A Funky Upcycle!

I just LOVE when kids are dressed in funky, colorful, unique clothes!  Of course, I think I am the only one in this particular suburban community who feels that way, so sometimes my kids stand out.  Is that bad?  I hope not!  So, I have been thinking that my 7 year old needs some arm warmers (fingerless gloves), and I was thinking they should be stripy.  Oh, also, cheap and easy.  And, as long as I was going to make arm warmers, I figured I should make a hat and a braided knit scarf/necklace, too.

I headed to my local thrift store in search of a stripy long sleeve t-shirt, and this is what I found:
Perfect!  You should have seen how excited I was!  Here's the finished product:

Plus, there was enough of the shirt leftover to make a bolero!

Look for the tutorial on Tuesday!
