Quick and Easy Scarf

I was in Target on Tuesday.
Now ~imagine a group of angels above me ~singing a chorus af Halleluiahs.
I was there to buy Pull Ups and undies for my soon to be 3 year old! We've been a long time in diapers in our family but the end is here.
Of course, I had to check out the Valentine's Day markdowns.

I found this cute fleece throw for 50% off making it only $2.50.

Would you believe the candy was only 30% off. Target why must you play with me?? You know I bought my peanut m&m's though. Gotta keep up the stash.

I immediately (thanks to all I've learned and discovered from all the great blogs I read) thought that would make cute scarves.

I laid out the throw, with the cute design at the top and bottom, measured about 10 inches from the side and cut all the way up. The reason it was almost 10 inches was because I made sure I didn't cut through one of the hearts or circles.

Just a little project that's great because the girls love their new scarves and it was quick, easy and inexpensive.

I picked up some ear warmers at Walmart too. I'll be sharing how I dress them up with the fleece I have left next week.

I'm linking up to Weekend Bloggy Reading at Serenity Now, I'm Loving It at Tidymom, Friday Link Party at Creation Corner and Weekend Wrap Up Party at I Heart Naptime, Weekend Wrap Up Party at Tatertots and Jello.

What a cute scarf! Very clever! Especially since it was made out of fleece, so no sewing involved. I love it!
