Big, Billowy, Reversible Scarf!

Recently I bought a cute infinity scarf (a giant circle you twist and wrap instead of a scarf with two ends) with sequin stripes on it. It's adorable, but there's a problem. There's always at least a medium portion of the "wrong" side showing to the world! Not cool. So I decided to make some reversible scarves so each side looks... cool.

Here's my first one! It was way easy because I found some fantastic fabric that was beautiful on either side, so I didn't have to do 2 layers! It is soft silvery grey on one side, and a more shimmery gold on the other. It goes with everything! I did some mock flat-fell seams that I was so proud of myself for, so that no ugly seams are poking out. I made it wider than my inspiration-scarf so it would be more billowy. It worked! Here's a picture of me modeling it- if you see it big you'll see the 2 different colors better.

This one is me checking out some boots I was trying on while I'm shopping, but gives you another peek of how the scarf lays.
Future scarves will feature bolder patterns and color combinations. Wee! I'm excited!
