Tube Tshirt Scarf

I know with fall there are so many scarf tutorials out there so here is another one to add to your list. I love when you can reuse an old product to make a new project. For this scarf I used an old t-shirt and some eyelet lace. I didn't want to make a boring tube scarf so the eyelet provides a sweet and feminine touch.First cut the top of your shirt off under the arm. you want to try and save as much of the shirt for the scarf as you can.

Next cut your lace or eyelet the same length as 1 of your short pieces +2 inches. Mine was 8" x 18" You might also want to zig zag or serge the sides of the eyelet to keep it from fraying.Next measure the shirt across and mark the center. Cut down the center of the shirt with the seams on the sides.
Next cut off the bottom hem of the shirt. Then open up the shirt pieces and match the ends where you cut the hem. Make sure to match up the seams. Then pin in place and use a zig zag to sew the two ends together making 1 long strip.

Now pin the sides together and sew together using a zig zag to make a long tube.
Turn the tube right side out. On the ends fold 1/4" in and press. This will be your seam. Repeat with the other side.

Slide the eyelet into the tube and pin in place. Sew the tube and eyelet together. You can hand stitch it if you don't want the seam but I don't really care.

Repeat with the other side and now you have a tube scarf.

You can wrap it twice.
Or leave it long.

On another note if you want it longer use a longer shirt or a man's shirt.
