An ironing fail & 4 t-shirt scarf tutorials

Let me tell you a little story

You know that dreaded feeling when you know you’ve ruined something, but you just don’t want to look? Oh, but I looked. While ironing my beloved pink shirt on vacation a couple summers ago, I ironed (or burned) a hole into it.Ironing Fail!

Let’s just say I wasn’t happy. I loved that shirt and then it tragically met that awful iron and it’s doom. Thankfully this story ends well, because I was able to find the exact same shirt at Target not long after. And it was on clearance too! Score!


You might be thinking “what does this story have to do with a DIY project?”. Well it has everything to do with that burnt pink shirt and the scarf I made out of it. Keep reading!
