Sunday Art Therapy #18

Happy New Year!!!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  I had a great time with friends and family and even got some crafting in.  Here are some fabulous infinity scarves that I made:

I apologize for not getting a picture of them being worn.

I saw this idea on TLC when they did a special on homemade Christmas gifts.  These scarves were made from 100% acrylic sweaters that I found at Goodwill.  (I made sure that I bought the ones that still had tags on them).  I also upcycled one of my own acrylic sweaters that was already destined for Goodwill.

Here's the simple how-to:

1.  Make sure your sweaters are 100% acrylic so that they do not ravel.  Any time of wool, cotten, or other natural fibers will need to be hemmed.

2.  Decide how wide you want your scarves to be.  I cut these 5 inches wide.  The length of your scarves will depend on the size of your sweater.  Try to get some extra large or big & tall sweaters for longer scarves.

3.  Use a rotary cutter and a large ruler and cut away.

This was a great no-sew project and was a huge hit at my family Christmas.

Can't wait to see what you've created!!  The link party will be open through Saturday, so link away!!

This linky list is now closed.
