Today's Projects= Recycled Tye Dye!

Todays goal was to not leave the house, but make numerous items.  That turned out pretty easy once I realized it was time to RECYCLE!

Now who doesn't have an old T-shirt or two laying around the house? I know I have a million!  So I started hunting through the bunch.

Flower Power Necklace

 I found the prefect old t-shirt laying in a pile. Lately I have been on a tye-dye kick , well maybe it's not a kick? More like an all the time thing! It happens when you're friends with the owners of Manitoba District!. They keep me in stock of tons of colorful Tye-Dyes for year-round lol! But I never have anything I like that matches accessory wise. Minus my millions of hemp necklaces, but every now and then everyone needs a little switch up.
T-shirt Infinity Scarf - Tye Dye Style

        That being said, I have some rather rough  looking tye dyes that I made with a few kids a while back. They were a bit on the lame side with not much of a pattern to them. (This is why I gave up Tye-dye and let the pros do it at Manitoba! ) Anyways! Since they weren't being worn I figured why not make them the perfect Accessory to my new favorite tye dyes? Take a peak at my new creations! :) I will gladly make more upon request just let me know if you want a specific color!

  I also wanted to mention I got the idea while browsing around some awesome craft blogs. I had seen it on numerous pages so I'm not sure who to give the first credit to. However, I started making the Infinity Scarf from a tutorial I found on : Kojo Designs

But it was linked to this awesome page I found full of home made Christmas ideas! Click here to check it out on The Happy Housewife's list of 100 great home made gifts.

 Sadly, all my tye-dyes are in the wash due to adventure to the farm last weekend. So I had to suffice wit my favorite black tee. Now I'm wondering if I can get away with my tye-dye accents at my "all black" uniform photography job. Guess I will have to see Sunday when I go to work ;)

Thanks for checking it out! Feel free to let me know if you would like me to make one for you.

Happy Crafting.
