Skirt Turned Scarf

This project was one of the few that I have done that was totally custom and at the same time totally green! A friend of mine made a skirt in high school sewing class and was never able to part with it even after she could not or did not want to wear it anymore. I wish I had a picture of the skirt before, it was a cute long A-line skirt that has a fun story behind it. When she was making the skirt in class and she sewed it half, and that was the first time the teacher had seen that done in all of her years of teaching sewing. Sewing is not her forte and her mom ended up making it for her. :) She wanted to turn this creation of hers into a scarf to wear and I thought it was a great idea.
We played with the size a bit until we came up with this long thin scarf which works great because it is a thin material and hangs nicely and looks great on her. It was a fun challenge to figure out how to make it work for her and see what we could do. I can not wait to see what fun outfits she puts together with this, scarfs are becoming my new favorite accessory.
