DIY A Scarf into a Poncho

I do not think it is a secret, but Sam and I love scarves!  I love the colors, the textures and the comfort they provide.  I adore accessories as a whole, but scarves are just the snuggly, lovely little touches to an outfit that put a smile on my face.  Consequently, I admittedly have quite a collection.  As the weather turns to autumn, I have decided to shake things up a bit.


I love the colors and the fringe on this particular scarf.  It has been great bundled around my neck when it is cold outside.  However, I wanted to be able to use this gorgeous textile in milder weather.  So, I decided to turn it into a light poncho that I could pair with both casual and dressy outfits.  It would be the perfect light layer to give me a bit of warmth and a whole lot of fabulous color and texture.


This DIY is crazy simple.  First, I folded the scarf in half and then I determined how large of an opening that I would want for my poncho.  Then it was just up to choosing some embroidery thread that would accent the scarf and doing a whip stitch with the wrong side of the fabric facing out.


Last step was to just turn it right side out.


I love the fringe!!


And I adore having a different look than a large coat or a pashmina when headed out for the night!


A touch of boho chic and a whole lot of comfy!  I may have to make a couple more 😉

Happy Fall!
