After donating many hardly-worn shirts over the years from my daughters, I decided to make something out of them. I've seen the Infinity scarves being worn and I really like them. They're quite pricey in the stores! So I got to thinking, Why can't I make one out of a sweater or shirt? I perused the Internet and found this great tutorial (and I watched a lot of tutorials!) on how to make one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WSiwjgXLKQ
This is how mine turned out......now I need to go raid my daughters' closet! :)
As a side note, a lot of the tutorials say to use fabric with the dimensions of 60 x 12 or 13 inches. Well, since I used a smaller shirt, I had to cut it up and sew the pieces together to get the same size of fabric in the end. Being that it had such a geometrical print, it hid the seams quite well. The measurement of my scarf was roughly 14 x 62. I used a seam allowance of about a half inch for everything. Like the other tutorials, I sewed the ends together the same way and I whip-stitched the opening that's left in the end.
