It may be a bit too soon to tell you again to go check out Style All Over, but RA’s post last Friday on how to shop for scarves was awesome. I really liked the idea of buying some jersey at the fabric store and wearing it as a scarf. In completely uncharacteristic fashion for me (I almost never follow through on interesting crafts), I went out the next day and actually bought some jersey.

I found this fabric in the clearance section with a remnant of only 1 yard left (for $7!), so right away RA’s suggestion to buy 2 yards and cut it was out. I’d decided against a no-sew scarf anyway, though, so it wasn’t a problem. I didn’t want the back of my fabric to show, so I planned on sewing it into a tube, figuring I could handle sewing a straight line.

Bonus picture – a completed braided scarf. (I used same-pattern fabric for the first few to make it easier. I’ve ordered jersey in red and gold – Iowa State colors – to make next.)
