Hello everyone! I’m Stacie, a DIY fashion blogger over at Stars for Streetlights, and I am so excited to be posting for Chie today while she is away! I have always loved making things and sewing ever since I was a little girl– and things haven’t changed much now that I’m older. One of my favorite things to refashion has to be scarves.
During the day, I am a writer, blogger, and photographer over at Scarves Dot Net, and it is pretty much the best job ever. (Seriously, I get to think about scarves all day!) I’m always looking for new ways to tie, sew, craft, and wear scarves– and because the’yre essentially giant pieces of pretty fabric. 😉 Here are a few of my favorite DIY projects for scarves.
|DIY Scarf Belt: Skinny scarves make wonderful belts if you have any sitting around. To make this DIY accessory, I used this leopard print scarf, but you can use any print to spice up an outfit. (I am a big fan of chevrons right now.)|
|DIY Scarf Camera Strap: I’m a huge photography nerd but I can never find a cute camera strap. (Does anyone else have that problem?!) Silk is one on of the strongest fibers in the world, so I decided to make a camera strap from a silk scarf.|
|DIY Scarf Bag: Need a quick bag on the go? Try making one out of a scarf! Aimee from Swellmayde uses a cute trick she found on a Hermes knotting card to make a chic and functional purse from a scarf.|
|DIY Quote Scarf:Have a favorite quote that you’d like to carry with you all the time? Try writing it out on a scarf! My friend Maggie, wrote out her favorite Andy Warhol quotes on this scarf. (She had about 6 of them. She even tried to write in Andy Warhol’s handwriting!)|
|Scarf Purse Strap: Have a broken or purse strap? Try using a scarf instead! This simple fix can give an old bag a longer life.|
|DIY Scarf Shirt: To make a simple and flowy scarf shirt, just gather two square scarves and stitch them together!|
