I am somewhat nostalgic and I like being comfortable. So, I decided to combine the two for this contest to create a scarf with a cushion look to resemble an old-timey arm chair.
I’m also very thrifty and like re-using things that I have lying around, like the over-sized men’s shirt that I made this scarf and flapper hat out of.
This scarf is incredibly warm and comfortable. When wearing it, it brings back memories of cuddling on the sofa in front of my grandmother’s fireplace with a teacup full of colorful mini-marshmallows .
