Infinity Textured Plaid Scarf DIY

I never would have thought I'd be much of a scarf girl. But this fall is proving that to be oh so wrong. So cheers to the first DIY scarf of the season. Expect a lot more to come your way. 
Gather: Large plaid button up (I found mine in the Men's section at a local thrift store), bleach, spray bottle, sewing machine, scissors.

1. Begin by laying out the shirt flat on the ground.
2-3.Then, cut off the bottom of the shirt, making one long strip. Mine was about ten inches wide. Next, sew the two ends together, making an infinity scarf. I only sewed the ends together because I wanted the rest of the hem to fray, but if you want a cleaner look, try hemming a lining on the back.
4. Lastly (not pictured), lay your scarf flat in an area that you won't mind getting bleach on (I chose the bathtub) and with a spray bottle, spray splotches of bleach in various places on the scarf. Wait 20 minutes, flip the scarf over and repeat on the next side. Once both sides have completely dried, hand wash and air dry your scarf.

    I'm afraid I can't do this well, I'm not good at handwork.
