A long strip of lightweight fabric (Mine was 10" x 46")
Needle and thread
Small piece of felt
Small piece of felt
Take your long strip of fabric and hem up the edge using a gathering stitch.
Do the same to the other side...
...and down the middle.
Because the fabric is so lightweight, it will automatically gather. If you want it even more gathered, do so now before stitching the ends.
And thats it for the scarf! SO easy. Now onto the flower. Cut a long string of fabric and do a gathering stitch on at least one side (I stitched both sides).
Gather one side, so begins to look like a flower. Stitch up the ends.
Next, cut out four small circles (I used a shot glass as a template)
Fold each circle in half right side in. Place one half circle on top of the other (picture below)
Do the same with the third...
...and fourth circle. Be sure that they are layered in a way that a quarter of all four circles can be seen
Now fold your new, layered circle in half twice, getting a quarter of it.
Then take a needle and thread and hand sew the bottom corner, going through all circles.
And vuala! The center of your flower is complete. If you'd like, you can glue the wrong sides together, so they don't show as much.
Cut a small piece of felt and hand sew it to the back of your flower
Then flip it over, and place the center petals where you would like them. Sew that on, and your flower is complete!
Put your scarf on and determine where you want your flower. Sew that on and you have a fabulous new scarf!
Keep in mind that this scarf will not keep you warm. It is purely for fashion and fun! Plus, you can get away with it when it starts to warm up!
