Wire T-Shirt Scarf

Hi!

For my luck, my husband didn't want this promo T-shirt he got in a Congress, so I snapped it right away..a new  T-shirt for me to play with, yahoo!! Besides, it has a beautiful navy colour!!
Another T-shirt scarf coming...but this time I wanted to give it a little twist..so I used some silver wire to make some rings to embellish it.

I love it!!

What I used:
1. Hubby despised T shirt
2. A glue stick (what for??? you will see!)
3. Cut Plier
4. Fabric Glue
5. Needle and Thread
6. Scissors
7. Silver Plated artisan wire 1.02 mm

Cut the shirt strips , 1 inch each
Now you have lots of strips
Stretch them as in here 
 
Now...to make the rings....glue stick! 
Wrap around...
I removed form the stick after some loops in order to make a knot, then put it back again to finish the loops




Remove  the loops from the glue stick
Another knot
Now to the fabric...get all the strips together
Cut the whole thing in half
Now we have 2 ends

Insert the perfectly round ( wink wink) rings
You can keep them separate in different points of the scarf or join them together, you can play around with them



To join the ends again, one by one with needle and thread


After all of them are tied together again, cut a small rectangle piece of fabric to finish off like below
If you stretch this piece of fabric  you will get a nice round edge


I used just a dab of glue this time, as the ones here, although I love them and use a lot, I think the back it is a bit bulky because I used way too much glue

This  time I nailed it!
Ready!





Isn't it nice? You can use tight to the neck as well..


 Or in one long loop
Me, the model, ah that neck...good thing is going to be hidden...age showing...sad times gals..:0(





PUURFECT for those not so cold days of fall here on the island when a warm neck warms the whole body!
Hope you enjoy!

This has many many possibilities, beads, wire, etc...up next I will use the left over for a bracelet with strips and beads! to come...:0)
