T-shirt Scarves: The Art of Repurposing

Scarves repurposed from T-shirts. It’s nothing new. It’s been done. In about a zillion ways. But I believe that the best design for T-shirt scarves has everything to do with not just the graphics, but the cropping of them. I wear scarves, a lot, as where we live, near the Northern California Pacific Coast, it gets very cold in the evenings while watching kid’s outdoor sports as the fog bank hits around 6pm year ’round. T-shirts are such perfect material as they are so soft and flexible. So, here’s my quick and easy, no pins, minimal ironing T-shirt scarf project.

I began by digging through the Goodwill racks today in search of some yummy graphics.

I picked up several light-weight T’s from the Junior and Ladies sections and some heavyweight graphic T’s from the Mens and Boys sections. I did a quick-cycle launder on the shirts before cutting up.I created a patchwork template from a standard No. 10 business envelope. Making a window template helps you isolate the section of graphics that works best. I prefer cropping tight on graphics. Some T-shirts yielded two to three sections of graphics, while others only one good envelope sized section. Using a white colored pencil on dark shirts and brown pencil on light, I traced out the rectangles and cut out the pieces. I used 20-21 sections for the fronts of my scarves.

After each section was cut, I laid them out in the best visual order then simply sewed one to another, 1/4″ seam allowances to the back. Once all were sewn together, I pressed the seams flat. I then created the back side of the scarves by cutting solid sections of the remaining T-shirt fabric. For my lightweight scarf, I again used the envelope for a template and made one more section than the front and sewed the horizontal seams askew from one side to the other, not intending for the seams to line up. For my heavyweight scarf, I used longer blocks of fabric.

I seamed back sections together, then stitched front scarf sections to back sections, leaving an opening for turning right side out. I trimmed away excess selvage and cut angles along each corner. I turned the scarves and stitched the openings closed. I pressed the finished pieces, using parchment paper when ironing over silk-screened sections.

Finished lightweight scarf.

Finished heavyweight scarf.For added interest, I cut out a smaller graphic section and stitched it to the back of the heavyweight scarf.

If you want to make a unique graphic scarf like these, watch for thrift store sales that offer $1 shirts, as the cost can add up pretty fast with this many shirts. Dig through the closets in your house for shirts no one really wears anymore. And, just like those T-shirt quilts, scarves make nice gifts using the personal T-shirts of someone special. In fact, while I was making these, my kids brought me rarely-worn shirts from their own closets to include in my new neckwear.

  2. #3 - Arielle says:

    So incredibly cute, Cathe! Thanks for the great tutorial! What an awesome way to recycle tees! Your finished products look like something you’d pay an arm and a leg for in a trendy store. Great work!

  3. #4 - Aida says:

    Oh, what fun! this will be great project for me to do with my teens this summer – I pomised to teach them how to sew!

    As always, thanks for sharing!

    I absolutely Love that idea !
    I have saved some of my kids T’s because I loved the shirt and/or loved my kids in that shirt, I had always intended to make them into a quilt or include them in a quilt. This project is so much easier and more immediate. Thanks

  7. #7 - Louise Fortune says:

    Just noticed my blog link is incorrect, have amended it now – Thanks

  8. #8 - Michelle L. says:

    These are wonderful! I love how you used the best art from so many shirts – brilliant, and very affordable when you hit the thrift sales. Thanks, Cathe, looks like so much fun and so beautiful!

  9. #9 - Lynnae says:

    This is so awesome. I’ve got to hit the thrift store while there is still winter left to wear the scarf. Also this would be a great idea for all the flag shirt tees I’ve saved over the years.

    I’m quite sure I could never find such cool and colorful T-shirts here in Denmark, but… I’ll give it a try.
    Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  13. #13 - Frieda says:

    Awesome project! I wish we had decent thrift stores in my neck of the woods. Sigh….

  19. #19 - Diane@InMyOwnStyle says:

    Hi Cathe-

    What a fabulous idea – projects like this are why I love you!! My daughters literally have a hundred t-shirts that don’t fit and they don’t want to part with – I will be making two – they are going love them.
    My best- Diane

  20. Cathe,

    Love this idea. We have so many old t-shirts in the office we have printed for clients over the years that we could make into scarves!


  21. #21 - Amy C says:

    That is freaking AWESOME!

  22. #22 - Rebekah says:

    Before Christmas I made a circle scarf using some of my daughters baby and toddler tops and dresses. It doesn’t have the same rockin’ vibe as yours — more sweetness and light — but it’s so soft and every time I wear it I remember how tiny she used to be. I really like how you used the patterns on one side and just the solids on the other.

  23. #23 - Trish says:

    love this scarf! thank you for the detailed instruction! and i love that you used a #10 envelope as template. will be linking, if you don’t mind? a trip to the thrift store is in order…

  24. #24 - Tania says:

    what a fantastic idea, I’m afraifd I never see such cool t-shirts at out thrift stores 😉

  25. #25 - foo says:

    OH yes. You did it again, Cathe. I love it. Too bad I wore my favorite 80s t-shirts until they wore right through.


  26. #26 - Bethany says:

    What a fantastic idea! Very vintage looking, but bright and fun!

  27. #27 - Marti says:

    Very pretty! Did you use a serger to join the pieces, or a regular sewing maching with a stretch stitch – or something else altogether?

    • #28 - Cathe Holden says:

      Hi Marty, to answer your question…none of the above. I’ve yet to master stretch material techniques, and for this pieced project it wasn’t at all necessary based on how it was configured and no need for stretching as it won’t get stretched. So, regular stitching on regular sewing machine without serging.

  28. #29 - Jill says:

    …always outside the box! Thanks again for sharing!

  29. #30 - june blasingame says:

    Wow! Loved these! What a fabulous idea…and even a way to preserve some of my little boy’s shirts that were his favorites….making them into a small quilt or pillow cover, etc. You really gave me some ideas to work with. Thanks for sharing!

  30. #31 - amy zimmer says:

    Freakin’ Amazing!

    It is your color choices that are so, so, so…AWESOME!

    Thanks for sharing!


  31. #32 - Sherry says:

    This nearly made me cry, Cathe! I am 54 yrs old, don’t wear printed T-shirts so well anymore BUT, I have a collection of “special” shirts from special places that date back to the 70’s! They take up a ton of space. I just have not been able to get rid of them. YOU gave me a new project and a huge space in the closet! You never cease to amaze me! Thank you! Also, I got to sit down with my new Country Living and enjoyed seeing your article.

  32. #33 - Berta says:

    Wow, a great use for old Tee’s!!! Thanks for sharing!

  33. #34 - Aurora says:

    Love it!! I think it would be great to repurpose my kids old t shirts this way, too!!

  34. #35 - Juliet A says:

    This is pretty awesome – I might have to give it a try! My son has a lot of Harley Davidson tshirts that would really look awesome put together into a scarf!

  35. #36 - Bunny says:

    I love this. I made my boys quilts out of their old athletic team tees for high school graduation, so I can hardly believe I never thought of this. I have a question though: Did you cut all your pieces in a single orientation with regard to the jersey’s grain? Not sure it would make a difference, and it looks like some of your “crops” might be wonky. Just wondering….

    • #37 - Cathe Holden says:

      Hi Bunny, No, though I thought about it, I did not worry about grain when cutting as the pieces were small and with all sewn together and then again to a backing piece, there’s really no significant stretching going on with these scarves so it didn’t matter on these. Thanks for asking!!

  36. #38 - Kate says:

    THANK YOU so much for the great idea! I’ve been hanging on to scraps of a million old band t-shirts. Had plans of someday making a quilt, but I always get overwhelmed just thinking of making one! This is a great way to up-cycle my stack o’ band scraps! Thanks again!

  37. #39 - Melodee says:

    What a fantastic idea. Thank you, Cathe! The PD has a ton of unsold t-shirts. I wonder if they’d give ’em to me? :o)

    I stumbled onto this website and I find this idea A…wait for it…MAZING! I have some printed shirts that didn’t quite come out right. I think I’ll make myself a scarf out of those shirts so I can remember, during this winter season, to learn from my mistakes and then make them into something trendsetting.

  53. #54 - Tammy Sprinkle says:

    What a great idea! I love that you can add personal tshirts, as well. How fun for all ages!

  54. #55 - Stephanie says:

    I just love it! I never wear printed T’s but seem to accumulate them anyway… this is the perfect solution!

  55. #56 - Marissa says:

    Seriously?? How do you come up with such amazingly cool projects?!?!? These scarves are the most creative and wearable DIY apparel project I’ve ever seen. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Ghana, and the women used to make cloth out of stitched-up remnants of colorful fabric. This reminds me of that, but in a far more intentional, wearable way. Thank you for sharing your creativity so freely! I hope you start selling these. I would pay a lot of money for one.

  56. #57 - alison says:

    These are GENIUS! LOVE them!
    You should sell them…. I would most definitely buy one!
    Thanks for sharing.

  57. #58 - Kathy says:

    Love this idea…my oldest is away at college for the first time (sniff, sniff) and left behind lots of tees that don’t fit, but just can’t part with.
    Question…can this project be done without a sewing machine? Other than the occasional button, I’ve never sewn a single stitch! Please tell me you have an idea for us non-sewers! 🙂

  58. #59 - Patty C says:

    These scarves are the greatest. What a wonderful way to use children’s t-shirts they’ve outgrown, as well as re-purposed t-shirts from the second hand store. Thank you!!

  59. #61 - marysworkshop says:

    Your project turned out amazing again! Love how you assembled the colors and graphics in such a wonderful pattern.

  60. #62 - Cindy says:

    Thanks for the great tutorial. I’m a visual person, and am especially appreciative for all the pictures! The envelope size template makes the graphic sections cut from it, much more interesting than using the entire printed part. I really love this scarf!

  61. #63 - Kaylen says:

    This is a wonderful idea! My kids are younger and grow out of their clothes fast. Sometimes they don’t want to give up their favorite shirts. I think they’d LOVE it if I made them scarves like this.

Non-crafters really don’t get it and being the grand-daughter of a strong woman who lived through the depression I just can’t throw away the good stuff – (“one person’s junk is another person’s treasure” comes to mind). Thanks for the encouragement – and now I have to go organize and categorize… then CREATE!

    Cathe, thanks for a great tutorial. My daughter saw this and begged me to make her one and I finally got around to it today. It was fun and very quick. Being a quilter, I had a rotary cutter and mat, which made the cutting easy. I kept the same widths but varied the heighths of the logos so I wouldn’t chop them up. I used old concert and musical tshirts from my husband’s and my old high school days, so it was very retro. She loves it!

    This patchwork scarf project really impressed me. Also i think T’s can be comfy and soft around the neck. The graphics on the shirts chosen can be selected to “say” certain things and have a gimmick (like horsey pictures and words for a cowgirl friend). Thank you so much for continuing to inspire.

    • #115 - Cathe Holden says:

      No. In fact I think that would make the scarves less comfortable. I still wear these all the time and wash after wash they just get better. No issues with fabrics pulling in wrong directions against eachother. I think the real key is using like weight shirts.

    Love this scarf. Just for clarification, the template you made from the envelope shows how the finish would be so you mark and cut on the outer rectangle to allow for your seams?

    I just finished cutting out the shirts. I’m thrilled to be able to wear these in a new way! Your tutorial stands out more than the others in that you suggested to close crop and use a template. I made one with an old file folder. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you so much for this tutorial! I kept some of my mother’s cute blouses, and I’m going to make a couple of scarves for my daughter and niece in her memory. This is terrific!

    Can you tell me how long the finished scarf is and how thick is your window template?
