Stripes and Plaid

I have totally hopped on the plaid bandwagon. It's such a fun print for coloring mixing. So are stripes for that matter! I have a couple plaid scarves with pinks and purples, but I wanted one with darker colors. Oh and I didn't feel like paying tons. I saw a tutorial on how to make one and it seemed simple enough. While it took me 15 minutes instead of 10, I call it a total success (especially since the extra time was because of me having to rethread the bobbin a couple times). With a coupon, my material was only $6 and because it took a whole yard, there was no cutting! I've already made another from some scraps of fabric I had laying around and am working on reconfiguring one of my husband's old plaid shirts now, too!
Have you linked up an outfit on our link up yet?

  5. Guess who else is wearing B+W Stripes today? Yep, me - that's right. LOL I am sooo loving your Infinity Scarf. It is a Beautiful Plaid. Proud of you for making it. As always I am loving the photos and I am jealous of the snow. Send some my way. We get snow very rarely here where I live. =(


    And I gave you a shot-out on today's post. Happy Thursday!!
