Several months ago the ladies from our community group got together to do a clothing swap. We all brought all of our ill fitting clothes, and exchanged them for new to us items to bring home. I volunteered to be in charge of donating the leftovers so that I could have the opportunity to salvage buttons and fabrics for my refashion pile. Since then my refashion pile has been busting at the seams, and today I finally took the time to make over a few of the items. Here is what I started out with...
And I transformed them into all of these infinity scarves.
I was SUPER lazy with this projects. I never pressed any of the fabrics or the seams. And the first one (the purple plaid pajama pant one) was the only one that I actually used pins on, the rest I just held the fabric together while I sewed (which was even harder with the silk skirts that wanted to stretch as I sewed). I have never done a sewing project without using pins, but since infinity scarves are very forgiving I gave it a whirl and am pleased with the results. I was even too lazy to put matching thread in my machine, and just ended up using the white that I already had in there for each of these projects. They all turned out well, and I had all of them done within an hour. I will say that Jeremy has forbid me from wearing one of them, because he thinks the fabric looks old lady-ish, but oh well. It was fun to create with my sewing machine for the first time in a while, and the fact that I gave new life to old discarded items is even better.
