How to Pick & Lay Out Fabric for a No-Sew T-Shirt Scarf

Learn how to make a no-sew t-shirt scarf with designer Jennifer Wiese in this Howcast video, part 1 of a 3-part series.


Here's a great no sew project for old t-shirts.

Everyone needs a good scarf. We have a couple of scarves made here which we're going to show you how to create. This is a great project for those old team t-shirts you have lying around. Or if you have something fun with a good print it makes a really cute accessory.

These fringed scarves are so cute in the summer paired with a tank top. Or you could use a heavier fabric in the winter to make something a little bit warmer and season appropriate.

To make this fringed t-shirt scarf you're going to need of course a t-shirt. When picking your t-shirt there are a couple of things to think about.

First the size. We're using a large t-shirt today which makes a great scarf because you can double it as you can see here. I can wear it either long or doubled for a shorter scarf.

Another thing to think about is color. This t-shirt is really fun because as you can see we've got two different prints which will make for a really interesting fun accessory.

We're going to be cutting our t-shirt across the width. So, just know that if you're using a smaller size t-shirt the circle of the scarf is going to be smaller because you're going to be in closer to the middle. Versus a larger t-shirt. You're going to have more room for a longer scarf.

Okay. Now let's get started cutting.
