DIY vinyasa scarf

I'm going to learn how to sew this summer.  I've dabbled in it before but I've never been a proficient sewer but I think it would be a good prepper move to cultivate domestic skills and learn how to make and repair clothing.

My boyfriend's mom gave me a sewing machine and today I picked it up from getting serviced so there are no excuses now!

I get really cold at work so I kind of want the lululemon vinyasa scarf... just not $48 want it.  It's basically just a scarf with snaps!

I searched for a diy and I found this tutorial and came up with this: 






etc. etc.  I think the whole project took me maybe 2 hours with the ironing and TV watching going on.  The worst part was the snaps, I hate snaps!  I'll look for a snap-free second sewing project. I'll try this again when I'm not so terrible at sewing.

  1. Nice work! Glad you got use out of the tutorial! I hate the snaps part too, so does my husband. He thinks it is terribly annoying when I pound the hammer over and over! I will think up another maybe with NO snaps :) Thanks for sharing the link!

  2. I have Dritz Snap Pliers, which makes putting on snaps really easy. I've had mine for over 30 years and they still work great. You can find them online or at any Joann's and maybe even your local WalMart. There's also a heavy duty model for bigger snaps. Here's an Amazon link so you can see what I'm talking about.
