I needed something to cover up my sunburned neck, so I made this little scarf out of an old shirt.





inspired by this scarf at freepeople.com-- http://www.freepeople.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/products.detail/productID/31683e0d-1025-4a4b-9b8a-41776dc07bfb/categoryID/d7026bad-0904-43cf-a1c9-983cad15b067

Maybe if I find some pretty print jersey I'll make one more like the picture...



----TUTORIAL----

It's really easy to make!

1. Cut out a triangle shape from a tshirt. Try to cut it at right angles along the grain sort of so it won't curl all wrong.


2. Cut some strips for the fringe out of leftover fabric. Make sure you cut them in the right direction (across the stretchy part) so that they can curl right. They should be about a half inch in width. You can do them all the same length or increasing lengths like mine. After you cut them, stretch them out so that the edges curl under. I used 19 strips total. nine on each side and one in the middle.


3. Measure and mark to make sure you place each fringe equal lengths apart. Mine are each 4cm apart, though you could make them closer if you want more fringe. Cut a very small hole at each mark and one on the bottom corner.


4. Loop a fringe through the hole. Fold the strip in half, then stick the folded part through the hole from the top. Next slip the ends of the fringe through the loop made by the folded part like this--


5. One side will curl under naturally from the knit of the fabric. You will have to curl the other side under yourself as you tie the fringe on. Just sort of fold it under a little bit and make sure the knots hold it in place. Finish looping all your fringe.

6. Tie it around your neck with the two corners of the triangle. Then take some pictures and show me what it looks like!

Let me know if you have any questions!
