T-Shirt Infinity Scarf

I whipped up this scarf today in 30 minutes and am quite pleased with myself.
 I bought this t-shirt last spring, and although I haven't had it more than 6 months, I have worn it a LOT, and it shows.  There are some small stains, the neckline is irreparably stretched out, and it has shrunken to a shape shorter and boxier than it was when I bought it.  I was going to get rid of it, but I LOVE it - the stripes, the sequined embellishment, the soft fabric!  So I hacked it up to make an infinitey scarf.

First, I cut out the embellishment section.  Then, I cut the front and back into 2 vertical strips each (sorry, no pic).  Next, I stitched the 4 strips together at the end to form a long loop.  Finally, I top-stitched the embelishment on using a zipper foot.

 Now, I can wear it doubled loosly with a t-shirt or sweater.
 Or triple it and wear it under a fabulous white jacket.
