So I love a good scarf. It's on the top of my list of favorite accessories after bags and sunglasses. And it's not just a winter accessory either, it's something you can literally wear all year around. A popular trend right now are these oversize blanket scarves which are huge. One of my very good friends Cory is scarfologist (yeah I made that up). No but seriously this man can take a sheet and wrap it around his neck and make it look like art. I'm am always intrigued and watch with fascination as he is wrapping them. I couldn't even tell you how many he actually owns.
When we go shopping together I'm often the girl who looks at the price tag and say's "I can make that". Well boys and girl here is the quickest and easiest DIY on the planet. A blanket scarf is nothing but a really cool piece of fabric. Before you go to the stores and drop a crazy amount of money on a scarf that someone else will most likely be wearing, hit up your local fabric store first. A good blanket scarf is about a 1.5 to 2 yards of fabric. You can sew the edges or leave them raw. I often like to let mine fray a bit.
This scarf above is 2 yards of 100% wool and only cost me $6 versus the $15-$35 you would spend in the store.
1.5 - 2 yards of fabric of choice
THAT'S IT! Easiest DIY yet!!
