ruffle scarf

Vera ruffled scarf $35.
$32 scarf from Anthropology. Very cute!

These are two I made for less than $5 each. No, I didn't show my face :) I'm not a model! Mine are made from a knit fabric unlike the Anthropology one. But a very similar look. I made mine from a tutorial on Hope Studios. Hope studios shows several ways to wear the scarf. These can be made in about 10 minutes.


  1. Wow. This looks fabulous and really easy. I think I will make one too. Thanks for the info.

  2. I made one tonight and unfortunately it did not turn out. I think the knit fabric I chose was too heavy because it didn't bunch up as much as the ones in the pictures. Also, I had a hard time finding elastic thread. I could only find it in one brand and only in four colors. So, the color of my elastic thread didn't match my fabric color and it showed up when the scarf would spin around and show the back side. Also the regular thread was really loose around the elastic thread so it looked really bad on the backside. This only cost be $5 in supplies so it's not a huge loss, but I'd still like to make it again and hopefully correct some of these mistakes. Do you have any tips that could help me out the second time around? Thanks!
