Gift Idea: A Simple DIY Scarf

IMG_7607I created this super simple DIY scarf, inspired by a scarf in Elsie's closet from a past season. This scarf is great for adding a pop of color to a neutral outfit. I think these would make great gifts for all my girlfriends. The best part is, this project only took about 30 minutes to make! 
IMG_76151. Supplies: 2 yards gauze fabric, lace trim, sewing pins, scissors, sewing machine. 2. Begin by cutting the fabric 3 x 1 ft. 3. Pin the lace trim to the edge of the fabric and top stitch it with the sewing machine. 4. Finish by adding more trim to throughout the scarf to give it a more layered, accessorized look!

  • Beautiful! Now I know what to give to my sister for Christmas. Thanks for sharing a helpful post.

  • So cute! Love the lace detailing! Lace makes everything look cute!


  • You read my mind!
    I found a scrap of soft brown polka dot fabric that will make a pretty scarf, but it will only be about six inches wide when I make it long enough. Then I sorted through a stash of lace and found some wonderful vintage pieces and realized how beautiful they’ll look stitched the length of the brown polka dots.
    Can’t wait to sit down to stitch it up.

  • I just wanted to let you know that I loved this post so much that I decided to feature it on my blog! I’m typing up the post right now! Thanks for such great inspirations!!!

  • I am going to try this as a simple sewing machine project. I’m trying to teach myself how to sew, and really simple little projects like this are few and far between. Thanks!

  • I don’t have a sewing machine, but I can do this with fabric glue! Thank you for the idea 🙂

  • Oh my gosh, this is the perfect present for my little sister! I think she would love it!

  • Pretty! And such a great idea! I think this will look great as a loop scarf too!


  • So beautiful! 🙂

  • I love this, the extra lace looks fantastic. May be my possible first sewing project on my new machine!

  • Ou, I love the lace trim! You could buy any fabric at the store and just add a trim and it would look fabulous 🙂 I should have thought of that! I love when you feature Kinsey on the blog!
