DIY - No Sew - Sweater to Scarf TutorialOctober 12, 2013
I wanted scarves but didn't want to pay for them...
Allow me to explain. Lately, I've been loving scarves and their versatility but am challenging myself to not buy new clothes and accessories until I have exhausted all my options (aka the stuff I already own). Meanwhile, I have a tradition of changing and rearranging my closet when the seasons change. As a part of this tradition, I require myself to be honest (with myself) by asking,
1. Do I really need this?
2. How many combinations can be created with this item?
3. Will I actually wear this more than once if I keep it?
I know these questions seem silly but they really work, if you answer honestly. Any who, I stumbled across several sweaters/sweater dresses that I had every intention of wearing when I bought them; the reality is - I've haven't worn either garment in 2 years.
Luckily, I'm a firm believer in re-purposing and recreating, especially when it comes to clothes. So most of the sweater dresses I own are going to turn into infinity scarves. I found similar inspiration on pinterest and decided to record my efforts for you. If you don't have a sweater you're willing to cut up, head to your local thrift store to find sweaters. I hope you enjoy.
