Sixteen Ways to Style A Vintage Scarf # 7: Scarf-ed Collar

Vintage Scarf Tutorial #7:

“Scarf a Collar” Episode one!

This was a fun and easy project. It only took me about 45 minutes to complete!

Please remember that you can check out all of the 16 ways Scarf tutorials as they happen...I've collected them on one simple Pinterest pinboard for you to follow!

I first took my t-shirt and draped the scarf around the neck, tying it in a single knot in the back.

I then created gathers with a simple tied white thread about every two-three inches, leaving me with little "puffs".

I did some pinning for placement...

...and began sewing the little puffs in place. As you can see, I left the back looked really cute that way! I sewed this into place as well (all with the same white thread).

This was the result...a fun, whimsical collar on an old tshirt. The stitching is quite loose; I could easily reclaim the scarf or the tshirt!

Cute! I'm looking forward to two more "scarf-ed" collar projects with different scarves and styles!

Of course, there is a prize in today's blog! I'm leaving a fun "mystery" scarf at the Glade St. Hope's Outlet location to be found by any lucky reader who is out that way in Muskegon, Michigan today, after 4 p.m.!
