Refashion: gauchos to scarf




I did some late night creating while my husband was sleeping.  I took the pair of gauchos above, that I've only ever worn once, 3 years ago, and turned them into this scarf.  It's a soft and lightweight scarf that would be good for fall or spring.  Since I used jersey material I didn't have to hem the edges, and just left them raw.  It was a very quick project!  I took lots of short cuts and didn't even measure anything.  I cut the scarf pieces against an existing scarf that I liked the lenth and width of.  Then I sewed three strips together to get the lenth that I wanted.  Then I just cut lots of thin little strips and sewed them on the ends at varying angles.  I like the messiness of it and think it adds character that the strips are different widths, and placed unevenly apart.
