UpCycle Ya Life: Turn an old t-shirt into circular scarf or Statement Necklace!

Turn an old t-shirt into a unique and desirable circular scarf.  Embellish it with your one-of-a-kind design using cotton African wax prints, beads, sequins and macramé knotting.  You will leave with a beautiful and uniquely personal scarf, some renegade sewing techniques, a handy guide to remind you of your new skills, and a little bit of Uganda in your soul.
