How to Cut a Blanket Scarf in Half

I love wearing blanket scarves in the fall and winter time, but they can be so bulky and a bit overwhelming! My solution for that is to just cut them in half! It still creates the look of a blanket scarf, but it eliminates half of the bulk! It’s so easy!!! The scarf I used for this tutorial is only $9.99 and comes in a variety of different colors. (I have the scarf in Plaid Blue)

  1. Lay your scarf out flat on the floor. For the tutorial shown, my scarf was sized at 55″ for all the edges.
  2. This is a little intimidating, but you can do it! Cut the scarf in half diagonally! Go slow and use fabric scissors if you have them. If you don’t have them, use your sharpest scissors!
  3. You should have 2 equal halves! If it isn’t perfect, don’t worry! The next step will take care of that! 
  4. Take one of your halves and starting at one end, pull up with your fingers gently on the cut edge to cause it to fray slightly. Do the same thing to both of the triangle pieces!
  5. That’s it! Now you have 1 scarf for you and 1 for a friend! These make awesome gifts!!!

    I love your page! Thank you for sharing your cute styles. I have 2 questions for you.
    1. I am a teacher as well, and I find that I wear the same old teacher gear. What’s a quick way to plan for wearing cute but yet functional teacher clothes. I have cute things, but they tend to stay in my closet and come out on the weekends instead of work days.

    2. What is your opinion on wearing white pants when it is not spring? White can be so cute but not sure about the time of year to wear them.

      Thank you so much for following!!!

      1. At the beginning of the calendar year, I turn all my hangers backwards! After I wear an item, I hang it back up with the hanger going the correct way! This is how I make sure that I am wearing everything and not just rewearing the same few items! I also plan my outfits for the week on Sunday while my mind is fresh!!

      2. I think you can wear white pants whenever you want! However, I usually only wear them when it is warmer because it is cold, snowy, and wet in Indiana, and I know I would get them dirty in the winter! Also, most of my tops are spring and summery that go with white pants!
