Easy Scarf with What I Wore

Black, White, Red (2)

Top: Black and White Refashion Shirt, Scarf: handmade, Pants: Target, Purse: handmade by my Sister-in-law, Red Bracelets: ??? Can’t remember it’s been 7 years…. Red Shoes: American Eagle, purchased from DI

Red Sunglasses

And for my fun part, Red Sunglasses from Amazon, Coat from Wal-Mart.

So that scarf? I decided when I was getting dressed I needed a red scarf. Wanna know how easy that is to make?

Make a Ruffle Scarf copy

Cut a piece of fabric 5-6” strips, and sew the strips together to get around 90”-120” in length. If it’s knit, that’s it, if it’s gonna fray, finish the edges. Sew down the middle with elastic for shirring it. Then, sew right next to that line again.

Scarf Sharpie tip copy

Want a great tip? With a scarf, you don’t want the elastic coming through, and you don’t want to keep adjusting your scarf to hide the white. So, color it with a matching sharpie! Voila!

If you want a more detailed tutorial for the ruffled scarf, here’s a good one at Made. Easy Peasy, especially with knit fabric and a rotary cutter!

Pin It!
