Sewing Saturday

When I saw this tutorial on Make It and Love It, I knew I had to make one! This was so fun. It's being modeled by my daughter, but it's all for me! I'm wearin' it tomorrow to church. :)

Just a couple of tips if you decide to make one:

1. You need 2.5 yards of knit fabric to get the length. The scarf is 80" long and with the bit that you cut off from the end (15") you can cut your ruffle pieces. And with your 2.5 yards you can make 4 of these scarves with a small amount of fabric leftover.

2. I cut the ruffle strips to be 1" instead of 3/4".

3. After sewing around the scarf, I trimmed the edges just a bit to give it a more finished look.

I'm still a total beginner with the sewing machine so if I can make this, anyone can!
