T-shirt scarfMarch 14, 2012
Hey all you furbulous fans!
I’m going to tell you how to make a T-shirt scarf to go along with the layering technique from my last blog. That way, you can add this scarf and be totally ready for almost any weather!
1. Get an old T-shirt that you don’t mind cutting up. Turn it inside out. With a pencil, draw lines underneath the arm pits of the shirt all the way around. Then, a few inches up from the bottom of the shirt, draw another line all the way around it. With an adult’s supervision, use sharp scissors to cut the bottom and top of the T-shirt off using these lines as a guide.
2. Now you are left with a T-shirt tube! So now, every 1-inch, make 4-5 inch long cuts on one side of the tube to make fringe.
3. Now you’ve got your own T-shirt scarf! You can even add beads and stuff to the bottom to make it unique. No one will ever have the same cool scarf that you do.
This also makes a cool gift for your friends! Just make sure you have an adult’s permission to use sharp scissors, and be safe!
The wonders of layeringMarch 12, 2012
Since the weather has been really weird lately, I’m having a hard time finding things to wear. Are you? I mean, it’s been warm, then it’s snowing, then its flip-flop weather again, then it’s SNOWING! It’s just crazy. So what is a girl to do when the weather changes from freezing to hot in the same day? Hello, layers!
Layering is a technique, kind of a style of dressing that many outdoor enthusiasts know very well because they have to do it all the time. When you start a hike in the morning, it could be 32 degrees, and by noon it could be 72 degrees. So people who like to camp and hike know all about it.
It just means that you have to wear something really light as your first layer, then you wear something heavier, like a long sleeved shirt, over it. Then you can wear a jacket over everything! That way, when you start to get warm you can remove layers and still feel comfortable.
Have fun layering!
Girl Scouts WeekMarch 07, 2012
Did you guys know that next week is Girl Scouts Week in the United States? I think being a scout rocks. You learn so much that you can use for the rest of your life! Are you a Girl Scout? If you are, I bet you have learned at least one thing that you’ll remember someday, right? I have learned how to organize fundraising events, which is really important and helpful knowledge. It’s a good skill to have because you have to make lists of things you need, talk to people you don’t know, direct people and tell them what you need help with.
This year the Girl Scouts are celebrating their 100th anniversary! You will be able to make your own 100th Anniversary Girl Scouts Bear at Build-A-Bear Workshop starting March 16. It’s so cute and it’s going to be very popular so be sure to get yours when they come out!
Catch ya later!
