Got 10 minutes?

then you can make this...

it's "sew" simple...

I began with this adorable fabric I found at Hobby Lobby...
(it comes in white and black too!)
it's a ruffled knit... I purchased one yard...

you will only need scissors, needle and matching thread...

carefully cut between two ruffles-
as close as possible to the edge of one ruffle...

I chose to cut in sections of three ruffles-
this allowed me to make three scarfs
and have extra for the ends...

cut the "extra" ruffle into desired length...
(to gather and sew to each end of the scarf)
stitch down the center and gently pull to create a gather...

then attach to each end of the scarf...
stitching along the same stitch used to create the gathered ruffle...

now both ends have a finished edge with fun little ruffle!

and you are ready to enjoy your happy "ruffle scarf"!
you can even accessorize it with a pin or one of my FAVORITES-
from my sweet friend Diana of FrontNcenter designs- her convertables!-
you can wear them as a headband or clip!

and the extra scarfs you made can be wrapped-up
to give as a delightful Valentine gift!

just a little something that's "sew" simple...
yet very thoughtful!

Have a wonderful weekend!
Many Blessings!

  8. Adorable!!! I actually saw that same fabric last week and loved it but was not sure what to use it foe besides a skirt for my daughter, I am so excited to make some for vday gifts!!!

  9. Oh, I really wish it were simple to the sewing-impaired, because that is just about the cutest scarf ever, in the best color! And I love the pins - great job!!

  11. I should have taken Home Ec in school. I'm sewing impaired too and it looks so simple but makes no sense to me at all. Instead I took Independent Living and Typing classes -- I'm quite independent and my fingers can fly across the keyboard! :) Great scarves and love that convertable by Diana. Have a happy Saturday. Blessings, Tammy
