Trash to Treasure Thriftstore Find Part Two

If you're a follower of my blog, you remember that I made a purse from some thrift store finds. Some wool material and a white cotton sweater. Here it is to remind you. After having carried it a few times, I'm disappointed that I didn't put some fusible fleece in the purse to make the sides a bit sturdy. It is a bit floppy for my taste.

There were still some material and sweater parts left over, so what did I do with them you ask?
{I know you were wondering...}

Tonight, I took the leftovers and chopped them into a bunch of squares.

and turned them into a scarf to match the bag. Cute model, no? {The scarf is for me, not him.}
I put a magnetic catch behind the vintage buttons to connect the two ends while it is on. Can't wait to wear it!
