  • Scissors
  • Old or new t shirt





  1. Fold your t shirt in half and cut all the way across under the arms.
  2. Unfold the t shirt and begin cutting strips approximately ½ to ¾ of the way up starting at the cut end.
  3. Give each strand a tug to make it curl up.
  4. Twist and fold the t shirt in half to double it up and gather the fringes together.
  5. Wear it with a solid shirt for interest and a pop of color.

Great idea but not so great video. Because of the dark t-shirt and the dark shadows, I could barely see it. Next time use a lighter shade of shirt and try to eliminate the shadows.

Absolutely great. I so much admire the ingenuity of such clever people. Keep up the great work. With admiration from "downunder".

Love this! It is so attractive and funky and easy to make. I have an enormous collection of old tees. Thanks for the video, Latrice.

I made one for myself and my teen daughter immediately wanted one of her own. I also bought some large wood beads to add to the fringe on both scarves.
