More Snow Means More Scarves

The silver lining to getting more snow is that it gives me an excuse to feed my circle scarf obsession. Some people prepare for the snow by going to the grocery store, but I go to the fabric store, and this time I bought lots of soft, cozy material.  I love making circle scarves... they're so easy to make and you only need a yard of fabric. I posted a few of my favorite tutorials here
All the fabric you see above I acquired on sale or with a coupon for super cheap. The black and white polka dot scarf turns into a striped pattern and is super soft. The warmest has to be the flannel scarf, and it is bulky enough that it will cover your ears. All the flannel in my stash might end up in scarf form before winter is over. The others are awesome and cuddly jersey knit that you can easily wear all day.
If you have some extra yardage in your sewing stash, I highly recommend making one. I promise you won't regret it! They might even be worth a quick trip to the fabric store.

What is your favorite way to stay warm in the winter?



  1. I love the simplicity of circle scarves too!

    My favorite way to keep warm is a cozy scarf and my knitted headband you sent me!

  2. Circle scarves are my favorite too. I can wear my jersey ones all day,indoor and outdoors. I'm so much warmer when my neck is covered.

  3. There's nothing better than a cute scarf to keep you warm while the snow falls ^_^ I love the flannel fabric you used, it looks so soft and cosy!

  4. You just send one of those down to Ohio soon! :)
