A Maternity Shirt into a Scarf!

My daughter has been BEGGING me to buy her a scarf but I decided to make her one! And while cleaning out my closet, I found this old maternity shirt that I didn't even wear my last pregnancy... So why not turn it into her scarf?

The first thing I did was cut off the sleeves and then a piece from the front and cut them all equal width...

And then just sewed them end-to-end with right sides together. Because I used the shirt, one end of each piece was hemmed... so I made I had a hem on each end...

Next I just sewed it inside out (right sides together into a tube)...

Turn inside out and you have a scarf that your 6-year-old is THRILLED with!!!

And I still have a bunch of shirt left! Wonder what I will do with it!?! lol
