Upcycled T Scarves.

I spent a couple of hours in front of the motor racing last week and tied all those strips into scarves. I reckon I could do these with my eyes closed.

Here is one in Pewter and Silver. The Pewter T shirt is one of my niece's cast offs. She always drives past my place on her way to the op shop bin to see if there is anything that I want. Goodness knows what the neighbours think when I go through the garbage bags in her boot. The silver fabric came from a long skirt I'd made myself years ago to go to a ball. Over the years it has been shortened to every length. Now its a scarf.

This one is Reds, Pinks and Oranges. one of my current favourite combinations. I also made a multi -coloured one and a purple/green/blue combo but the photos turned out particularly badly. Yes, even according to my low standards. I'll go and take some better photos and then I' might even list in my etsy store.

I'm sorry did that just read, pink red and oranges where your favourite colour must be missing all that pinkness from across the way.
I do like these very much are they soft?
Might have to pop over to your etsy site and see if you really did put them on there.
Lovely up cycling.

That pewter skirt is now *really* short but I love the idea!
