Pinterest to the rescue

So, the bracelets were a bust. Easy? Yes. Fashionable? Ummmm, not so much. Yesterday I continued my search for inspiration, packed up little buddy and took a trip to Jo Ann’s, came home and got to work. I pinned these scarves awhile ago. They were pretty easy to make, and the possibilities are endless. This scarf uses two pieces of fabric. What makes it awesome, is that you can use jersey knit fabric or recycled (or up-cycled???!) clothing. This scarf is made from fabric, but I did experiment with some shirts and an old dress, and I’m psyched.

Next, I experimented with adding a punch of color to a regular infinity scarf.

I’m in love! This flower pin (while a bit of a hassle to make) is adorable, and really dresses up the solid scarf. You can completely change the look by swapping the pink for a different color pin. Today, I plan to experiment more with the flowers. I bought some really cool buttons yesterday that I’d like to incorporate as the center of the bloom.

Scarves

We had family pictures taken at the beginning of December and I searched (and searched) for the perfect outfit. Our photos were outside, and I knew I wanted a scarf to accessorize. I bought a couple, but couldn’t figure out how to wear them so that it looked “right,” until I purchased an infinity scarf. I can’t believe I never owned one before. They’re wonderful! Me being me, I examined my new fashion accessory and quickly discovered that I could have made it myself. With Christmas right around the corner, I placed an order for fabric, and decided to make them for all the women in my family. As suspected, they were a hit. Next, I made, and sold them for the girls in my moms group, again- a hit, and so they are now available for order on my site.
