DIY Blanket Scarf

Blanket scarfs are very trendy where I live in Canada but I am not satisfied with the price tags of many that I've seen in stores. This sparked the idea that I could simply recreate one myself. This DIY project is not only cost effective but really easy! This blog post is in correspondence to my YouTube video.

- 1.5m x 1.5m of Cotton Flannel (I suggest using 2m x 2m if you are taller than me: 5'3)
- Scissors
- Tweezers

I purchased the fabric from Fabric Land for $7. 

Step 1: Using your scissors, recut all the edges of the fabric to ensure you have a really straight cut. This step is crucial because Step 2 will be difficult if the fabric isn't cut straight to start. If your fabric is plaid like mine, I recommend cutting along a line in the design for accuracy. 

Step 2: Lay the fabric out on a flat surface and using your tweezers begin pulling out threads horizontally to create a fringe. Continue this process until your fringe is approximately 1cm in length. This step can be tedious but the results are worth it!
