2 Dollars + 2 Minutes = 2 Scarves

I can't remember the last time Sharon or I posted a full-on tutorial for a craft.  Have you been missing them, too?

Today at Hobby Lobby, inspiration struck me when I found a 3/4 yard remnant of grey jersey fabric for $2.69.  Immediately, I thought "scarves!" because I have admittedly been a bit scarf-obsessed lately which is crazy considering it's still very much summer here in Florida.

3/4 of a yard of jersey knit turned out to be the perfect amount of fabric for two scarves.  The supply list for this project is ridiculously short--jersey knit and scissors.  You can handle that, right?

Just lay your fabric out and cut it in half lengthwise. (I realize my fabric is folded incorrectly for this statement, but I folded it and then cut up the middle so I had less to cut.  Yes, I'm that lazy!)

Stretch your fabric pieces lengthwise and voila, you have scarves!  Knit fabrics are awesome because you can leave raw edges and they don't fray--tugging lengthwise on the fabric creates a nice "finished" look on your unfinished knit.

And because I like to explain things to death:

The fabric on the left is the cut but not-yet-stretched jersey.  The scarf in the center is complete--just the cut piece of jersey knit all stretched lengthwise.  The scarf on the right was just for a point of reference.

Don't forget to take an unflattering picture of your neck.  Then you're officially done.

I have seen SO many jersey scarves out and about lately and I've been tempted to buy them, but I can never bring myself to spend $10-$15 on a piece of long, skinny fabric. Sometimes it pays to be cheap. And as a bonus, when people compliment your scarf you can proudly say "I made it". Throw in a "boo-yah" if you feel like it. I definitely would.

P.S.  I completed this craft while my toddler was awake.  So, yeah, it's really that easy.
