I made these scarves out of tee shirts; really easy and turned out cute. Just cut the bottom part of a cotton tee shirt into strips and stretch them out so that the fabric rolls and makes little tube-like rolls. Check out the pictures. My daughter wears hers all the time and looks very cute and stylish.
With the scarf shown I cut the tubular rings and braided each side at the top then knotted the sides for decoration. I also added a silver chain as an embellishment. It is more like a scarf/necklace.
