If you haven't noticed the scarf trend, you're living under a rock! They're everywhere! You can never have too many scarves, right?
I wanted another springy one, so I found this really pretty linen floral fabric and measured out enough for a scarf. I like mine to be about 70" x 8" so they hang to just the right spot. And yes, I do use a pen to mark my fabric. I know this is horrible, but I've been doing it for years. Time to invest in a fabric pencil!
To keep the edges from unraveling, I used a running stitch along the long edges of the fabric. I just discovered this special foot just for this purpose and it worked really well to keep the fabric in place.
Here's my stitches. I love the small amount of unraveling to add some texture, but not too much that it falls apart.
Then I cut some pretty white lace for the edges and sewed them to the scarf.
Now here's the fun part! In order to get the crinkled look, I lightly rinsed my scarf in cool water. (I know I read about doing this on another blog, but I can't remember where. Let me know if it was you!)
