DIY circle scarf


Fall is officially here!  In Vancouver we can tell because our gorgeous sunshine has turned to endless rain.  It has been raining here since Friday – straight – well almost without a break.  Fall can be dreary but there are a few things I can’t help but love and welcome with open arms, or hands, like a grande, extra hot, sugar free Pumpkin Spice Latte (with whip of course), shopping for new boots, leg warmers and scarves, and soaking in a hot bath without sweating (TMI?? sorry).  There is just something so cozy about this time of year which makes it easier to transition from summer.  This weeks DIY is an affordable and versatile way to layer your look for fall.  You have probably seen these around, possibly at your local Lulu Lemon store for a ridiculous amount of mula.  I am excited to share how easy and cheap this circle scarf is, and you don’t even need to be crafty!  I promise!!

All you need is:

  • One metre of fabric (check the bargain section…I buy fabric for $3-$4/m)
  • Scissors
  • Thread that matches your fabric
  • Needle

When the lady cuts your fabric at the store, the fabric is doubled, so all you need to do is bring it home, lay it out like I did below, and sew a hem along the hem line like in the picture (if you have a sewing machine this is a breeze, but if you don’t, like me, it takes about 15 minutes to hand sew it).


Once you have sewn the hem, open the fabric up and you will have a long circle scarf like the one on the left, and then double it up for the final look!


Now honestly, wasn’t that easy!?  Think of the endless colors, styles, fabric..and my favorite – patterns!  You might remember my striped one from this post.  I have gotten so much wear out of it!   Image

I hope you all have a fantastic week…happy crafting.

  1. Love it, but you had me confused by writing hem. You’re actually sewing a seam, not a hem. It took me a while to figure out what you meant. (It’s an age thing!)
