How to Make A Fabric Wrapped Scarf

A simple and stylish way to update your outfit is to add a scarf. When worn with a plain sweater, this scarf adds instant warmth and style.

Let’s make one together!

For the Fabric Wrapped Scarves, you will need:

-1 sheet of fabric measuring 2 yards by 3 inches (length x width)
-2 packages of ribbon or lace (braid), 4-5 yards long each, and 1 yard longer than the length of the fabric you’re working with
-Needle and thread
-Heavy duty scissors or rotary cutter

The DIY Scarf Crafting Process:

  1. Lay one of your pieces of fabric on top of the other, and put a ribbon/lace between the two.
  2. Cut two ribbons/laces so that they meet in the middle, and sew one to each side seam.
  3. Cut the ribbon/lace longer than you would like your scarf to be, cut it approximately 15 inches shorter than the length of your fabric (this is where practice will come into play).
  4. Tie the ends of your ribbon/lace together and trim the ends, leaving a nice lacy edge.
  5. Lay the second piece of fabric on top of the first and repeat steps 1-4
    You should have something that looks like:
  6. Sew all four sides closed except for one long end (see step 9).
  7. Fold in half, sew the long end closed leaving a hole to turn through, then fold over and press open.
  8. Cut two slits, one on each side of the scarf, about 1-2 inches long.
  9. Turn your scarf inside out and slip it through the slit you just cut.
  10. Sew up to the slit you just made and leave a nice open end of your scarf.
  11. Cut two strips from ribbon/lace about 4 inches long, then sew these to either sides of the neck area (the part closest to where you will be wearing it).
  12. Repeat steps 3-11 for the second piece of fabric, and you have yourself a great scarf!
