Summery Cute Flower Scarf

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 get the size I need for the scarf, I sewed 2 pieces together.

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!)

Then I twisted it and let it dry overnight.

Once it's dry, give it a shake and knot it around your neck!
So fun!

  14. Thanks for an easy and cute pattern!

  15. What is the name of the foot you used when zigzagging the edge of the fabric so it wouldn't fray too much? I'm a beginner. Thanks! :)

  16. It's hard to tell from the picture but I would use a rolled hem foot, it makes a beautiful edge that doesn't fray at all, useful for those chiffons that never stop raveling! Can anyone tell me how to make the knot that was used in the picture?

    1. Annette, it's really easy to make the knot! Fold the scarf in half and then wrap it around your neck. Take the two ends and slip them through the loop at your neck. Pull tight and that's it!


I love to hear from you! Please leave me a note!
