Patchwork Scarf Craft Made From Recyled T-Shirts

Updated on March 10, 2013

Graphic T-Shirts Turned Into Patchwork Scarfs

Recycled t-shirt patchwork scarfs are made from old graphic t-shirts that have no longer any use as a shirt.

The shirts are cut in strips to show off the design of the shirt and sewn together. Soft shirts with durable material is best used for this t-shirt project for optimal comfort.

I have done a few crafts with used t-shirts before but when I saw this Patchwork Scarf made from graphic t-shirts I knew I found a new up-cycle t-shirt project.

While my patchwork t-shirt scarf is not completed yet, this lens is about how to make a scarf out of shirts and show you where you may find one already made.

      Some time ago, I used patchwork to turn 'household material scraps' (some from thrift shops, some from worn-out favourite things) to make some snug mini-quilts for our pets. Much more decorative than regular pet-mats, and our pets love them. One of our pets sleeping happily on one of these up-cycled mats - definitely an up-cycle up moment!
