This stylish fashion accessory can be worn by him or her and can be a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe. If you are still clueless on what to give your friends this Christmas, try making a fringe scarf with a personalized touch to brighten up their Holidays.
Here’s how to make a Fringe Scarves in four easy steps:
- Prepare your materials. What you need is the fabric for your fringe scarf. We recommend using something warm but lightweight with a loose weave. The looser the weave, the better. The ideal measurement for the fabric is 54 inches by 60 inches or 45 inches by 45 inches. A square (roughly) usually make the best fringe scarf.
- Cut the selvages on the edge of the fabric along each side. You can use different tools to do this, but a rotary blade is highly recommended. Use a ruler to make a straight cut. See to it that the entire width of the fabric is thoroughly cut.
- Sew a straight stitch at the edge of the scarf, mindful of the fringe allowance. You can decide how long the fringes will be. Be consistent with your seam allowance, so don’t stitch all the way to the edge of the fabric.
- Finish it off with some custom labels or anything that will personalize the scarf! Preferably, put this on the bottom edge so it does not rest against the person’s neck and irritate their skin. You can also tight together long fringes or tie some small beads or charms on them for added stylistic design.
This is very easy and quick to do Fringe Scarves. Plus, you only need a few materials. In no time, you can create a dozen to distribute to your friends, family, or co-workers! Secret santa, anyone?
