Today I received just the boost I needed to start on some projects.  Sherry over at Young House Love announced the Pinterest Challenge Fall Edition.   

I had no idea where I would start since I've pinned so many things on my boards.  I decided to start with one that was easy and free.  How can you beat those two in the same sentence?

I've started seeing these DIY scarves and have recently pinned several.  I knew I had some old shirts laying around that I didn't wear anymore.  The idea is to take an old shirt and remix it into a scarf.  Sweet!  Here are some of my inspiration pins.

Looks easy enough right?  So let's get 'er done!

Start with a t-shirt.

Cut the bottom hem off and also right under the arms.

Cut the mid section into strips.

Pull the strips.  They will curl up on the edges.

I saved a piece of the bottom hem.  I wrapped it around one of the ends and secured with a few stitches.

Not bad for free.  I do recomment using a shirt with no side seams though.  You can see my seams at the bottom.  The top seams are covered by the bottom hem.  I'll do this next time around.  I've got plenty of shirts that may fall victim.

Do you have some shirts you can remix?
