Tutorial Time!!!! It’s actually 65 degrees, but I was a woman on a mission and absolutely wanted this DIY project and tutorial to hit the blog this week, so I sucked it up for you! I, like an idiot, did not take ‘Before’ photos…but I took after photos, and made two really sketchy, half-asleep tutorial-ish things for you. Really, it’s easy. This is also my December 3 and 4th entries for the December Photo Challenge with Mama Making Changes! The 3rd was ‘Red’ and the 4th is ‘It’s so cold!’.
I’ve never had matching winter wear – I just have a small basket of accumulated, mismatched gloves, mittens, hats, and scarves. I decided to fix this, by taking an XXL men’s sweater, and hacking it to pieces. I had a lot of material left, but I’m also a fairly small person. You can pick up sweaters in all sorts of scarf-y patterns at your local thrift store for extremely cheap. This one cost me $2! Not only are you saving money (and matching!), but you’re also upcycling – yay, for not buying new! Out of this one sweater, I made a hat, scarf, legwarmers, and hand-warmers. ♥ Here: Photobomb, including a surprise Ninja appearance:
