American Apparel Circle Scarf Knock Off (tutorial)

American Apparel Circle Scarf Knock Off (tutorial)
My friend was wearing this super cute circle scarf from American Apparel and I wanted one!! Circle scarves, also called infinity scarves, are so popular this fall! I love the look of them! And they are so cozy and warm! The hardest part of making these circle scarves is finding the right fabric. I got this pile of fabric all for under $20! Super cute, right? And super easy!! I think for the scarf to look good, you need to have a really wide piece of fabric so that it is extra plush and voluminous. Once you cut out the fabric into a rectangle, fold the scarf in half so that the top edge is aligned with the bottom edge, right sides together. You can leave the edges raw because they won’t fray. These scarves are so versatile, too!! The American Apparel gave these other options on how to wear it, though I can’t imagine wearing it as a dress! (source) The American Apparel website also says that the scarf is unisex!! *Thank you to my friend J who took these photos of me! You might also like: Related:  Craft ideas

DIY Circle Scarf | If you’re one of those people who needs a last minute Christmas present, a friend’s birthday is coming up, or you just would love a circle scarf, this tutorial might be awesome for you! I was so surprised when I went into American Apparel and saw their circle scarves for $34! I decided to figure out how to make one for way less, because I knew it would be super easy. One thing different from the regular tutorials out there is that I doubled up the fabric on my scarves. Step 1 First begin with a rectangular piece of material (40 inches x 70 inches). Fold it over lengthwise, so the right sides are facing each other, and then sew along the lengthwise opening. Step 2 Next, reach one arm all the way through the tube at the seam, and grab a hold of the end. Step 3 Now once you have matched up the sides, and you have another tube, sew it, leaving an opening about 3 inches before you finish. Step 4 Using the opening, turn the scarf right side out.

Put Up Your Dukes: braided scarf tutorial i have a tutorial that is forty thrillionty times easier and better than my previous (ahem, first ever...give me some grace!) tutorial. it is accessible to infinitely more people (you dont have to have a baby, OR a dress to start out with). and it is really simple. there are only 4 lines of stitching total. oh, did i mention it's mega cute and chic also: 5 weeks ago i saw this scarf on pinterest. it was pinned by a VERY popular pinner that i follow under her DIY board. i knew i had to make one for myself. but when i followed this "DIY" link, it actually led to a german store where the scarf was 35 euros ($60 shipped!). LOVE these colors. must make a yellow and gray one for me. source the more i thought about it, the more i wanted this, and wanted it CHEAP. i said out loud in our living room, "i am GOING to figure out how to make this for myself." high on our success and planning the tutorial that would certainly be "my big break," i tweeted the following: here's how! what you need: oh, hi!

Homemade Lip Balm Recipe & Printable Labels {DIY Gift} Homemade lip balm is a fabulous DIY gift that can be made it minutes! These little tins of lip balm fit easily in your pocket and will help keep your lips super soft during the cold winter months or days at the beach. I love the way these turned out. I always knew making lip balm would be easy, but I didn’t know it was THIS easy. I don’t think I’ll ever go without homemade lip balm again! I made two different types of lip balm…Sweet Lemon and Orange Kiss. Homemade Lip Balm Supplies (w/ links to buy on Amazon): This should make about 8 little tins of lip balm. Here’s just how easy it really is… Melt your beeswax, almond oil and shea butter together in a glass container in the microwave. It starts to harden quickly so work fast once you’ve melted your mixture. This is what it looks like in about 10 minutes. For the last batch I shaved a little lipstick into the mixture for color. You can see a slightly different shade in some of these. Download the printable labels here! Handmade gift rock! ~Kim
