This easy-to-make, warmy to wear wool scarf was made from a pair of wool pants!
I am going to the thrift store tomorrow to look for a plaid pair of pants - wouldn't a plaid scarf be fun?
Step 1: Materials Needed
Scissors (not shown)
Washing machine, detergent, and dryer (not shown)
Rotary cutter and mat (optional)
Sewing machine (not shown)
Step 2: Felting and Deconstructing Pants
Deconstruct the pants - keeping the largest amount of fabric possible. Use scissors to cut apart the major seams. Remove and either discard, or save for another project, the lining, buttons, and zipper. Wash the fabric with detergent in hot water in your washing machine to "felt" the wool. Dry the fabric in the dryer on your low setting. I place the item to be felted in a pillowcase and tie the pillowcase closed with a knot. If the fabric comes out a bit wrinkled, iron on the wrong side with a press cloth; use steam and the wool setting.
Step 3: Cutting the Scarf
From one pant leg - I was able to cut two strips of material measuring 7" x 31 1/2".
