This morning I paid a visit to Denver Fabrics with my friends Rachel Oh! I fell in love with the bargain tables. Denver Fabrics has a room full of tables that have fabric “remnants” (some are 3 yards) at huge discounts. I went in for scarf fabric and left with four others. I found this pretty pink plaid that I thought could be warm in winter, but not too heavy for summer (it’s a really light-weight woven cotton). I already had thread, ribbon, and a button, so this scarf cost me less than $6 to make!
- Fabric (you will need a strip that is 96 inches or 8 feet long and 17 inches wide—I cut the fabric in strips and sewed them end to end) If you buy 42" wide fabric, you will need to buy 1 and 1/3 yard. If you buy 60 inch wide fabric, you will need to buy 1 yard.
- 4+ feet of 3/4 inch ribbon
- Sewing machine/thread
- Button (mine is 1.5 inches in diameter)
***I chose a plaid, because I didn’t have to really measure. I just folded and cut based on the pattern of the plaid. Measurements are simply a guideline.***
- Begin by cutting/making a strip that is 17 inches wide and 96 inches long.
- Lay fabric right side down. Fold ends of fabric in about 1/2 inch.
