EASY LOOP SCARF: from normal to infinity scarf

My very lovely floral printed scarf is one of my favorites because it perfectly matched a few solid-colored summer dresses. But then I refashioned the yellow and coral dresses into two color block skirts, and now, I’m not sure whether I can still pair the scarf with the skirts. Too many colors? Too many patterns? I don't know.

IS THE SCARF TOO BUSY FOR MY NEW COLOR-BLOCK SKIRTS?

Refashioning the floral scarf into an infinity scarf was pretty easy. I used a piece of white lace from my stash and sewed zig zag stitches on the edges to prevent fraying too much. I don't work with lace that much so my knowledge on lace is pretty limited. Anyway, I then matched the lace edge to the scarf edge and sewed a zig zag stitch.

ZIG ZAG STITCH ON THE LACE EDGE

I fell in love with the floral scarf all over again now that it’s a beautiful infinity scarf! The length is perfect, and I still love the style and simplicity of an infinity scarf. I think the lace block creates an extra oomph to an ordinary floral scarf. I am so happy to figure out a very simple way to turn ordinary scarves into infinity scarves.

A NEW INFINITY SCARF! SWEET!
