pics, because I need step by step pictures to start a new project and thought you would like them too}

then start cutting in 1-2" strips, horizontally across the shirt, up to the armpit then stop.
you will have a nice pile of strips.
Now take them one at a time or 3-4 at a time and start tugging gently. They will start to curl in on themselves.

Now here is the part where you have creative license to go crazy!!  You can stick with one color or mix with another. Twist them, braid them, knot them,layer then, whatever strikes your fancy. Here are a couple of pictures of what I did with mine!!

The possibilities are endless!
Have fun!
