This should be called Part II of my Homemade Christmas ideas. Along with the place mats I wanted to make something extra and what’s better than a scarf!
I think almost every girl loves a new scarf to help accessorize their outfits. I do! I bought some grey knit fabric on clearance back in the summer and I still hadn’t used it for anything. I thought the light weight comfy material would work well turned into a scarf. I searched all over in the craft blog world and didn’t come up with much. Don’t get me wrong, there are some pretty fantastic scarf ideas out there but nothing that jumped out at me for my sister-in-law.
This was a very simple project.
What you’ll need:
* 1 yard fabric cut in (2) pieces, lengthwise
* Coordinating thread
I don’t have specific step-by-step directions and I didn’t take exact measurements. This project is so simple I’ll just give you a run of how to do it.
Pin the (2) pieces together that you just cut and sew at one end, creating your typical scarf when you drape it around your neck.
Put it on and find a good length for yourself (the scarf should meet your mid to upper thighs). I had to cut roughly 20″ off from each end making the scarf roughly 60+ inches long. Approx. 30+ inches for each rectangle.
Exact measurements? Nah…you make it the length you think would fit you best.
When you find the length the suits you best sew the other end together creating a big loop. You want the scarf long enough to wrap around your neck a couple of times.
If you have a serger you and finish off the seams like this:
No serger? No problem. With your fabric being a knit the raw edges tend to roll up anyway and it doesn’t fray so skip this step if you’d like!
And the scarf wouldn’t be complete with out a little flower pin.
Here’s the scarf on my sister….wrapped around her neck, twice, with an added flower 🙂
