My try at making a braided scarf from t-shirts:

I started with two t-shirts size L that I didn't mind making into a scarf.

Here's what you see in the tutorial link:

 Cut each of the shirts from above the hem to just below the arm seam to create two tubes of fabric.

Cut the tubes in half then fold lengthwise and stitch closed with right sides together. 

Put your hand in each tube and pull out the fabric.  Braid the fabric tubes together.

Sew the ends shut from the inside.  Sounds weird but it isn't that complicated.

You have to hand sew the last few inches to close the seams, but that's simple.


Here's my finished scarf.  I think it's so cute!

Don't forget to go to the scarf tutorial link above.

The tutorial shows you in great detail how to cut,

 braid and stitch your t-shirts into a  beautiful, braided scarf.
