Valentine's Day infinity scarf

Sew, Mama, Sew is having a Little Gifts of Love Challenge. So I made a little gift for myself...a heart day infinity scarf. (My 7-year-old son served as photographer for this photo shoot, and I think he did a great job!)

There are so many tutorials out there and I can't even find the one I originally used. I've made so many at this point I don't need the instructions anymore. If you want to make your own, there's a good tutorial here. I usually use knit fabric but for this one I used a lightweight cotton fabric I bought at Joann's several years ago. I can't remember exactly why I purchased it, but I think I had this crazy idea I was going to make Valentine's Day candy bags for my son's daycare class. Yeah...didn't happen.

See...some days I do make an effort...cute skinny jeans and boots, trendy (from a few years ago) turquoise/red color combo, actually wearing earrings. I also just colored my hair to cover the gray. I was feeling a little crazy at Target and went with medium auburn...it's pretty red. I'm not sure what my husband is going to think of that. I was sucked in by the claims of 100% gray coverage and the "promise" of looking 10 years younger. I'm not really 27...I just look like it. :)

And of course there is dog poop on the ground right behind me. Figures.  Happy Valentine's Day!
