DIY Tshirt Infinity Scarf Tutorial

Hello!

Okay, well I was  planning on doing this tutorial next week, but I just got really excited about it and just had to do it today. I have an AWESOME tutorial that ANYONE can do, and it is a lot of fun! With the cold weather coming, us crafters have to stay warm and stylish….but of course we want to do it with something that we made. This scarf will solve that problem 😉 Plus, this is another way to use those old tshirts! (However, I do recommend using a large or extra large shirt for these scarves.)

So, I hope that you enjoy this tutorial!

Oh, I forgot to mention to cut off the hem at the bottom of the shirt. Then, you want to turn the “tube” sideways like this:

In the picture above you can see what I call my “false seams.” I just hot glued the edges and folded inward to give the material a nicer finish.

I think that this is such an adorable DIY! And, another good thing about it is that it took me less than an hour!

In my gray scarf (in case you were wondering) I actually cut a couple strips of a tie dye shirt that I never wear and included it into the scarf and it added a cute, fun effect. These would be an adorable addition to any fall or winter outfit. Please tell me what you think!

T-shirt Bracelet Tutorial

Today I have another tutorial for you! I really hope you guys like this one! It is very easy, and is a great use for if you previously did a t-shirt DIY , and still have the leftover sleeves. A few weeks ago I made a few t-shirt bracelets, and I thought that I would make a tutorial.

*Please excuse my chipped nails, they look pretty rough! 😉

So let’s begin!

Somehow the pictures got deleted, but the first step is to cut strips from the sleeve about a half an inch thick.

I think that these turned out really well, and they are actually look even more neon than the pictures show! I don’t know about you, but I love neons! These bracelets actually match a sweatshirt that I have! How about you? Are you more of a neon person, or pastel?

T-shirt Bracelets

Hello! Today I just have a little bonus post to show you a cute little project I did this week. I was making yet another DIY tank top(for a little friend of mine) and, as always, I felt that it was a waste throwing both sleeves away after cutting them off. I decided to try to make a bracelet or two out of them. At first I didn’t think that I would have enough material for making a bracelet, but I soon found out that I had more than enough! I got about three bracelets out of both sleeves combined. I made fishtail bracelets, but if I would have done just a simple braid I probably could have gotten more bracelets out of it. Here are a few pics of the finished product:

These bracelet are a great use of leftover scraps from cutting up a shirt, and are also a cute addition to any fun, summer outfit!

Getting ready For Summer?

I know I am! Today I have a craft I have been working on for the past few days. It is SO cute and summery– and of course, FUN!

I present to you another t-shirt DIY!! I really should have made you guys a tutorial, but I didn’t even think about it until halfway through! But I am planning on doing it again, don’t worry! 

This shirt was actually sort of an experiment because I had nothing to lose. My friend had an over-sized tie-dyed t-shirt that she said she wouldn’t wear and was about to give it away. I asked her if she wanted me to do a little craft magic with it before she decided to give it away, and she agreed. It is similar to my previous tank top, but this time I did couple new upgrades. This time, on the wrapping on the racer-back I did the common friendship bracelet square knot, and it added a really cute effect. I also tried fringe on the bottom for the first time!

So, here is the final product:

I ended up a bit large, but it would be a great bathing suit cover-up! This craft definitely got me in the summer mood! So what do you think?

DIY: Racerback Tanktop

Hello fellow Crafters! Today I have a tutorial for you! I have noticed that recently on Youtube and Pinterest many people are making use of their old t-shirts fun again by turning them into tank tops. With the warm weather coming, I want to be equipped! I checked out quite a few tutorials and watched a lot of videos on YouTube  so I decided to try it out. I made my own tutorial for you guys, but if it is not clear enough for you, please leave a comment below 🙂

Warning: a lot of pictures!!

Ok, so let’s get started!

At this point, put your shirt over a square pillow to make the following steps easier.

Now you can see if you cut crooked on any of the steps this is a good time to fix them.

I also shaped the sleeves up a bit

The next step is to double know the long string you made around the racerback and wrap it around the shirt and then finish it off with another double knot.

You can finish at this step, but you can also add string around the shoulders to the shoulders like I did.

I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. I did make a few mistakes though, so I may be making another one. I made it a little crooked on the back, hopefully it’s not too noticeable. But, for my first time, not too bad, eh?

Well, I really hope you like this tutorial!
