If you look around, you can see that oversized scarves are very trendy right now like they were last year. I’ve had my eye out for the perfect one, but no luck so far. I decided to check out the fabric store and just *see* if they had any cute flannel/brushed cotton that I could potentially turn into a scarf! Well. They did. And let me tell ya. This is probably the easiest fashion DIY ever. The first one I made was out of a gorgeous red and charcoal grey buffalo plaid brushed cotton. I think it was $8.99/yd and I had a 40% off coupon. I bought two yards and cut it down the middle in order to make a smaller scarf. (I am using the other half as a tree skirt. More on that later.) I trimmed all the edges ever so slightly, and unraveled them. Unraveling the edges was probably the most time consuming part. This scarf cost me about $5.
The second one I made is definitely more of a blanket scarf. I chose a dark navy and green plaid flannel. This time I bought 1.5 yards and left it wide (I didn’t cut it down the middle). The flannel cost $7.99/yd and I had a coupon for 40% off, so this scarf cost me about $7. Again, I trimmed the edges and unraveled. Boom. CHEAP, trendy blanket scarf. Another perk is that not everyone will have it!
I think this is so versatile. You could use this same concept and make lots of cute things for Fall/Winter! Maybe a light throw, a tree skirt, or even a table runner. Inexpensive Christmas gift idea, anyone?
