Lately I have really been into fashion. Shocker right? But no, really. I bounce back and forth between home decor/home remodeling to fashion & purses... maybe shoes too :). I exhaust all outlets like pinterest, polyvore, blogs and flickr on one subject for about a week then switch to the other. Never ending, back and forth, back and forth. Am I alone in this quirk? One week my coffee table is covered in Vogue, Lucky and Elle. Then the next I clear it to cover it again with Country Living, Elle Decor and House Beautiful. This is a fashion week. This tutorial may look familiar because it is basically the same as my DIY Anthropologie Peony Pop Infinity Scarf. Just with less steps. I simplified it even more while on one of my late night DIY kicks. You know, where you just gotta make something. Here is what I have been craving, fashion-wise.
Black and white has kinda been my thing lately. Guess it is because I scored a few new shades of red lipstick. Nothing makes red lipstick look better than a black leather jacket and white scarf :)
So here is my DIY. Check out the tips and tricks below.
Supplies: 2 Men's white tees, scissors, sharpie, cardboard/magazine and string/yarn. Tips & Tricks: *Slip a magazine or piece of cardboard in between the layers of the tee when coloring. You want to prevent bleed through. *Look up a few tribal or Navajo prints to get a feel for some groovy patterns. Then just sketch away. I only filled up half of the loop because I wanted the scarf to be free of print up around where to two loops are gathered together. *Once the pattern is to your liking, fold the shirt loops in half lengthwise, gather up a 2 to 4 inch section and wrap with the string or yarn. Put it on and play with how the loops lay before securing. * My tees were still white, but if yours look dingy I recommend choosing a RIT dye color and doing a wash or two. A bottle only costs a dollar or two and the grocery/craft store. * Spot cleaning is best, but the marker is permanent so you can throw it in the washer if needed.
