***Update: The Felt Flower Scarf Tutorial is now available!!***
You know what fits in your last little bit of pregnancy? NOTHING!
Don't get me wrong, I'll squeeze my swollen sausage-y self into those maternity pants if I have to, but I'm not going to like it, and I'm not going to be comfortable. Good thing those sweet babies are worth every single second of it all!
So what's a girl to do to feel like she's still making an effort at "getting ready?" Is there a magical pair of earrings you throw on? Or does slapping some lip gloss on do it for you? I try to avoid making direct eye contact with my puffy limbs and face for the last few months of pregnancy, (I swell people... in the Michelin kind of way) so I figured I'd try making a scarf to take the focus off my "swell." :)
Thus, the felt flower scarf!
I bought 3/4 yard of felt at Joann's for 50% off. It was more than double of what I ended up using, so I figure this scarf cost me a little less than $1.50. Plus! Yep, there's more. (I know, I really should have focused my career on info-mercials.) I can still wear it after the baby comes! Love me an inexpensive accessory!
So, go get some felt and make yourself a fun scarf! I plan to do at least one more... of every color available. It's good to be rational about your crafting and accessory needs. :)
