So, I realized that today is only the fourth leap day I’ve encountered in my life. Wow, I’m young.
Anywho, in honor of leap day, I decided to make a scarf. Not that scarves have anything to do with February 29th, but I just needed a way to segway into my project.
Now, I didn’t exactly “make” the scarf. What I did was simply add a little creativeness to an otherwise plain article of clothing.
This is all you need.
I got the scarf from Target and the fabric markers from Walmart. Pretty simple.
Then, I chose one of my favorite quotes from Shakespeare, “This above all: to thine own self be true.” All I did was write out the quote on the scarf, and voila!
After trying it on, I realized it needed a little something more. So I, being not the most artistically-talented person on the planet, just drew on some little twirls to give it some depth while wearing it.
Like I said, not super artistic. But hey, at least I tried!
The final product:
It actually turned out better than I expected. I think it gives a little bit of a twist to the look of a plain scarf, and the scarf I chose is long enough to also be a beach wrap in the summer. Also, I’d recommend letting the fabric paint dry overnight before wearing. The paint I used dried pretty fast, but you definitely don’t want to chance it.
Hope you guys like it!
