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)

  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!

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!
