Some days you just feel like ripping something up! So we decided to rip up some t-shirts! best way to make t-shirt cowls is to rip up some t-shirts! After ripping and pulling the strings, add a bit of decoration and there you have a great cowl.

These not only use an upcycled t-shirt but some quilt square scraps, so double re-use!

We made several out of upcycled youth sized shirts and they turned out to work great as headbands too! Dual purpose, can't beat that!

Kristina took a couple and made a braid out of a few strands and sprinkled in wooden beads. Decorative and can double as a nursing necklace.

Of course, we had to do some tie dye....I mean really, play with shirts and not cut up one that we have dyed first? 

We added some beads and a button to decorate this one and give it some bling! 

We tried a second style, just ripping up to make a fringe but leaving the bulk of the shirt for a thicker, warmer cowl. I love the wild and funky look!

Hope you have the chance to rip something up today! Enjoy and thanks for reading!!
