DIY T-shirt Scarf

It’s getting colder and I’m unhappy about it. In lovely Pennsylvania, it stays cold from about Sep-Mar, give or take a month. That means you have to layer up if you want to be comfortable.

Personally, I like scarves and probably have too many of them. But they’re great for fall and winter weather so I stock up. Recently, I started make some of my own. However, I’m not a big fan of sewing, as most of you know, so I like the no-sew method.

Want to make one? It’s SUPER easy. Keep reading.

T-shirt scarf supplies

  • scissors
  • soft t-shirt

Use an old t-shirt or check out Goodwill for cheap options. I recommend size Larger or bigger. I chose Large for this one. You should also consider a neutral color so that scarf matches more of your clothing. White, black, brown, gray and beige are all good options.



Step 1: flatten your tshirt

Lay the tshirt flat on a table or flat surface.

Don’t worry about ironing. The scarf looks better without it.

Step 2: cut out the bottom of the shirt

Cut across the shirt right below the arms.

Then, cut off the bottom section of the shirt above the hem.

Now, you’ll have a scarf that’s ready to wear! I like to keep the sewn sections at the back of my neck and bottom of the scarf.

There’s also an option to make two of these t-shirt scarves and link them together for  nice infinity scarf, but that’s a tutorial for another day.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave them in the comments.

Happy crafting!
