Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas - 2 No-Sew Scarves from T-shirts

Okay, it can't get any easier than this for the gals on your gift list. These two very different scarves from two different sites are part of our series (9/21-12/24) of handmade Christmas gift ideas. They will send you to your old-clothes pile, to thrift stores, and t-shirt sales.

Neither one requires any sewing or gluing.

The first one, a circular treat, is from Erica at PSIMadeThis, at this link. Erica's post is so simple and uncomplicated that there are no words except for the photo captions. She calls this circular wonder a summer scarf but it can easily warm a neck in the winter as well.

The second one, a curly lengthy beauty, is from Cheryl at TidyMom, at this link. This one uses an XL tee. The photo tutorial is well detailed. Be sure to read ALL the instructions to learn how to cut, stretch, and use the pieces. This is so cute and so useful as well.

I found both of these in a post by Kristl at BudgetDiet when I did an online search.

For other projects in my series, just look along the right sidebar for the label "Christmas Gift Projects." I hope to post only tips that do not require knitting, crocheting, machine sewing, tatting, embroidery, or any other skilled technique.

If you are feeling too crushed for time to make your own gifts this season, check my Etsy shop for items for your gift list.

And they are so nice and long and would flip around the neck well, too, so they make great winter gifts. Thanks for posting it.
