Two Quick Accessories


Lately I’ve been feeling that my wardrobe is kinda blah. I wanted to update it with some accessories. Inspiration found here

First off, I made a t-shirt scarf with my huge XL t-shirt. I’m happy one of my misfit projects could find a home.

This is what I started with:


 It's huge! I needed to show you how huge:


 That's my shirt on top of it. I'm no extra small, either!


 So this how I made my t shirt scarf. First I measured 1 inch-ish lines across the whole thing. I know I needed the lines because I can't sew, cut, draw, swim or drive straight. As you can see, my lines weren't always straight anyways. At least I tried.


I cut straight across both layers of the shirt so I ended up with loops of fabric. Next I gently stretched out the loops. It was then I was grateful my shirt was already large and stretchy. You can kind of see the white logo on the shirt in these photos.

This is how it turned out:


 I cut one loop and tied it around them all. 


 This is how it looks twisted


This is how it looks on =)


I didn't stop there! Next I made a simple brooch. I've been reading Yellow Blackbird for a while. She has some fun challenges for fashion. Aubree challenged us to wear a brooch this week. I don't own one, so I decided to make one.

Materials: Two scrapbook flowers, one clip on name tag


First, tear off that clip!


Next, glue the stacked flowers together:


Glue the clip to the back of the stacked flowers:


Tada! 

(ok, this is the same picture as above, don't hate!)

This is how it looks worn:


What accessories have you made?
