Dana's Summer Scarf Tutorial

Here's a tutorial from another one of my favorite sewing blogs, Made. Dana has a great tutorial for summer scarf that is a simple addition to any outfit and also makes a great gift. I played around with different fabric and techniques and did 2 slight variations on her tutorial, mostly because I was feeling lazy and didn't want to turn and sew the sides of the scarf. For the first, I used a green light-weight cotton gauze and sewed a tube, turned it right side out, ironed the seam to the bottom center, and then shirred it up the middle. Very quick, no sides to hem. This only works on a very light fabric because the shirring won't gather up well on heavier fabrics.

For the second, and my favorite, I used a lightweight fuschia swiss dot and finished the edges with the picot edge stitch on my serger with contasting white thread. Then I shirred it up the middle and voila, another great summer scarf. Super easy and very cute. Thanks for the great tutorial!
