$2.50 Scarf!

I've been dying to make a scarf all winter.  I love scarves.  They make your outfit look "finished" and accessorized.  It can dress up a plain tee and jeans.

One of my favorite scarves is this maroon ruffly scarf.  It is so cute on!  So, I thought I'd make one like it. In purple :)

I decided to use knit fabric because it would be so comfy.  I purchased 1/4 yd at Hancock Fabric.  On sale  - $8.99/yd.  = $2.38

I for it home and cut it in half in lengthwise.  Then I sewed the ends together to create one long piece of fabric (112" long).  I added two ruffle stitches 1/3 of the way along the width and 2/3 of the way along the width.  It still wasn't quite ruffly enough, so I gathered it a bit more before tying off the ends.

Super easy.  And super cute.
