Upcycled Chevron Infinity Scarf

  Upcycled Chevron Infinity Scarf (4)

Recently a friend of mine asked if I could make something for her daughter.  
She had saved her daughter’s keepsake blanket from when she was a little girl.

I was so honoured to be trusted with this project.  
And I think that this Chevron Infinity Scarf turned out fabulous!

I began by cutting a section of the fabric into a long strip about 6 inches by 8 feet.  The blanket was well loved and faded so I thought that it needed a pop of pattern and colour.

 I used a template that I cut out of card stock for the chevron print.

    Then I painted the pattern onto the fabric using acrylic paint mixed with a fabric paint medium.

 I chose grey and teal blue colours.  I love the way they contrast each other.

 The brushstrokes give it a unique, hand crafted look.

I hope that she likes it!
