You may know that scarves are the hot accessory trend right now!   And anyone who knows me,  knows I’m a huge scarf lover!  I must own at least 20 scarves and I wear them with almost everything.

So when I saw Kim and Kris of DIY Dish do a no sew T-Shirt Scarf Tutorial I just couldn’t get it out of my mind!

How cute is THAT?!  Can you believe I made that scarf  from a t-shirt…..and the best part, no sewing required!!

How to Make a No Sew T-Shirt Scarf Tutorial

I bet it took me all of 15 mins to make a scarf from a t-shirt.  I used a t-shirt my husband had, but only wore once or twice.

Supplies Needed:

  • 1 XL or XXL t-shirt
  • 9″ paper plate
  • Scissors
  • decorative pin/flower (optional)

How to make a scarf using a t-shirt! no sewing required at


  1. lay t-shirt out flat (make sure you can get 8-12 circles)
  2. Use paper plate to trace 8-12 circles on t-shirt (4-6 on each side of the shirt)
  3. cut out circles
  4. cut each fabric circle into a spiral (*see how to do this in the video)
  5. stretch each piece of fabric and lay all pieces together
  6. tie around your neck and place a pretty rosette flower pin to dress it up!

Click here to watch Kim’s video tutorial to see more detail how to make this scarf and 2 others.  *Kim suggests gluing 2 pieces together, I did not do that, so my scarf is just a little shorter than her t-shirt scarf.

I love how light-weight this scarf is, I can wear it with a sweater or a t-shirt. So fashionable! these scarves are perfect for dressing up an outfit for any season!

    Your scarf is wonderful and I very much would like to make one.I have a question on the construction. How or do you attach spiraled circles together?

    I made the scarf for a gift and love it! I had some fabric hairbows laying around that I made last year and a few of them matched it perfect, and even better, they attach with alligator clips so you can change them up to match outfits :) Thanks so much for the great tutorial!
