The first thing to do is cut off the buckle or d-ring at the end of your belt and sew off the end. Lay your belt down. Lay the scarf down parallel to the belt. Pin about 6 inches in the middle of both. Then bring the ends in to create your arm holes. Pin all the way down each end and sew.

The first thing to do is cut your large scarf in half. We like the crochet look of this one in contrast to the crinkled beige scarf we’ve paired with it. Cut, pin, and sew! For all of these, it’s best to measure around yourself as there will be small differences for each person and each scarf.

7. Glam Racerback

8. Chic Romantic

For the front of the vest, we used a jersey knit scarf that could easily be replicated using a couple t-shirts. The back is made using three silk scarves, cut to be the same size. Sew the 3 silk ones together so they turn into a larger swatch of fabric. Follow the same steps  as the belted number.

9. Skulls N’ Studs

Lay your scarf out across a table. Fold each end in about 18 inches. Attach the folded ends with a little stitch. You’ll have little flaps in the front where you can add a snap button. Add a couple studs for flair wherever suits you, and you’re done

10. Technicolor Boho

Sew about 6 inches at the middle for the part that will go behind the neck, then the rest, allowing for arm holes. This one is definitely our favorite!
