My next project was to create a spin off of my favorite infinity scarf, I'm sure you've seen them, a long hoop of fabulous fabric you can wrap around your neck once, twice, or even three times.
My new scarf would be made using a recycled t-shirt from the local thrift store. I started with an extra large, white, 100% cotton t-shirt. The best use of the fabric was to cut it in to two pieces about 10 inches wide, by about 24 inches long. Not as long as I had hoped, but it works out in the end.
I sewed the two ends together, forming a loop. Washed and dried it to see if the sides would hold up without seams, and yes! It worked.
Next I dyed it. My favorite colors are earth tones, so I used the Khaki color Dharma Fiber Reactive dye.
This scarf is not as long I had hoped, but it can still be folded twice, as in the photo below. I like how the soft cotton folds nicely and isn't bulky.
Happy New Year!! I hope this finds everyone rested and ready to head into the New Year, clean slate, refreshed and optimistic. I ma...
