I love the ruffle scarfs that are in style right now.
But I can't bring myself to spend $25 or more
on a long strip of fabric...
No matter HOW ruffly it is.
Luckily, it's ridiculously easy to make one.
I didn't want to worry with hemming it,
so I used a knit fabric that wouldn't ravel.
[Make sure that you cut the fabric a foot longer
than you want it to be in the end...
The ruffles will make it shorten.]
Then, with elastic thread in my bobbin,
I sewed 5 lines through the length of the fabric:
I ironed it to make the elastic shrink...
The whole thing took about 5 minutes,
and resulted in this:
It would make a lovely [and easy!] handmade Christmas gift!
