I found this lightweight almost cheesecloth like fabric at Walmart on clearance for $1.50 a yard. I wasn't looking for fabric. I was just walking by and it caught my eye because of the Valentine's colors and feel it had. When I saw the price I decided to get some.
I used a yard on this scarf and I've got some more for another project.
First thing I did was cut six, 6 inch strips. I sewed them into two long pieces, each 6 inches wide, by sewing three of the strips together. Then I serged up the sides, wrong sides out, gathering as I went.
If you don't have a serger Some machines have a gathering option. Or you can do it by hand.
Once both sides were sewn and gathered I turned it right side out and did a topstitch down both sides. I stole my little sister's special foot to do this It made it very easy.
