Old Man Winter has made itself know to those of us in Minnesota this past week.
No easing in to colder temps and snow for us ... no sir.
Just here's temps in the teens and a bunch of snow to get you started.
Thanks Old Man Winter - - your the best!
It does make it the perfect time to show you what I've been up to in my studio lately.
I'm sure you've seen this type of thing in the stores lately and if your at all like me their soft, cozy look has you wanting to take it home.
The only thing that stopped we was the price tag.
They range in price between $25 to $35 that I have seen which I thought was ridiculous.
Hoping I could make it for cheaper I stopped off at my local JoAnne's and found what they call Swirl Fur. I bought two yards for $15 dollars with a coupon -- that's more like it!
Ridiculously easy to make, I snapped a few photos while I sewed one together.
Follow along if you'd like to make yourself one in ten minutes tops!
Let me just say, this fabric makes a mess like nothing I've ever seen before. Clean's up nicely with a vacuum and I promise once all your seams are finished it will stop shedding.
I took my finished cowl outside and gave it a good shaking once it was finished and now it's perfect.
Here I am trying it on for the first time. It's become my favorite scarf to wear. I wear it all the time.
Inside ... Outside... Whenever I get a little chilly.
Now I prefer cowl length scarves like this but if your the type of person who like to be able to wrap a scarf around your neck a couple times you could easily double the length of the fabric to make it work better for you.
They would make great Christmas gifts too!
