Making scarves from T shirts?

My daughter in law Amy hit it big time at Goodwill.

First she bought a T shirt to make Kylie's scarf. (thanks to Kim and Kris)
Really, isn't it amazing that a beautiful scarf can be made from a T shirt??


And that's not all. Kylie and Macie are both wearing tops she found for $2-$3. each. 
Laurynn didn't want to pose for the camera so Kylie's holding up hers. 


And even these 2 dresses, and a pink princess top for Miss Téa girl.

No new threads for Buddy boy, but he did want to show off his light switch skills.

No sewing involved!



All I can say is the girls are in New York right now.
More about this latest adventure, to come.

I have fallen in love with those scarves....I have made 5 already and plan to make more. Everywhere I go people ask where I got them....

I agree that it's fun to shop at Thrift Stores. We have several near us and I almost always find something that I like. The only problem is that wherever I go, my husband, Dick, goes too. That's because I really don't like to drive anymore. He is okay in the store for about ten minutes, then he starts to get antsy. It isn't just the thrift stores, it's any store. I don't know what happened, he used to not mind going shopping for clothes in the department stores but he doesn't like to do that anymore either. I also have to admit that I don't care as much for shopping as I used to.

I do think those scarves are really attractive. I don't make much of anything anymore. I used to do a lot of sewing, but not so much now. The scarves are a great idea though. I really like the red one.

LOVE the scarves! And I'll go to the tutorial after I leave here.
I like the flower too, it looks more like jewelry than clothing!

And I love thrift shopping! You can really find some amazing bargains.

Thanks for sharing this, Jill.
Love to you,
Eileen

PS ~ I loved how Tea was hanging onto her sister! And "Buddy Boy" is just as cute. (I call Jayden 'Buddy Boy' a lot too!)

I too am a thrift shopper !! I have clothed Hill on her mission from the Amvets !! I have not been able to pick clothes for her since she was 8 or 9 !! But one of the little tender mercies I have enjoyed during her mission is I have found a store that gets new stylish clothes in regularly and she has loved everything !! And they still have the tags a lot of the time !! And I have never spent very much per item wither !!! So Hill has now been converted to thrift shopping too !! lol What a blessing !!

How very creative!! My mom had recorded when Kim & Kris were on Nate Berkus's show several months ago and I FINALLY got to watch it last week. They are so creative. I was so impressed with their talent.
