Flamingo Toes

Flamingo Toes
Scarves are quickly becoming my favorite accessory. They are so cute and I love them all. Crochet, pretty printed fabrics, infinity scarves – they add so much color and fun to an outfit. Plus I love the extra layers since I am pretty much always cold. They can be super easy to sew up too – especially today’s 1 Hour Floral and Lace Infinity Scarf! You can decide you need something fun to add to your outfit and make this up before you head out the door.

Tie a starter knot along with the two colored threads you are using, leaving at least 3 inches of slack, Tape down the slack to a flat surface or safety pin it something that will help keep it in place (feeling nostalgic yet?).
