I've seen pictures floating around Pinterest of these gorgeous scarves and knew I'd have to try my hand at making them myself. Goodwill has a plethora of ties to choose from and my daughter picked these two for me to make a scarf for her. I say scarf, but the finished product is more like a piece of art to wear around your neck.
I started by placing my ties so they overlapped a bit, with the large ends arranged so both ties are fully visible.
I formed pleats,
and pinned them in place.
I hand sewed the pleats and ruffles in place so that the stitches weren't visible, and added a snap to close the scarf; a piece of velcro would work just as well.
I've made this one to put in my Etsy shop, and I plan on making more...once you start, its hard to stop!
