Happy Valentine’s Day! Today I am sharing a quick DIY I did for my daughter to wear to school today. Here’s the story: I may have mentioned once or twice that I don’t get rid of things easily. I am always looking for ways to reuse and up cycle before something hits the trash, or even the Goodwill pile. Recently I decided to ditch one of my grey tank tops that had pretty much seen it’s last wear. Before i trashed it thought, I thought I would take a stab at making a quick no-sew infinity scarf for my daughter. One thing led to another, and we ended up with a this adorable Hearts & Arrows Infinity Scarf, perfect for Valentine’s Day!
It all just sorta happened, and I am happy it did. Moira loves her new scarf. She told me she can wear it just like Mommy (she’s got my number).
Here is the original…well, sort of original…product. I cut the bottom off the tank, right below the armpit, and stretched that baby out good.
I ironed on some freezer paper on the reverse side of the fabric to stabilize it while stamping. Have I ever mentioned how much I am obsessed with freezer paper? I gathered up my stamps (both from the 1$ section at Michael’s), an ink pad in my chosen color, and got to work.
A stamp here, a stamp there…one facing this way, one facing that way. Etc, etc, etc…
I let the ink dry, removed the freezer paper backing, and ta-da. The fastest scarf DIY you ever did see!
Now, just look at that sassy little girl in her new scarf. All sass.
Hope you have a day filled with love and happy thoughts!
