DIY fail...

Okay, so, you know those DIYs that you have perfectly planned in your head and they turn out to be way more effort than you're interested in investing? Please tell me I'm not alone on this one...

Well, last year (yes, last YEAR) I decided to start crocheting a large blanket for a throw at the bottom of my bed.  I was going for a Pottery Barn look-a-like, warm, fuzzy, totes-pretty throw.  Crocheting has never interested me (and still doesn't), but I thought I would give it a go.  I only got about 8 inches into the blanket before I decided that I wasn't into it and put it away in a box.

I recently found my (barely) started blank, and being the resourceful (read: crochet-lazy) person that I am, I decided to turn it into a scarf! All it required was sewing two large tortoiseshell colored buttons at the bottom of one end to make a faux infinity scarf.  I was pleasantly surprised that my failed DIY actually turned out quite nice!

Keepin' it real with my fail DIY :)
