Scarves are by far one of my favorite accessories especially in fall, but they can be pricey…some going for over $30 apiece.
I’ve been seeing really pretty pictures on Pinterest of blankets scarves but there was a certain plaid pattern I was searching. As luck with have it, on a trip to Jo-anne fabric one afternoon I saw the pattern I wanted! They had quite a selection of plaid fabrics. I love the green with red and blue.
I waited a few weeks for the plaid fabrics to be marked down 40% and then I used a 20% off your purchase coupon.
Regular price the fabric was $9.99 per yard. I purchased roughly 1 1/3 yards. So it would have cost about $13. With the 40% off I got the fabric for $5.99/yard and an additional 20% or $1.50 of so my final price was roughly $6.20 before taxes.
The 1 1/3 yards makes the fabric square in shape, so I basically just fold it up how I like and there is my blanket scarf. No sewing required.
A $6 blanket scarf!
If you personally would like to add fringe edges there is a how to tutorial here from jo-ann’s website.
