No Sew Infinity Scarf

Oooh!  Have I got an easy project for you!

It’s called an infinity scarf because it goes around, and around, and around…. Okay, it’s just a continuous loop, but still…infinity sounds way cooler.

Start with a knit tee shirt you don’t wear anymore.  And some scissors.  Those are the ONLY supplies you need for this project.

Cut a straight line under the armpits of the shirt.  Now cut off the hem.

Give the center section of the tee shirt a BIG STRETCH--

--and you’re done!

You can embellish this scarf anyway you’d like – ribbons, brooches, buttons, whatever you’d like!

Make a bunch more, and accessorize all your favorite outfits and clear out your closet at the same time!

Make sure you don’t throw the sleeves away.  They could come in handy for something – like a face mask for one of your kids.  It will help conceal his true identity from all of his brothers enemies. 

Just cut off the hem, straighten out the shoulders, and cut some eye holes.  Your little guy will love it!

He’ll also love it if you make a wanted poster of him.  :)

Okay.  That was just for fun.  Back to the scarf…

There are several ways to wear this scarf.  Here are two ways:

As a scarf; or double it up and wear it as a belt.

It’s fun to change things up, isn’t it?  Just like with this dress here.

A few days ago, I realized that every Sunday this year I’ve worn something I either made or refashioned to Church.  Granted; it’s only been 5 weeks, but…hmmm…wheels in my head turning…oh my…I may be onto something… 

I’ve got a lot of things in my closet that I haven’t worn in forever

I haven’t thrown them out because I have lots of refashioning ideas…

“Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?”

“Um, I think so, Brain, but if Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why does he keep doing it?!”  (Oh Ash!  Thanks so much for the laughs! I heart Pinky!)

No?  You weren’t thinking that?  Oh….neither was I…

I was thinking – could I keep changing things up?  Keep refashioning?  Keep making stuff –and NOT wear the same thing to Church ALL year?!  Could I find 52 different ways to shake up my wardrobe?

Gasp!  I think I could!  I think the challenge will be lots of fun!  I’ll call it

“What I Wore Sunday!”

I won’t wear the same outfit the same way twice.  Every week I’ll incorporate something I either refashioned or made myself.  52 different outfits.  Stay tuned, and we’ll see how it goes!

…but if something looks completely ridiculous, you have to tell me!  I have zero fashion sense!

So, lets count this one as Week #1:

  2. Totally fitting that it's your E-man on the wanted poster. And, lucky for you, you get two week off this year (unless you dress up for General Conference)!

  3. That is too cute - the mask on your little man:) Sooo going to have to try that one!

  4. Very cute and I think you are off to a great year of wear repurposed stuff!

  5. Nat. What a great way to repurpose your t-shirts. I want to thank you so much for linking up each week to my "Thriving on Thursdays" linky party. You always have such fantastic ideas. The party will be starting again in just over 12 hours so if you get a chance, I'd love to see what you've been up to this week.
