This week’s feature is coming to you from a very lovely high school buddy of mine: Dannie Sue. She posted a picture of her rockin’ scarf on Facebook and I BEGGED her to let me share it. Enjoy! 🙂
Dannie Sue says: “I went shopping recently and found a pair of orange, sling back peep toe heels I couldn’t resist. I had NO idea how I was going to wear these for work, as I have nothing orange-y or that goes with orange enough. I couldn’t sleep one night and decided to wear myself down by browsing Pinterest. I found a bunch of cool “t-shirt scarves” and discovered that people were MAKING them, not buying them.
A couple weekends ago, I played on a women’s team that won a softball tournament. We were awarded with orange shirts – but my size small frame was stuck with a 2XL. I decided that turning that shirt into a scarf would be MUCH better than “closet-space-filler-upper” like it typically would have been.
So, I got to getting. I followed the oh-so-easy-breezy, NO SEWING REQUIRED (which was a must for me… I’m not exactly “domesticated”…) instructions I found online and had a ball cutting the shirt into strips and stretching it until it cried “Uncle!” I had SO much fun and was incredibly happy with the results – I made another one with three other tournament t-shirts I never wore!
I think this project really awakened the “crafty” side to me. I can’t wait to make more and more and more and try different styles and.. AH! Whoever thought this tomboy with a girly side would turn crafty?!”
