Blanket scarves are my new obsession. They are huge, chunky scarves that could literally pass as a blanket. The only problem with my obsession? Blanket scarves are mucho expensive. My favorite one from Zara is 42$! Aint nobody got money for that! So, I used my noggin and came up with a solution to my conundrum. Here is how to make your very own blanket scarf!
- Purchase 2-2.5 yards of flannel fabric. I got mine at Joanne’s fabric store, but you can sometimes find it at Walmart or any other fabric store!
- Using the patterned flannel edge as a guide, trim the edges of each side of your scarf.
- Grab the loose threads on the side and pull them down gently, fraying the edges of the scarf. Keep doing this until there are no loose threads and you have a nicely frayed edge. Repeat on each side of the scarf. The frayed edges add a nice rustic flare to the scarf, but if you want a more clean cut look then leave the edges un-frayed.
I cannot wait to make a whole truckload of these babies! Will YOU be trying out this cozy DIY?
