Scarf Along Tutorial

Do you know someone who would love a handmade gift from you this Christmas? Look at this fun and funky scarf DIY project by Heather Mattos.  What a great way to use up your scraps--if you don't have any, let me know and I'll hook you up!  What have you DIY'd today?

Who wouldn’t adore the gift of a cozy, handmade scarf this holiday season? This is an inexpensive and fun sewing project that can be done in an afternoon, leaving you with three happy, handmade gifts- just like that! Don’t let the math scare you away… it really is a simple {precise} tutorial, made up of lots of straight lines, and appropriate even for beginners.

You’ll need:

•self-healing mat

•large ruler/straight-edge

•rotary cutter (fresh blade!)


•sewing machine





•steam iron

•{6} half-yard cuts in different patterns to make 3 scarves. The busier, the better! For this particular method, I think it looks so much better to mix and match funky, bright patterns, rather than using anything close to solid.

•{1} yard of pom-pom trim. (This is a great resource for trims.)
