(Sorry about the pixel-eee picture)
Here is the expensive Fossil scarf. Do you love it? I do!
Now, for all the fabulous people who know how to knit or crochet, you can whip this out in a heartbeat. But for me, who doesn't know how, I had to improvise!
The color is kind of drab, but with a cute jacket/coat it will do just fine!
Here is an ancient sweater I have had hanging around...just waiting for new life.
I used a seam ripper to remove the sleeves.
After removing both the sleeves, I cut them to be the length I wanted my scarf.
I turned the sleeves inside out and put one sleeve inside the other. Once I run a stitch around it, I can pull it right side out and I will be perfect!
Just slide the arm of your sewing machine into the sleeve and stitch around the opening.
Turn it right side out and this is what you will have!
I wrapped it around my neck and marked where I wanted it and then tacked it with some thread. I snipped a button off the old sweater hand sewing it onto my scarf! You can make a button hole if you wanted, but mine is stretchy enough I can slip it over my head.
There you have it!
Here's my little Charlee Boo modeling it! If I looked as HOT as the Fossil model, I would model it for you. But, let's face it. I'm not. Especially when it's 9:00 at night, I have taken my contacts out and have my taped up glasses on with my pj's...yeah not model material!
I know you all have an old sweater just laying around, so pull it out and make yourself something warm for the winter! Now that I know how easy this is, I may have to find a thrift store sweater with some color to add a little more pizazz to my new accessory!
