I love the sharp contrast between the scarf material and the embroidery. What a great way to get a new look out of something you already have!

Quite different scarf, yet I would like to try the tutorial for sewing this project. Using yarn for stitching design on fabric is new to me.

I love big scarves like this one! They are perfect for turning jeans and a plain top into a full-fledged outfit. I also love the colors of this one.
