So scarf week is over. Bah. While I normally get pretty darn bored with doing the same type of project over and over or working around a theme, I really, really liked this particular challenge. Perhaps it was the company I kept in Thalita from The Learner Observer, Vanessa from Tried & True and Lauren from The Thinking Closet.
The blogosphere is a big world. Huge really. So I was really glad to get to “meet” two bloggers who I had visited on occasion but didn’t really “know”. Because all three of these ladies are wicked creative, totally awesome and very kind. Not only do I have a stash of new and totally awesome scarves to rock this fall, but I also have two blogs to add to my Bloglovin’ of religiously followed writers. Like I said, win – win!
But I didn’t get to typing today to get all sappy with you but to finish up Scarf Week, because even good things must come to an end! Let’s get all clip show and take a look back at the fab creations Scarf Week inspired…

Beginner sewist? No problem! Knock out a fab, boho turban/scarf headband! Sew Easy Turban Headband Video Tutorial at The Thinking Closet.
Tie Dye forever! Isn’t this infinity scarf fab? It totally reminds me of the sky. Make your own, From Tee Shirt to Tie Dyed Infinity Scarf by The Thinking Closet.
Neon is totally hot and the accessories you find can be totally inexpensive or way too teenage appropriate for most of us to rock. So knock out a neon (or not so neon if you aren’t a fan of the brightness) Neon Fringed Infinity Scarf by yours truly.
Love the idea of rocking a cowl? I’ve never actually tried wearing one so going DIY for my first is a fab idea. And with it being so hot sweaters are crazy cheap at thrift shops right now making this project a must do now! Super Simple Cowl from Tried & True.
Everyone in my family loves word searches. One of the things left behind by my Poppa when he passed was a half finished book of word searches that will probably always stay with my family as a keepsake. So when I saw this scarf/bandanna from Lauren it really struck a chord with me… Stamped Word Search Scarf Video Tutorial by The Thinking Closet.
Veggie stamping is pretty darn cool! See how to make roses out of celery! Celery Stamped Floral Design Scarf by this gal.
One of my favorite projects to be born from this adventure are THESE sandals. I told Thalita and I’ll tell you, I envision myself feeling like a fairy princess in these. For reals, y’all! Tie Up Scarf Sandals by The Learner Observer.
Functional things can also be cute – just check out this way more awesome than an every day black camera strap… Scarf Turned Camera Strap by The Learner Observer.
Ba-ba-ba-bling! Buy a cheap scarf and bling it up. And not have the crystals adhere to your dryer, either! Easy Bling Scarf by me.
I think this scarf may have been the most popular of all I shared on my Facebook Page. I guess you guys love tee shirt yarn and why the heck wouldn’t you? Also, that green is fab. 15 Minute Tee Shirt Yarn Infinity Scarf by The Thinking Closet.
I totally started working on a scarf very much like this one, just in different colors for Scarf Week but Vanessa’s was so awesome that I just set mine to the side and started working on a Plan B scarf! See how to make these adorable tassels and rock them out on a scarf. Aren’t the colors amazing? Make Your Own Tassel Scarf with Tried & True.

Another one of my favorites, this bleached song lyric scarf is both awesome looking and personally meaningful. I totally dig projects like that! Get the deets: Love Song Bleached Scarf by Tried & True.
