look cool this Fall/Winter... for the price of $2 (inspired by the Knotted Loop Scarf by Country Road!)
got the XL Men’s tee from a discount store for just $2. The scarf was inspired by a scarf of a similar design by Country Road. I'm quite sure it's from Country Road because I've seen it in the shop. But I just can't find a picture of it online!

It seems to be really well-liked here because I’ve seen 2 people in my class wearing it. But this is something that I am making for a friend of mine. Oh, oh and this is the very first project that I did with my NEW Elna Sew Fun sewing machine!!! All right, enough with that introduction and monologue. Let’s get on with the tutorial! :D

Image of the Country Road Scarf above is from here:This is what this scarf was inspired by:
Knotted Loop Scarf by Country Road for their A/W 2010 Collection.
