I actually had this in my head last year, but never pursued it because I was pretty scarfed out! You can see last year’s scarf mania Here, Here, Here and Here. Yah, enough already!
So when I was perusing Target the other day and spotted these super cute knee high socks in the women’s section, I had a flashback. Make a cutesy scarf for the little punk!
It ended up coming out smaller than a scarf, so I’m going with the scarflette trend. It’s super cute and she loves wearing it. The trim is super fun…use whatever you like and get creative!
On this one, I used some home dec pillow trim!
And this one, some faux suede fringe…reminds me of my moccasins from high school
Want to make one for your little punk?
1 pair of women’s knee high socks….the funkier, the better!
1” piece of sew-on velcro (both hook and loop pieces)
8” of trim (approx)
Cut the socks off just above the heel making sure to keep your cut straight
Turn one sock inside out and slip it over the other sock. So, right sides together.
Match up the raw edges and pin in place. Sew a 1/4” seam, around the entire opening
Pull the other sock out, so the scarf is completely right side out now
Cut your trim so it is the same length as the opening of one of the socks. Place it right in between the sock opening.
I didn’t pin this down. It was easier to just hold in place and sew.
Arrange your scarf as it would be around your punk’s neck. Using pins for placement, figure out where your velcro would be best placed.
Make sure to mark where the second velcro piece will be on the under part of the scarf
Pin the velcro in place
Sew in place
Center the button right on top of the sewn top velcro.
Sew the button to the scarf. The button is for decorative use only!
Wrap around your love muffin…
…and have some FUN!
