I found this very cute, quick and easy scarf tutorial here. So, I just had to make one. I had some red felt left over from another project so I jumped right on it. (Fleece would probably be better/more durable, but I had felt and it doesn't have to be hemmed either, so I went with it.)
I don't like my hand work (I feel it isn't very good), but I did the blanket stitch around the edge anyway. I did it in brown (I love red and brown together), but I think black or white would look great too. (I know it doesn't show up in the picture, but like I said I don't like my hand work so I really don't mind if it showed up or not.)
The scarf works up really well and comes together rather quickly (with the exception of the blanket stitch). I put my scarf, embroidery thread, needle and scissors in a basket and carried them with me and worked on it while I was waiting in car rider line to pick the boys up from school.
This scarf is going to be a gift for a friend, but then I think I will make me one too. I love red (especially in the dreary winter months - it adds a punch of color). Red goes great with Christmas and Valentine's Day. I wish I found the tutorial before Christmas.
