Back to school doesn’t have to mean back to school shopping. Instead, DIY! I love fashion trends, but I also hate having to keep up with them if it means spending money. Generally I choose classic-looking clothes and I try to limit my trendiness to a few select accessories. Luckily, one of the hottest scarf designs this season is ridiculously easy and fun to sew. I spent $1.20 on the elastic thread, and in 5 minutes I had stitched up my new favorite scarf out of some jersey I had lying around. I had a blast making it too!
If you are nervous about sewing with elastic, don’t be! It’s so easy. Don’t be concerned about making the lovely gathers, either. There is nothing to fear. This project is the perfect chance to sew crazy freeform swoops without worrying about anything at all — via ç
