Palm Tree Scarf to Shawl Refash

I was so excited when I found this big and beautiful palm tree scarf for .50 cents! I love the yellow pom-pom edging.
So, this is obviously a super cute scarf all on its own, but summer is coming soon and I’m not too fond of wearing scarfs during the summer, even if they are a lighter material.
I laid out the scarf so that yellow pom-poms are on each side rather than the top and bottom. The pom-poms were around top and bottom, but I was making this into a shawl and the pom-poms would be better on the sides. I cut along the bottom of the laid out scarf to make a new bottom.
I sewed that to make a new bottom hem.
Now onto the sides. I sewed up the pom-poms about 3/4 the way up to make arm holes.
Once the bottom and sides were sewn up I only needed one more thing to complete my scarf. I found the middle and cut all the way up and sewed each side making an opening for the shawl.
Happy Refashioning!!!

I was wondering what you would do with the shawl. I was thinking "wrap-around skirt" but your kimono was a better idea.

Love this idea and the fabric with the pom-poms was fabulous!
