No Sew Scarf Tutorial

Happy Black Friday people.  Were you completely crazy and went out shopping this morning?  I will admit that although I'm not a Black Friday shopper (and couldn't be today as I have to be home with my kids) I did take advantage of my local Wal-Mart (which is the only real store near us) and shopped the midnight deals!  Our store is open 24 hours so I went in about 9:30 to get some other things I needed and grab what I could for the sale that started at 12:01 AM! I'm a night person so this worked really well for me.  The sad thing is I really went more just because I love being out in the middle of the night  and wasn't all that interested in to many of the things on sale.  BUT I did get a couple gifts.... OKAY I got myself a little something too (Sex and the city 2, which I haven't seen yet, was a steal!).  

I could not believe the manners on some people.  I'm not apposed to getting in a crowd to get what you need, but the woman ahead of me in a crowd kept screaming that if one more person bumped into her she was going to go off.  Seriously, lady if your reading this, your in a crowd of people on Black Friday Morning, you knew what you were getting into.  I took it upon myself to be overly cheerful to everyone in hopes it might be contagious. 

I would love to hear your Friday morning adventures!

But first, a little something for those of you looking for handmade gift ideas on a small budget with very limited tools!


Have a fashionista on your holiday shopping list?  Maybe you need something new and fun to wear on a very small budget?  How about a fun, no sew scarf you can make in less than 30 minutes and can be worn many different ways!
What you need-
Jersey Knit fabric (the stuff they make t-shirts out of)
Scissors
The ability to tie a knot

Cut your fabric into a square (mine was 44 inches).  Fold the fabric in half diagonally to make a triangle. Starting at the tip of the triangle cut slits about .5 inch wide and 3 inches long keeping your scissors straight up and down (parallel with point) all the way up.
Tie each strip (back and front together) with one knot.
When you get to the end you will have a couple inches you could not cut.  Tie one knot in the end.
Repeat on other side from tip to end.  The look can be completely different depending on your knit fabric so have fun with it!  Enjoy!


You can chill with our source of tiffany earring & unsecured loans. Out store contains different kinds of zodiac watches & festina watches, all are shifted to upper invicta watches of the building.
