For the Love of Scarves

I love scarves! They always add so much to an outfit. This is one I made last year and it was super easy! I bet you'll never guess what I made it out of!!!

 My mom's old capris! I sure never thought I'd have those wrapped around my neck!

 Can you tell now? I loved the black and white houndstooth fabric that they were made of so I couldn't resist making it a scarf. I cut off one of the pant legs and sewed the raw edges together to make a nice seam, creating a long tube. I probably should have cut the elastic part out but I new it wouldn't show so I left it.
 Then I tried it on and put the elastic end inside the other end and determined how long and tight I wanted the scarf to be and where I wanted the button to go.
 Then I made a button hole at the end of the pant leg and sewed the button on. 
Pretty easy huh?
It goes well with this Billabong coat I found at Ross:)

Here's another fun scarf I found the other day when I was grocery shopping at Smiths. And it was only $1! I love the look of infinity scarves so I figured out how to tie one.
First I laid it out flat and took the top right corner and the bottom left corner and tied them in a square not.
 So it looks like this picture above.
 Then I took the bottom of the scarf and made a second loop and slipped it over my head.
Here's one last scarf I like to wear. I found at Walmart for $5. Don't mind the shadows:)
