Pinterest Obssession

Ok, I think I need a pinterest intervention. It's great for a visual stimulation junkie like me.  But, I have found MANY great ideas from it that will save me lots of dough in the long run. Somewhere I saw the idea of making a scarf from a sweater sleeve. I had bought this ugly orange fuzzy sweater at the Thrift Store to cover a pillow for Fall.  I don't look good in orange but I do love it so I thought I'd make a scarf out of it.
I cut the sleeves off.

Then I coated the raw edges at the shoulder with No-Fray glue. And then sewed the larger ends together, keeping the raw edges inside and unseen.

Next I took the smaller ends and held them together.....
and then twisted one end. This will make one continuous but full-bodied scarf.
Then I sewed the small ends together.

All done.
And there you have it! It's perfect for Autumn. Can't until the weather is cool enough to need it.
