I saw this cute scarf on Pinterest,
and decided to try to make it myself.
You can see a great video tutorial on The DIY Dish.
You need to start with a T-shirt, size XL works good. Since my moto is "more is better" I'm going to use 2 T-shirts.
In two lovely shades of Pink!
Use a 9 inch paper plate, and cut out as many circle as you can get out of your shirt.
The hot pink one was a long sleeve, so I got a few more out of that one.
Now cut a spiral into each circle, all the way to the center.
Take each spiral, and stretch the pieces out. This will allow the edges to roll a bit, so it will hide any minor imperfections in your cutting. When you get all the pieces spiral cut, you will need to glue the ends of two of them together with fabric glue. Do that to all the pieces, except one.
Use that last piece (I used one of each color) and tie all the pieces together. Now you have a scarf!
Now, my A.D.D. kicked in, so I didn't have the patience to make a flower, but how cute would that look? Can you tell Tay wasn't thrilled to pose for me?
I have a business trip to Anchorage on Thursday, and I am super excited to go shopping.
I took a few pictures on my cell phone of our grocery store today. Let me share, and you'll know why I'm so excited to go shopping!
This is the produce department.
And this is the meat department.
The refrigerators are empty because of the storm we just had. They bring things over on the ferry every two weeks, and the ferry was cancelled on Sunday because of the big seas. The next one will be tomorrow. So...a shopping I will go in Anchorage. I need to check out the local scrapbook stores, if there are any.
Have a good week!
