How to Make a Ruffled Scarf & Northern Cottage Party Time Tuesday - 3

northern cottage red ruffle scarf

I’ve been on a sewing kick as of late

(now remember I don’t know what I’m doing in the sewing department but have been playing and putting things together with the very limited skills I currently possess!!)

Getting a bit more comfortable but not expecting professional quality results…yet!

It’s FUN to play though!


I started off with a recent fabric purchase…

this red and white polka dot knit fabric

how fun!

my fabric was quite wide so I just cut two strips across the whole thing equal to the length that I wanted my scarf to end up to be.

Putting right side of the fabric together
(I know – it seems wrong but it is the correct way for this scarf!)

I pinned & stitched the long sides together

I pulled the fabric taut as I sewed the edge with a zig-zag stitch…

when released - the edges curled into this flouncy ruffled edge.

I intentionally wanted it to be a bit raggedy and due to this being my first try {ha!} I succeeded!

But..It needed a little

somethin’ somethin’

so I added this little eyelet trim

Whip one up for yourself and snuggle up to head outside to play!
