If you have just stumbled into this blog you may not know much about me yet. First of all, I'm probably experiencing the busiest autumn of my life so far - I have a job, I study in a business program, and I'm starting up my own upcycled clothing business at the same time. My schedule is full. Overflowing, actually! But sometimes, when you suddenly have an idea out of the blue, you can't help but do it right away.
So when I was trying to figure out what to do with the leftover scraps of fabric from my clothing projects, I had the idea of an oversized scarf. The whole point of making upcycled clothing is to create as little waste as possible and to turn something useless into something desirable.
It took me a good two hours to make the pattern, choose the colors, compose the small scraps so that none would go to waste, and sew everything together. So it wasn't as quick of a project as I thought it would be (I really didn't have the time for it...) but I love the result so much I'm going to forgive myself!
And I'm sorry if you happen to like this one, too - it already found a new owner... But my closet is full of scraps so I will be making more of these as soon as I have some time. The next one will have shades of purple, white and plum (plaid and solid), so if you'd like a shabby scarf in those colors, let me know and I'll reserve it for you.
