A LOVEly ruffly Scarf

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.
That's it.
I'll be wearing this when I play Room Mom at my daughters Valentines class party. Not bad for a $1.50.

I think this is a great idea, My Wally World doesn't have any good fabric these days. You will be the most sassy mom at school.
