DIY Silk Tube Scaves

The bottom one was my
grandmother's :)

I came across this great tutorial from Belrossa and knew I finally had something to make with the vintage scarves I've been holding onto! Cowl scarves! I put her directions to the test and am so happy with what I've made. I started with the two scarves above, ranging between 24" and 30" wide.

Next, you overlap the two ends and pin together. I used embroidery floss, instead of regular thread) to add a pop of that pretty purple color. Tie knots and the beginning and end, then cut the extra floss.

My grandma's scarf got a makeover!

This scarf came from a local thrift shop -
only 70 cents!
