You Will Need:

- 2 T-shirts in coordinating colors, size large

- Thread

Step 1

This how-to is reprinted with permission from "Never Been Stitched: 45 No-Sew & Low-Sew Projects" by Amanda Carestio © 2014 and published by Lark Crafts, an imprint of Sterling Publishing Co., Inc.
With 128 pages and beautiful, full-color photos, "Never Been Stitched" by Amanda Carestio (author of Fa La La La Felt) offers a treasury of 45 fabric projects that require little or no sewing. Readers can use a variety of materials from around the home to make gifts, wearable projects, and decor including bags, pillows, and toys.

Step 2

Cut the hems off of the 2 T-shirts.

Step 3

Cut 15-inch (38.1 cm) strips from the body of the T-shirt.

Step 4

Cut the sleeves off the T-shirts and cut the body portion into 15-inch (38.1 cm) widths.

Step 5

Pin the short 15-inch (38.1 cm) edges together with right sides facing each other, and then stitch them using a 1/4-inch (6 mm) seam allowance.

Step 6

Continue to stitch T-shirt lengths together until the scarf measures 76 inches (193 cm) long.

Step 7

Lay the ends of the scarf flat and make 29 cuts up into the scarf, each 5 inches (12.7 cm) long and 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) wide, to create a fringe at both ends.

Step 8

Using a square knot, tie two fringe strips together and then give them a bit of a tug to create a rolled rope effect. Repeat for the remaining fringe strips.

Step 9

Knot the ends of the fringe.
