DIY Braided T-Shirt Scarf – Scarf Week Day 1

I’ve been having a blast from Scarf ideas. I love scarves, you know?. You wouldn’t believe how many I have and you can add these 5 new ones you will be seeing in the next days LOL. I saw this cool scarf idea over at Put up Your Dukes and I LOVED it with all my heart and I knew I had just the T-Shirts to make it buried in my closet haha!!!


I’m so happy to be part of the 2nd annual Scarf week which I must say it’s been so much fun! Just to give you a hint, I even learned to crochet for this challenge LOL. So you will find so many awesome ideas to inspire you and many of these are so easy to make, you don’t need to be a crafter to make it but for others, if I could learn, I’m sure you can too!


For the scarf week Day 1, we and to make a scarf using {duh} T-shit, so here is how I made mine. It’s more like a cowl than a scarf since I’m size S, the scarf is right the size to fit my head and give a nice touch around my neck to what I’m wearing.

What you need:

  • 2 old T-shirts {preferably in different colors}
  • Thread and needle {sewing machine optional}


I measured my available usable t-shirt fabric and it turned out I had just the enough fabric by cutting right under the arm whole and the bottom hem.

Cut in a straight line both.


You will get this:


The cut the seam on one side to have 2 long strips of fabric
