I should have just called this Ruffled Scarf Week
Last night I finished up the red scarf, which was definitely a learning experience. I ended up cutting the scarf into two long scarves to lighten up the weight so it would help it ruffle up and I added 2 more rows of elastic thread and then clipped the edges to give it a frayed look and I think it turned out cute. Fabric selection is key. I think the red striped fabric was just too heavy!
Once I finished the red scarf, I started working on the “fancier” teal scarf which turned out very nice, but a little short. The pictures don’t really do it justice but by the time I finish making these its pretty late at night and I’m in no shape to take pictures of myself wearing them. : )
The inspiration for this scarf came from one I purchased at Isle of You (another great store, with lots of unique clothing) for $25. This example cost of about $5, and the larger one will probably cost $10.
I haven’t forgotten about my furniture projects, I haven’t made it back to Lowes yet, hopefully I will have an update on them this weekend. Thanks for reading, I hope I have inspired you as well!
