Mormon Mom Skirt - to - Summer Scarf

August, you’ve come so soon. I don’t mind though. I know summertime is full of BBQ’s, sunny afternoons, warmness, swimming pools, yard sales, ice cream, rooftop bars, summer dresses, lake trips, beach trips, weekend getaways, lemon drops….lots and lots of lemon drops. And tons of other fun crap…but for me summer has not been good…it has not been good at all. 

I’ve been so busy with homework (yes…summer classes…the worst classes…too…cooooompressed), working full-time (although I do this year-round), weekends stuck doing research for law cases (a word from the not-so-wise…DON’T TAKE A BUSINESS LAW CLASS IN A 8 WEEK SUMMER TERM!), and Facebook creeping/hating on my friends who are actually having a California-like-picturesque summer.

Even though I’ve been leaving like the pale kids from the cartoon Recess…I did have time to make the most hideous “Mormon-mom” (NO OFFENSE TO ACTUAL MORMON MOM’S…my best friend Dana, a Mormon herself gave it that name), into an awesome breezy summer scarf (the likes of which I shall not wear for lack of actually going outside).

When I say I’m craftarded….I REALLY MEAN IT. But this was so easy. No sewing just scissors.  
And there you have it...easy as pie...never mind pie is so hard to make...easy as apple. You don't have to bake an apple.

I know, I totally freaked out a little when I realized it's already August, and soon the weather will be getting cooler! ACK! Haha I can't think like that though, there's so much more of summer to enjoy yet! :)

I've never heard of doing that, but what a great idea!!! I have a Mormon mom so I'm sure there is something that I could raid in her closet! Haha!

That is such a fabulous idea! I love the way it transforms that horrid tropical fabric into something really cute and trendy!

Count me in the craftarded category, too -- I totally suck when it comes to creative projects.

Rosy you are so hilarious. Sorry to hear that you are having a less-than-summery kind of summer :( But it's almost over!!!! so have another lemon drop or two! :)

Your easy as apple Mormon scarf is super amazing! I like the skirt by itself, but I like it in scarf form too!
