Inspired by the latest issue of Readymade, I made this scarf out of two sweaters I never wear for my boyfriend's stepsister. It was a pain to sew, but I'm pretty happy with how it came out. The birds are charms from http://www.sacredkitschstudio.com/ (an awesome site with some really cool charms) and the surrounding material is felt. I would definitely do this again, as I can't knit, but love scarves!

Its pretty long....

ME TOO. i suggest getting the rectangular knifty knitter loom...they have them at michaels with the yarn (its purple) because you can make some loverly scarves and its so SO easy, you dont even understand. i should post a pic one day. they're great fun.


ps-i also love your scarf and readymade. *swoon* i plan on making a bunch of snow globes...as well as my own ice rink...when i love to someplace cold.

for gods sake. Save Leah.

Such a great idea!
I collect scarves, too.

Thanks for the compliments!

SoNotEllen - I'm assuming you have the latest issue of Readymade- when you look at the picture of the scarf they did, doesn't it look like the raw edges would be kind of ugly??? The scarf I made has a back to it, but that made it a little wonky looking...but I guess the seamstress in me can't bear to have visible stitches & raw edges...

Very very cute. And thank you for the resource. I heart birdies.

Wow, that scarf is gorgeous!  Your boyfriend's stepsister is very lucky!

Modpodge....(wrote).....doesn't it look like the raw edges would be kind of ugly??? The scarf I made has a back to it, but that made it a little wonky looking...but I guess the seamstress in me can't bear to have visible stitches & raw edges...

   Did you use a machine, or by hand? When I looked at the scarf in the new ReadyMade, I was thinking that when you stitch it together, you just overlap the felt sections.......so there wouldn't be the raw edges (well, not the same kind anyway) such as when sewing the pieces face to face? There would be overlapping on both sides that could be alternated?

    I do look forward to making some of these too......you could make a whole set, but felting a sweater and cutting out mittens and maybe even a hat!  Sounds fun to me! I'll post some if I get to make it!

    I think you added a nice touch by putting the charm on there! It looks great!
