DIY: Dyed Infinity Scarf + Rit Dye Giveaway

Awwww the infinity scarf. I only recently discovered the magical powers of the infinity scarf. I love these things and think they’d make a great gift. It’s inevitable that every year my Mom will end up giving someone a scarf. I hope this year she makes it fancy like this…

Materials: White T-shirt, Rit Dye, Rubber bands

Cut the bottom foot and a half off of the t-shirt to make your infinity scarf. Here’s a tip… Buy a size 2XL or 3XL so your scarf will be longer. Pre-wash your shirt before you dye it.

Prep your tee by rolling it up and putting rubber bands around it.

Be creative and pick whatever colors excite you. I used navy and dipped both ends in the dye. Remember the longer you let your fabric sit in the dye, the darker the color will be.

I then dipped my middle section into a mixture of violet dye

Once you’re finished with the dying process, cut off the rubber bands and unroll your fabric to reveal your pattern

I love how the dye sort of bleeds into the un-dyed section.

The infinity scarf kept me warm as I sat by the fire and got an early jump on wrapping gifts. May I just add how proud I am that it’s December 8th and I’m already wrapping gifts. I have been known to wrap a gift on Christmas morning minutes before the family gathers around the tree. So happy to be ahead of the game this year.

My scarf was inspired by the fab decor in the new Tory Burch flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York. I love all the different shades of purple and the tie dye effect used on those ottomans. Tory always uses bold colors in her designs. So I’d love to know…

Question: What’s your favorite color?

When I was a little girl purple was my favorite color. I wanted everything I owned to be purple!!! Now I’d have to say I’m a huge fan of green because it looks the best on me. I’d love to hear what your favorite color is. Leave your answers below. Contest ends tonight at 9pm pst and with the help of a fancy number generating system, a number will be selected. If your answer falls in the comment box that corresponds with the selected number…you win selection of different colored dyes from Rit Dye! Don’t worry if you don’t win today because we’re playing this game all week! Each day is a new DIY project, a new prize and a new chance to win.

For more images of the Tory Burch store check here and check out one of my favorite decor and design blogs, So Haute! I have hours of fun looking at the images on this blog and always walk away with tons of inspiration.

UPDATE: 18 was the randomly selected number!

Congrats Lara! You won a selection of Rit Dye!

    I’ve always loved warm, rich colors like browns, sables, minks, lattes, cocoa, but one day it dawned on me that I can also wear jewel tones of emerald, amethyst, berry, gold/mustard, chartreuse and ruby! I boldly wear them all because somehow, each color has a different vibe and energy for me when I’m enveloped in saturated color! How did we once wear black on black everything? LOL

    This is so oddly coincidental. I just cut off the embellished collar of a shirt that doesn’t fit any more the other day and the first thing I thought was, “hey, I could actually use this leftover material as an infinity scarf!” 🙂
