I had a list of things to look for at the store. One of them was a pashmina-type scarf so that I could try this tutorial at Design Fixation. You have to go see this, it's genius. Honestly. I found one in blue that I thought would work.
You snip the fringes off the scarf, fold it in half, and sew partway up what would be the right hand side in that photo. Then you hem the rough edge where the fringes used to be. That's all.
Or you can just play around with it. There are videos at the website.
I was looking for a hat, and I found one for a dollar.
