T-shirt (long or short sleeved)
Fabric Marker (optional)
Needle & thread
Step 1: Lay the tshirt flat. Cut up the center of the front only cutting through the top layer.
Step 2: Measure 3″ in from the center line you just cut, 2″ down from the bottom of the arm sleeve and 1″ in from the center line at the bottom hem. Connect from the markings to create lines as shown below.
Repeat measurements and markings on the other side.
Step 6: Turn the tshirt back over to the front. Draw a diagonal line from the edge of the neckline to the center or middle about where the back hemline has been cut. See picture below.
Repeat the opposite side. Cut along the line and around the back of the neckline hem. The basic shape of the shrug has now been created!
Step 7: Embellish!!! Using the extra tshirt fabric that was cut away, embellish the shrug by creating rosettes, layered flowers, etc. Handstitch onto the shrug in any pattern/design/quantity you like!
Slip it on your little cutie, tie it on the front and wear it out! (this design can easily be made in any size! Just increase the length of the measurement under the arm from step 2 as needed)
and if there are any scraps left over, why not create a matching hair accessory?
