Sewing Project: Boy's Scarf with Monogram

I was feeling fiesty and made this without a pattern.  It isn't perfect, but it is warm and my son loves it!  It is just a long rectangle afterall.  I'm not going to bother detailing how I made it.

He wanted something since his sister was getting all my castoff mistakes...

Green is his favorite color.  You might recognize that strip of yellow from the ottomon covers. The end of the scarf tucks in behind it. The leaf fabric is from Joann's where one of the staff members clearly disapproved of my choice in fabric and said, twice, "Wow.  That is busy."  I just laughed at her and said, "I'm not afraid of pattern."  Given her fresh ensemble of khakis, nurse shoes and polo shirt I wasn't going to give her fashion opinions too much weight...
