Whoa, this project was a revelation in it´s simplicity!

I am a big fan of scarves because they keep me warm & I wear them all day. I prefer lightweight cotton and wool woven scarves. And you know, they´re pretty difficult to come by -especially in solid colours. And usually the fabric is pretty bad quality or I can´t afford to buy good grade.
But luckily with DIY logic you can think outside the box and have both -good quality with affordable price (me doing the labour, logistics etc.). So I bought some organic cotton voilé and tore it to a chunky size. I ripped off a few rows of threads from every side for a small fringe and then bought a small packet of reactive dye and loaded all in a washing machine.

And so I have a new spring scarf and in a lovely deep olive / moss green shade. I´m so thrilled with this super-easy and quick project and how it turned out because scarves are really the backbone of my go-to basics.
While I was photographing the scarf I noticed first hepaticas. It´s unbelievable that it still snows in Finland daily but these keep blooming in warm places. This spring has been the most bizarre I can remember. Luckily 1st of May should be sunny! Cheers and happy weekend!

    Beautiful scarf – and flowers. I love that you dyed the fabric, I probably would have only gotten as far as tearing it :-)
