This is such an easy way to repurpose a that t-shirt your still love but doesn’t fit. I did this with a store-bought shirt several years ago and received so many compliments. Now to use one of my ice-dyed shirts to create a lovely scarf.
I ice dyed this shirt for Dave awhile back. The cut of the shirt was just not to his liking so since he was never going to wear it I wanted to do something with it. Because the colors are Christmasy, I thought a scarf would be great for me to wear during the holidays.
So let’s get started. Here’s what you need:
- scissors or cutting board and rotary cutter
Cut off the shirt hem and right under the arms. I like to do this with a scissors.
Now it can be worn several different ways. This one is looped around the neck twice.
Talking about ice dyeing, I will be closing my Icy Delights online class to new registrations on December 15 until February. So if you are interested in taking the class – which is available for registered students indefinitely – be sure and register before December 15. For my current students, this registration closing will not affect you. If you’d like more information on my class, check out this link.
On the gardening front, I finished my cleanup of the asparagus bed. I weeded and mulched in summer, but I usually don’t cut the ferns down until spring. I decided that once we had a freeze I’d go ahead and cut them down and clean up the bed this month. That should save me some time next spring. Below is the before and after.
The Nadina plants add some color to the yard.
