Well, a few weeks ago I came across this pin for a No Sew Blanket Scarf and was intrigued. I love the blanket scarf I received in my last Fix but also really wanted a plaid version to add to my neck collection.
Well, I had planned to go by Joann’s to check out their pre-lit Christmas trees (and got one for 50% off, yay!) and while I was there I browsed through their flannel shirt fabric section. Just as promised in the pin, the fabric was $8.99 per yard and an online coupon took me less than 3 minutes to download to my phone.
It was probably the easiest DIY I’ve ever done in my life.
- Pick fabric.
- Cut the crooked edges into a straight line by following the print.
- Throw the fabric in the laundry.
- Pull it out and see that the edges have frayed adorably.
Put that warm fresh-from-the-dryer fabric around my neck and give it a little snuggle:
Isn’t it gorgeous?! I ended up buying 2 ½ yards of fabric for $22.48 and then saved $8.99 by using my online coupon (you can get them right off the Joann’s website and have it sent to your phone). So, the total for my new super soft blanket scarf was only $13.50!
I’ve seen similar blanket scarfs for sale for WAY more than my DIY steal. So I’m feeling pretty darn good about this project!
Have you made a DIY blanket scarf? Are you going to run out to the fabric store and make yourself one now?
