I'm loving all of the pretty, light scarves out for spring this year! But paying a lot for a simple scarf? NO WAY! So I found this really pretty textured fabric from a thrift store for $2- and it's actually an old curtain!
Then I cut small 2" x 18" strips of fabric for the ruffles. I used 2 strips for each ruffle by layering 2 pieces on top of each other.
To make ruffles the easy way, I thread my machine with white thread on the top and elastic string in the bobbin. (For more thorough instructions on how to create ruffles, see my winter scarf post where I explain everything in detail.)
Layering 2 strips on top of each other, I sewed each strip along the middle to create the ruffle. Once all the ruffles were done, I pinned them to the scarf.
Then I switched my machine back to normal thread and a normal stitch width to sew the ruffles to the scarf.
