Not much luck refashioning garments,so I thought I'd try my hand at some simple accessories. I really liked some of the things people were making with old t-shirts. This one looked really simple, so I gave it a try: http://rufflesandstuff.blogspot.com/2009/08/super-easy-t-shirt-scarf.html
I started with two t-shirts (I didn't use the white one)
Then I cut them into 4" squares. Pinned them together, corner to corner, and sewed a straight line down the center.
