DIY – Infinity scarf


Do you want an infinity scarf like Megan Markle? Today’s DIY is easy, quick and won’t cost you a single cent. Gather up some old t-shirts, grab your scissors, and let’s go.

All you need:

  • Old cotton t-shirts (the bigger the better!)
  • Scissors

Instructions

  1. Cut your shirt horizontally, below the sleeves and above the bottom hem.
  2. Put your hands inside the material  and pull outwards to stretch the shirt fabric. As you stretch, the ends where you cut will roll in on themselves.

If you want a thicker scarf then try this with an old jumper.

We hope you have fun with it!

Materials:

  • scuba/neoprene fabric around 0.5cm thick (1/4 of an inch)
  • craft paper
  • a pencil
  • super sharp scissors
  • pins
  • a sewing machine
  • matching needle and thread

 

How to:

1. Draw and cut out this pattern onto craft paper.Just sketch it onto paper and make sure the dimensions are the same. You may also want to modify it slightly for length by adding a few cm/inches to the wider part of the template at the bottom.Work out how many pattern pieces you need. They are 10cm (4 inches) wide at the top (the part that goes around your waist) so what you need to do is work out how many panels you need to go around your waist.

2. Cut your chosen number of rectables out of neoprene bigger than the template. Stack them together and pin the template on top.

3. Cut them out around the template. Make sure to match the template carefully!

4. Placing the wrong side together, pin two pieces of neoprene together.Pin the rest to the edges all the way around.

5. Sew all the edges together making sure to reinforce the beginning and end stitches.Sew the final panels together.

6. Voila!

Add some glam style to your step for summer! 

All you need: 

  • Sandals – I bought mine at The Gap
  • Strung shells or beads – I used these from JoAnn
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors

Step: 

  1. Measure your strung shells across the part of your sandals where you want to place them.Cut the string (mine were on a monofilament/plastic string) leaving an extra inch.
  2. Put a drop of hot glue at either end of your string of shells. This will keep them from sliding off.
  3. Put a line of hot glue across your sandals where you want to place your shells.
  4. Snip your threads on either end right where you put the drop of hot glue to finish the ends.
