15 Minute Plaid Blanket Scarf

glam-plaid-shawlNot only are all things tartan and plaid trendy right now, but so are blanket scarves! So why not combine the two to help you stay warm this winter? You can sew up this Glam Plaid Blanket Scarf in just 15 minutes. And it’s an easy DIY for sewing beginners.

red-plaid-flannelI am a chronic fabric remnant shopper (and hoarder!). I recently came across a this lovely red plaid flannel in the remnants at Joann’s and had to have it! An entire yard for $2.50!

Since remnant sizes do tend to vary I did double check the size. It was indeed 44″ x 36″. A yard is all you need to create this blanket scarf. Cut the fabric into two 18″ x 36″ strips.

seams-hemsLay the strips of fabric on top of one another with the right sides facing each another. Stitch together one of the short ends with a 1/4″ seam.

Iron and stitch a 1/4″ hem along the long ends of the scarf. (This is my favorite tip for ironing a quick and even hem!)

fringeGently pull out ~10-15 horizontal threads from each end of the scarf to create a fringe along the edges.

vintage-diamond-buttonsAdd a few vintage-looking buttons and the blanket scarf will be complete! Drape the scarf around your shoulders to decide where best to place the buttons along one edge of the fabric.

15-minute-glam-blanket-scarfHowever it is worn, it is sure to be warm and snugly. And plaid is definitely on trend and fashionable right now! Quick, easy, and trendy! It doesn’t get any better than that!

I'm a shameless fabric collector too, and I've bought it before for no particular purpose - just that I fell in love with the colors and patterns and knew I'd find something to do with it one day. I adore this project! It looks so warm and cozy. And, I love how quick and easy it is to make. I think the vintage buttons are a perfect accent. Now I really want to head to the fabric store...
