DIY infinity scarf - sweater refashion

 Today is another NO SEW sweater refashion project! And it just takes a few snips! 

You will need:
A sweater & scissors

Here's the sweater looked life before....
Now let's refashion!
 Lay your sweater flat and cut right under where the sleeves start.

Run your fingers along the cut edge to strip away any loose fibers. Fold the scarf in half or in thirds (with both ends folded toward the center)

Now it's ready to wear! A stylish way to add texture, volume and possibly color to your outfit. It's great worn alone or with a coat!

 I love to take it a step further and add some sparkle to it! Make a cluster of brooches using this technique with the Styled by Tori pendants

  1. Love the cute ideas with sweaters! Just a little afraid to get started....Do the sweaters unravel when you cut them? Would it be good to sew or glue them? Thanks!

    1. I haven't had one unravel yet! :) Just make sure it's not too loosely woven....you could use the edge if you wanted.
