Happy New Year!  I have an idea that seems pretty cool to me.  I wear Hawaiian shirts a lot and I'd like to make an Aloha scarf.  I have a bright red wool scarf that I am going to sew remnants of an Aloha shirt on.  I'll post pics when I am done.  I am looking for advice though....should I attach the aloha fabric to just the ends of the scarf or should I try to cover the entire length of the scarf?  Any and all input is much appreciated!

That's a really cool idea ... I used to wear Hawaiian shirts over the top of turtlenecks in the dead of winter  when  I lived in the Midwest.  You should keep in mind how each of the fabrics behaves when making your scarf. The existing scarf probably has more give to it than the shirt. I think tacking bits of the shirt on the scarf will work best and be most interesting.
Be sure to post a pic when you're done.

Thanks for the advice.  I think I will just sew some of the aloha fabric on the ends of the scarf.  It's so cool that your wore your Hawaiian shirts over a turtleneck....I like that!
