After Visiting New York the other day... i realized how extremely cold and miserable you could be without the right accessories.. My ide a of cold must haves were a tiny scarf and an ok jacket... Boy was i wrong.. While there i talked to my cold weather veteran friends.. They had everything you need.. big scarf.. gloves, earmuffs, facecover, etc etc.. of course while there i was already thinking on my entrance for this contest.. my idea was a gloves, scarf and ipad holder.. but after talking to them they gave me a couple of suggestions of their ultimate accessory.. they wanted a purse.. one that would resist make up spills etc..
Also my idea of a scarf was way off.. and i also realized that i need some kinda face cover and earmuffs.. it was painfully cold and not covering these really hurt..
So i went back to the drawing board.. i was gonna mix all of the accessories into 1.. i wanted something that you would grab on your way out and not worry if you forgot something... also i wanted something with detachable earmuffs.. 1 because my friend almost lost hers so they need to be attachable.. 2 because they get annoying so i wanted to have the option of putting them away...
Finally while looking for a base for my earmuff... i found a pair of bluetooth headphones that definetly needed to be worked into this project :)
2.5 yards of Material.. i like this plated material
1 small piece of blizzard or microfiber fleece
1 Small piece of pleather or some kinda fabric that wont stain easly
1 Bag of oversized buttons
Headphones or some kinda frame for your earmuffs
1 - in separating sport zipper
Step 1: Measure and cut your fabric
So anyways i went home and used my existing scar to measure how much fabric i was gonna use.. for my experience i know i needed at least 2 scarfs up north.. so i doubled the thickness of my scarf when cutting the material.. also i wanted this scarf to go around my face and still hang low so i could have an ipad holder or a purse if a girl is to use this..
so i actually ended up using the 2/ 1/2 yards.. however, this may vary on each person.. depends how tall you are etc.. so i suggest you cut the thickness of your fabric.. then put it around your neck at least once... then decide where to cut it.. remember is better to have extra than have too little
