As you know. I am a scientist. I work in a lab. For those of you that have never been in a real lab! they are kind of a messy place, not the kind of place you want to rock your nice business casual attire or even your own DIY look. So, for me, I wear t-shirts pretty much every day, which is fantastic most of the time. I love t-shirts, they are soft and comfy – like carrying around a piece of home on your back. But sometimes, I want to dress my t-shirts up a bit so that I look a little more presentable for a lunch date or something. What is a girl to do? Make some t-shirt accessories!
Here I am presenting some nice and simple DIY steps to make yourself an infinity scarf all by some imagination using an old T-Shirt.
It all takes you 30 seconds only to make an infinity scarf out of a t-shirt. I used and will prefer to use XXXL t-shirts that I bought for a couple of bucks at the craft store, but you could use any old t-shirt as per your convenience. However, the bigger the shirt you start with, the bigger your scarf will be. My XXXL shirts made really big (perhaps a little too big) scarves.
Do you have 30 seconds? Alright, here is how to make an infinity scarf.
I will be showing you a simple way how to make a quick embellishment for your scarf out of your leftover t-shirt, but honestly, I am in love with these scarves as awesome as they look and feel.
You can wear one or multiple. If you want to wear more than two, I suggest making them a little skinnier.
But, if you are the embellishing type, let’s make a 1-minute t-shirt flower. Start by going back to your t-shirt scraps.
Follow the following simple steps in order to get yourself the DIY Infinity scarf.
Step 1: Cut your t-shirt sleeve with a pair of scissors as shown and then repeat on the other sleeve, or better yet, a sleeve from another shirt. You will have several loops bound by the armpit seam. Stretch those loops out. You should have something that looks like this. And also, and find a couple of safety pins to hold them together in one place.
Step 2: Hold your big loops together and fasten one safety pin around the two seams and the other around the loops 180 degrees away.
Step 3: Grab hold of those two safety pins and twist them in opposite directions. Keep twisting until you just can’t twist anymore. Move these frills in a circular motion until a rope shaped twisty material is obtained.
Step 4: Once it gets super-twisty, it will want to loop around itself, guide it into a spiral – just like putting your hair in a bun. Move it in a way that it brings the outside of the spiral to the back and uses the safety pin to secure it. The other safety pin can be used to pin your flower onto your scarf, or anything else you like to give it a girly feel. When you pin it onto something, insert the safety pin vertically, which keeps your flower from looking too droopy.
After seeing the final product, you won’t be able to believe that you had a shirt once. It’s a complete makeover to your shirt that is now transformed into a scarf, an infinity scarf per se.
Now you have handmade DIY Infinity scarf to rock in business meetings, the family gets together, or you can even gift it to your loved ones.
