I have seen these adorable blanket scarves all over lately and went looking for one. Of course, it was out of my budget – so I figured out a way to make a scarf for a third of the cost!
This is so simple, you will not need to cut any material off or sew a stitch! The fabric I used measures 44 inches wide, therefore you will only need to have the fabric cut 2 yards long. You will be fraying the short ends of your scarf (not the long sides). All you need to do is start ripping the the first few threads that run horizontal in your material. You will continue to rip the thread across (the picture below shows a close up of what this will look like) until you have ripped about an inch off. The vertical threads will remain in place and create a fringe. This did take some time (it took me about a movie’s worth of sitting on the couch and fraying) but it wasn’t too bad. Honestly there are tons of ways to use this scarf! It’s giant! I will be adding a post in the near future showing you some ways to style blanket scarves. Hope you try it out!
