I think you'll agree with me when I say, plaid rocks. It never goes out of style. Ask the Scottish or Welsh! Come on, I know you secretly have a section of plaid shirts in your closet, and you wiped away tears when the trend went away in the 90's. Plaid was hated for a bit after its overuse in the 90's, but deep inside we were all waiting for an excuse to break out our secret stash of flannel.
No? You don't wear flannel? Lies! I bet you sleep on flannel sheets.
Something I love more than plaid? Infinity scarves. I have a moderate collection of infinity scarves, mostly knitted solid prints like black, grey, and mustard yellow. Infinity scarves are expensive too, J. Crew sells them for $45, Gap for about $30, and American Apparel for $28. I just think this is too much money for something I could make myself.
The other day I started wishing for a plaid infinity scarf. I thought to myself, where could I find one? Better yet, let's just get some fabric and make my own and blog about it! I went to my local JoAnne's, found some plaid prints that were cute enough, and went to the service counter to get the fabric measured. I completely forgot it was the Friday before Halloween...I walked into a swarm people waiting in line. The line was 40 people deep, no joke. I put my fabric down and walked out. No way do I have the patience to stand in line for 2 hours to get 1 yard of fabric cut. By this time I was really jones-ing for a plaid circle scarf, so I got to thinking... my BF has a bunch of plaid PJs he never wears... I can save a buck, cut them up and sew my own infinity scarf!
