This is Marlee. She is my student and babysitter and she's super creative and a talented artist.
Last week I was admiring my friend Suzanne's scarf. It's an "infinity scarf" which you probably know means it has no end; it's just a giant tube. I love the concept because you don't have to tie it or have it come undone or do anything fussy with it.
Marlee came in to class wearing one this week and I said: "I WANT ONE OF THOSE!" And then she told me her trick, which is to make them by cutting a piece of an XL soft t-shirt and then doubling it around your neck. I not-so-subtly mentioned that I REALLY WANTED ONE and the next day she delivered. That's Marlee for you.
Just think of the possibilities! All of your old soft shirts that you don't wear anymore, even old sweaters, or buy cheap t-shirts and cut them off under the arm pits, and voila. Cute scarf.
