DIY: Just Fringe It 

As many of you know, I had an amazing photo shoot with Height Goddess last weekend.  I shot a bunch of fabulous looks for their fall line.  One of them included an amazing fringe scarf.  In addition to all of the HG clothing, I wanted it IMMEDIATELY however when I looked it up online, I did not want to pay for that bad boy.  The price took my breath away and made my wallet whimper.

So I decided to take things into my own hands, literally, and make my own fringe scarf.  It was SUPER easy and FREE99.  All you need is a t-shirt, scissors and some man power.

Find an old t-shirt. You can use any size. I am using a solid color but a t-shirt with a print makes a FAB scarf too.Then cut across the shirt right under the pits of the tee. Side note: this should go without saying BUT just in case...please make sure you washed the shirt. If you don't, that's just gross. Start cutting that fringe from the bottom up. It doesn't have to be perfect. You can cut it as long or as short as you want to. The only thing you need to be careful of is cutting them too close together and actually snipping a piece of the fringe off. This will create a hole and throw the whole thing off. After you cut all of them, pull those suckers apart.FINITO! You are done. Put it on and style it up. I am wearing mine at work today and have been getting all sorts of compliments. Take that expensive scarf (I still love you too though)!

What a great idea! As soon as I lose some of this baby fat and can fit into some clothes I MUST give it a try.
