- fabric scraps in colors you like together
- some ribbon (maybe also scraps)
- needle & thread or a sewing machine
Sadly I don’t have that much great photos of the whole process because I had someone waiting for its scarf and not understanding, why I would need photos! The one above & right is mine, the original, but I don’t have process photos of that one. And I didn’t had time to get a decent pic of the purple one, once it was finished…
But it is really easy to sew this one (and also kind of a version for the lazy sewer aka. me), so you will hopefully still understand what I did.
The first thing you do is to sew all your fabric together to form a long piece.Right side on right side, piece by piece.
At second, fold it over & sew togethee, again left side up. Now you have a tube with both ends open, right? Good!
At last, take one end, fold the fabric a bit inside and then put the other end inside this first end. Sew over all four layers of the fabric at once – this seam will not look that great, and that’s where the ribbon get’s it gig: Lay it on top of the seam, sew again! You will less likely notive a seam on a ribbon then on the fabric (at least if you chose the right color of thread…).
You can see that I added some more ribbons on my (original, above) scarf, just get creative! Here you can use all the little scraps that serve no other purpose – fabric as well as ribbons! Also, of course, you can adjust the length to whatever you want to have :)
Have fun sewing!
