Made This: Embellished Jersey Scarf

Welcome to our friends from The Inspired Room's Beautiful Life linky fest!  
********************************************




I have a jersey scarf. I love my jersey scarf.

 It all started at last year's caroling party- my friend was gushing about her jersey scarf she bought at a trendy store- it was so soft, so warm, so wonderful. I sidled closer and realized it was nothing more than a piece of fabric. Not a stitch to be seen!

Well, when I found a 1/4 yard remnant of mint green, organic bamboo jersey in the remnant bin, you better believe I snapped it up and I've been wearing it proudly ever since.

Jersey scarves are wonderful, but I thought this one could use a little jazzing up- Aunt LoLo suggested a posie, and, well...here you go.

I kind of love it.



PS- Because fabric stashes are funny beasts, this fabric was passed to me by my fabulous Mother-In-Law. It was leftovers from jersey fitted sheets she made for Ernie's crib.

That is very pretty!
How much fabric would you need? Do you use up the whole 1/4 yard of the remnant?
I can always use more winter stuff. Brr... it's getting cold.
