So I had this great pink t shirt. Fit great, great color, was WELL made and in typical Michelle fashion I washed it......WITH AN INK PEN!!!
Yes the lovely shirt had ink on the back of it. For a while I wore it under a shirt because the front was fine. Until that one day when I was sweating and I needed to take off the over shirt. I decided then and there that wearing it under something just was NOT going to work. Next step? To repurpose it. I thought about it for a couple of weeks. What did I want to do? How did I want to do it? etc...I decided that a scarf would best serve me. I wear scarves all the time (I am sort of like a Cullen in that fashion) and the pink color would be perfect to wear with a black or brown t shirt.
I first made the shirt as flat as I could on the table and then cut off the hem. The next step was to cut the mid section just under the armpit area. That left me a tube and from this tube I just 1/2 (ish I don't measure) strips.
When I cut strips out of the entire tube I put all the strips together and pulled as hard as I could to stretch out the strips. The t shirt had two side seams so I would have to deal with them. On one seam I made a band out of the t shirt remnants. I tied the strip around the seam, wrapped it and then tied again. I tried to hide my tying inside the bulk of the strips.
In the end, all that was left was this pile of scraps. I do intend to make a couple of flowers out of this stuff.
