Icon!

After seeing the T-scarfs here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=342502.0 made by the lovely lindsycarranza, I wanted to give it a try! I am in need of scarves for the first time in my life, since this winter I decided I like them for warmth, and also I have a wool coat that is very nice, but is a bit scratchy about the neckline. I have a fun white spotty circle scarf I bought in honor of my little dalmatian dog I have, but it is, well, spotty, and I'd like more to choose from than just that.

I like the look of this style of the above linked t-scarf, but I was wanting something more "fluttery" than just squares or circles could give. I decided that big half-circles might do the trick! I tried it out with my "ugly" jersey fabric first, just to make sure it would go over well, since I have very little black jersey fabric right now!

Half-circle clearly 'eyeballed' on my cutting mat:


Held up!  Looks good.


I cut out several, and pinned them together, but apparently too far staggered, I wanted more 'all ruffles, all the time" than this.


Ah ha! Pinned more closely together, this does the trick! Time to switch to the real fabric!


I ran out of fabric after around 10ish pieces, would it be long enough! I pinned it together and tried it on, risking my neck in the process! Mind those pins, Sy!


Sewed them together with good 'ole stretch stitch, and viola! Ruffle scarf! Even the side that hangs upside down looks good!



If I wear it thrown over my shoulder, it gives a nice "petal" look, I like it.  Note also the In Living Color "Hated It!" tee I threw on for the photo shoot *giggle!*



Fun project, useful to wear, and took me like 20 minutes start-to-finish! I love me some instant gratification. ^_^



Thanks for looking! If Craftster was a movie, those guys would seriously have to give props. Tongue

.

EDIT:  I just can't leave good enough alone! Had to make a rainbow version. Many T-shirts gave up their lives to produce this scarf, RIP!

First I cut the pieces out, and laid them on the carpet to be pinned together:

>_> And puppy.

After stretch-stitching it together, I found that I had actually sewed the pieces with not enough overlap! (Too far apart for "full ruffles"):


So I decided to "ruche" it a little, (Or would this be considered gathering? Tucking? ehhh whatever) Like so:



And the result was good!  Here's a pic of the ruched area showing:


And not showing!


And here's another gratuitous picture of my puppy:  ( I can't HELP it, he was being adorable all over my project! There are MANY more photos I'm not posting.... Oh, the restraint!!) (PM me if you have questions about teh puppy, I loves to talk about him, but is off topic, kthx. ^_^)


My scrap bag just got a helluva lot more colorful! XD


Here's where the scarf will live when I'm not wearing it, it's too pretty for the closet! We recently painted this mirror black, it used to be white. 

WOOT RAINBOWS! I love me some priiiiiiiimary colors.  <3333

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.

I really like this!  Looking at the pics, I never would have guessed you used the same technique as those other scarves -- the half circles really make it hang differently.

What a "ruche" of adrenaline! I've made a couple of square scarves, and love your circle idea.

if you made two small scarves and joined them in the center, would you eliminate the upside-down side? Not that it matters--it's adorable as is.

That's because you're inspiring!
Just figured out -- put a full circle in the middle.
