turn something old into something new.
*** NEW BLOG: Timberwolf . head on over once you've finished here. thank you! ***
grab a shirt/skirt/whatever that's ruined or old that you just can't part with. we're going to turn it into a really cute headscarf.
the shirt i used was missing too many buttons, so it wasn't wearable any more. so i saved it from my friend's trash can, and now i have an adorable headscarf.
|so here is the before-mentioned shirt... i still have most of the material since i only used the bottom edge.|
|measure three inches from the bottom hem, and mark a few dots to guide your cutting.|
|cut off the bottom 3 inches of the shirt. you'll now have a long strip of fabric with the shirt's hem and a raw edge. clean it up by hemming it.|
|before you sew the hem, pin the edge to hold it in place.|
|sew the hem. it's easy. just a straight line.|
