I got the XL Men’s tee from a discount store for just $2. The scarf was inspired by the Knotted Loop Scarf by Country Road. It costs 69.95AUD! (-_-x)
1 XL tee
A pair of scissors
Sewing tools (either a sewing machine for a quickie or needle and thread if you want to do hand sewing!)
Step 1: Cut
Cut your tee according to the picture. A and B should be about the same width and C is from the sleeves.
One tee will yield 2 As, 2 Bs (the second one is underneath), 2 Cs and 1 D.
Step 2: Fold and sew
Get A and open it up. There should be an open side where the C/the sleeves were cut off.
Fold A into half, lengthwise, with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other, such that the open sides meet at the dotted line.
Sew along the dotted line.
Open A up and you should get a rectangular piece of fabric. Do the same as above for the other piece of A.
Step 3: Sew
Put the 2 pieces of A together, with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other and so that the ====, ++++ and .... are in line with each other.
Sew along the ==== lines together and then open the piece up.
Step 4: Fold and sew
Fold the piece lengthwise such the ++++ side meets with the …. side with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other. The picture shows only one piece of A. The other one is out of the frame. The 2 pieces of A form a very long piece of fabric.
Sew ++++ and …. sides together.
Step 5: Turn inside out
Turn this long piece of 2 As inside out and you will get a long tube of fabric with all the clean seams on the outside.
Step 6: Cut
Get C and cut the seams so that it opens up as shown in the picture.
Step 7: Sew
Get one C and one B. Line the sides ==== and ++++ together, with the RIGHT side of the fabric facing each other. Sew ==== and ++++ together.
Do the same for the other B and C.
