Groovy lettuce edge circle scarf made from t-shirt scraps.
I made a blanket out of old tees.... and what was left was an awesome blanket and a boxful of scraps. I took all those scraps and made a scarf!

Note: I estimated the time it took because I did this off and on during the day. At the most I'd say it took 2-3 hours.

If you don't want to take the time out to make the scarf, I'm also working on selling these on my Etsy in different colors, so email me if you are interested!

  • How to make a scarf. Circle Scarf - Step 1
    Step 1

    Take something round and trace it onto the fabric. I used an old c.d. that I painted for another craft. If your scrap is large enough, I recommend folding it in half and cutting two (or more) circles at once. Repeat until you have about 20 pairs (40 circles). If you like your scarves longer or shorter, add accordingly.

    Step 2

    Sew two circles together with a straight stitch; leaving enough space at the end to turn it inside out. If there is a pattern on the fabric that you want on your scarf, make sure that the right sides are facing before you sew.

    Press, and sew a zig-zag stitch around the perimeter. The circle will start to curl up (lettuce edge).

    Once you have all the circles done, overlap one circle over another and sew a zig-zag stitch to connect them together. Repeat until you have all the circles together.

    Bundle yourself up and go for a walk! Now, don't you look groovy'?!

Just in case anyone else had the same questions I posted my reply on here... I'm not sure how to do it the right way.

You have to leave space to turn it inside out because it give it a cleaner edge when you do and topstitch it. I've actually just done a test circle to see what it would look like if you didn't turn it, and it does the same thing. It's just not as wavy.

For the lettuce edge to work, I think you can only do it with stretchy materials. If you just want a plain circle scarf, any material will work. Hope this helps! =]

Why do you leave space to turn it inside out?
