re-purposed old t shirts/ sweater

i don't know about you, but, with kids, teenage kids, we have a pile of clothes that they have either out grown or "just don't want to wear" anymore. so, yesterday, i got out the scissors and cut those up to make this super cute homemade small circle scarf. i cut the t shirts and sweaters into rectangles and then stitched them together. i didn't even care about raw edges- i figured it made this scarf even more interesting. so some edges are clean and matched how you should sew, and other edges are raw.
