From Trash to a Scarf

As we all do, I have a bag of stuff that is destined to go to Goodwill/thrift store.
I added a super cute jacket to the bag recently. It was Danika's jacket last year and it is just to small now. It is the cutest thing ever and I was really sad to get rid of it. it had a hole in the collar also.

So I decided to make it into a cute little scarf for Danika.

I cut about 5 inches off the bottom of the jacket.
Then I carefully (this is a knitted jacket and it started falling apart when I cut it) turned the piece inside out and stitched it closed, leaving a hole to turn it right side out.

I took three buttons off the jacket and sewed the on one end of the scarf.

The other side of the scarf had a button hole already so it worked out perfectly.
I can put it on her tight, loose and very loose.

Now the cute little jacket can still be cute, just in a different way!
And Danika will stay warm too.
