We’re well into our annual deep freeze here in Alberta. Remind me again why I live here? It’s not for the frostbite so it must be love.
I have been bundled up all week trying to keep warm the best way I know how…SCARVES! I am obsessed with scarves and in this case size does matter; the bigger, bulkier, chunkier the better! I don’t even know how many scarves I have but it’s still not enough, which brings me to my latest project.
Because I am not the greatest seamstress and not nearly patient enough to become one I followed no rules and sewed this scarf my way. I found a sweater dress at Value Village for $6 that looked like it had never been worn. I liked the striped pattern so like many pieces of fabric I come home with, it was either going to be converted into a throw pillow or a scarf. Clearly I chose scarf.
I wanted to keep as much fabric as I could of the dress so I only cut off the sleeves and collar then trimmed a little here and there to even it out into one long rectangle open on each end for the purpose of creating an infinity scarf.
I neatened up the ends by sewing a hem and trimmed my loose threads. And that was it. It fits great, feels great, looks great; I think it will serve its purpose.
