T-Shirt Scarf

Yesterday I cleaned out my closet.  Getting rid of all those unused clothes that aren't the right size or had holes in them.  I had a few shirts in there that had some holes in the bottom of them and instead of giving them to my husband for rags in the garage I wanted to make something with them.  My niece really wanted a scarf so she could be just like her mom so I thought this would be the perfect thing.  I did some searching and came up with the perfect scarf for her,  over at Simply Salvage .  



I forgot to take a picture of them so my sister in-law was happy to take one for me. 

This project was to easy and took me about 20 minutes for each scarf.  




I used a smaller plate than they did in the simply salvage tutorial because I was making this for a child.  So simple just cut out the shirt using the plate as a template.  



Then I cut each circle like this and pulled them apart.  Once they were all pulled apart I cut out a piece of fabric to tie them in the back. 


I made a cute felt flower to add to the scarf as well. 



Here is a question for all of you.  I have a ton of jeans from myself and my boys that have holes throughout and don't know what to do with them.  Do you guys have any suggestions?  I hate to just throw them away.

Make a denim quilt with the jeans. It would be nice and warm. Great for camping.
