1. Select old T-shirt of choice and a bandanna or scarf you have laying around. Make sure it is aligned and not too wrinkly before you pin it down. I had the upper corner of my bandanna positioned a little above the neckline so that when I sewed it the bandanna would look more apart of the shirt.
2. Next seam rip enough of the neckline to fit that upper corner of the bandanna underneath it and sew [ideally with thread that matches the shirt, but I only had blue]. Cut excess.
3. Now stitch around outside of bandanna. If you are using a machine [and I hope for your sake you are!] a normal stitch should be fine. Leave hem for last.
4. For your hem fold and iron under, make sure the edges of the bandanna hem match that of the shirt. Sew! Lastly turn your shirt inside out and cut out the area of shirt that has been replaced by the bandanna. If you don't the extra fabric may make the shirt look baggy.

Note to self: At the end of the day, there is ALWAYS room for your sewing machine in your dorm room.
