Another T-shirt Scarf

_MG_2259.jpgI've been wanting to make this scarf forever. I have stash of t-shirts waiting to be cut up. Kel and I got together last week to work on some Christmas gifts. (If you get a gift from Kel this year it's going to be awesome. I know because I've seen it. :) ) Anyways, she had some shirts laying around too, so as we chatted I started cutting. Isnt' it cute? I think it might be may favorite so far.
_MG_2283.jpgI picked this shirt up at the store for $2. The larger the better, but I don't think it really matters.  Here's how it goes. 
_MG_2284.jpgGrab a large paper plate. You can leave the t-shirt as is and place the plate on the shirt. Trace as many circles as will fit on the shirt. 
_MG_2286.jpgCut out the circles. With this shirt I ended up with three circles.
_MG_2287.jpgThere was a total of six circles when you include the back as well.
_MG_2293.jpgNow start from the edge of the circle and cut out one big spiral.
_MG_2288.jpgAfter you cut the spiral stretch it out and the edges will begin to curl. Place all six pieces together and tie a knot in middle to keep the pieces all together.

So cute...and it doesn't even require sewing. I could actually make one of these.

Ikea? Trying not to be jealous.

Your scarf is adorable, and Kel's hair is freaking cute. I'm not sure I can handle all this awesomeness.
