I am now offering similar scarves in my etsy shop. This will be the last time I will be offering them for sale. Thanks so much everyone!
I took a couple of my favorite projects and combined them into something for me. After all that creating over Christmas for other people, it was fun to make something for myself. Not that I don't enjoy creating for others, of course. I'm sure you know what I mean.
I sewed two long strips of white knit fabric together, one on top of the other, using the method from my tiered ruffle skirt tutorial. I didn't baste them together first because I wanted to stretch the fabric as much as possible when I sewed the edges to make the ruffles. You could also do this with just one piece of fabric. I liked using two, because it makes the scarf warmer, and hides all your stitches from sewing on the ruffled flowers.
The flowers are made the same way as the ones from the ruffle flower leggings. I used pink glass beads instead of pearls so there would be a little pop of color.
Here I am wearing it. I got smart this time and didn't attempt to take a self-portrait that includes my face. Take that, goofy facial expressions!
I'm debating whether I should make one with bright colors. I don't know if it would work with the style of the flowers and such. What do you think?
Check out this post I did for some visuals of how to get the basic scarf. Instead of sewing both ends together like I did in that tutorial, just continue the ruffle stitch along the bottom as well. Another thing I've learned through making a bunch of these is that it's easier to start the ruffling about an inch from the end. My machine tends to "eat" my fabric if I start right at the corner. When I'm done, I just go back and flip the scarf to the other side to get the last inch or so.
