Scarf Weather and a Wonderful Refashion

My lovely friend Tara was having a "Rugged Outdoors" Fall themed get together at her house last weekend. Naturally, I needed to find something rugged, and well....outdoorsy to wear. I scooped up my daughter and we headed to the thrift store! We found some plaid and flannel, and some plaid flannel. I thought to myself, "These will do the trick!" 
Initially, I thought about wearing a plaid button down with leggings and boots, but it just didn't look right. Luckily, I bought a few shirts to choose from. In the pile of shirts there was a perfectly fitting one for the hubs, which was a bonus, and I decided to pair my outdoorsy outfit with made-from-flannel-shirts scarf! 
This is how I did it:

Gotta start with some shirts...

I cut off the collar and sleeves.

I cut the collar and sleeves on this one too.

This left me with the front and back of both shirts.
I realized it would be wayyyyy too long with 4 parts, 
so I decided to take away one part. 

I trimmed up the edges, and sewed the pieces together.
It was super cute with the buttons showing!
There was even a little pocket!

Warm and cozy flannel all sewed up!

I paired my new warm scarf with a red shirt, long grey sweater, leggings, and a faux fur vest.
I was feeling rugged and outdoorsy!

My hubs and I looked great in our flannel outfits,
 not to mention so rugged, and so outdoorsy!

Fun party- goers!

Thanks for a great party Tara!

See you next Time!
