DIY no-sew scarf

Filed in Recycling

If you’re not as crochet or knit savvy as some others, you’ll surely be in luck with this fun, DIY no-sew scarf tutorial. This quick and easy 10 minute DIY scarf is a fun and creative way to design something unique and you’ll most likely be able to complete this project in under 10 minutes! Believe it or not, you won’t be needing any sort of knitting or crochet needles for this yarn craft. And the best part about this no-sew, non-crochet, non-knit tutorial is that anyone can make it!

What you’ll need:

 What to do:

  1. Set your bar stools side by side and tape the end of your yarn to the stool, leaving a 2” yarn tail.
  2. Wrap the yarn all the way around the stool. I’ve found that using kitchen chairs or bar stools can make the perfect double (and possibly triple) infinity scarf.
  3. Wrap the material around the chairs to a thickness of your liking. To get the best out of your beautiful variegated baby yarn, you may have to wrap your yarn around a couple of times.
  4. Once you’ve determined the thickness of the scarf, carefully remove your scarf from the bar stools and lay it down on a flat surface. Make sure your two loose ends are in the same place (if not, cut one end so they match up).
  5. Cut a piece of yarn (roughly 4” long) and tie a double knot around the entire scarf, securing your two loose ends.
  6. Trim the yarn tails to approximately 1” each.
  7. Using a double knot, secure the remainder of your skein approximately 1” from the knot you just tied in order to secure the scarf.
  8. Wrap all loose ends. Finish your wrap by tying a double knot around the scarf. Wrapping approximately 2” at the ends will secure the whole scarf.
  9. Optional: For added embellishments, you can cut a tail at each end of the scarf approximately 3-4” long. Finger weave the yarn tail to avoid the material from being tangled.

I like to twist the scarf and then wrap it around my neck two or three times depending on how eclectic I’m feeling. This no-sew, non-knit project is probably one of the quickest crafts you can design. It also makes for the perfect going out accessory or gift. The variegated baby yarn will give you a pop of color that’ll brighten up your day. So with just 10 minutes of your time, why not squeeze in this fun way of designing your own scarf to your crafts to-do list?

How to make your own colored jeans

Filed in Recycling

This spring wearing pastel colored jeans is in fashion. Instead of buying a new pair of colored jeans, I am planning to make my own. I already own an old pair of white jeans and plan to color that to give it a new look. With a few easy instructions you can make your own trendy looking colored jeans at home.

What you need:

  • Rit dye
  • Pair of old white jeans
  • Bucket
  • Hot water

How to do it:

  1. I love pastel colors and have chosen lavender color for the same. Rit dye has around 500 colors to choose from so pick the one that you think is more of your taste.
  2. Soak the jeans in hot water in the bucket and let it get completely wet.
  3. Once it is soaked well, take two cups of water and add dye to it. Put this concentration in hot water and stir it well. Follow the instructions of the brand to know the amount of dye you put in to get the color you want.
  4. Move the jeans well in the water so that it absorbs the color thoroughly.
  5. Finally rinse the jean in your bath tub with warm water in the beginning and then rinse it in cooler water when your jean is not letting out color.
  6. Now hang the jean outside to air dry it and get the desired color for your jean.

You are all set to wear your colored jeans with a white top and elbow length shrug to look chic and stylish.
