Flowery Infinity Scarf

I really liked the flower pattern on one of the pieces of fabric I got to make my alphabet magnets a few months ago, but wasn’t sure what I could do with it until I ran across a nice lightweight blue fabric on the red tag sale at Joann’s the other day.

There will definitely be more to come.
