Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette

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  Smile

Want to make one for your little punk?

1 pair of women’s knee high socks….the funkier, the better!
1 button
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!

    I LOVE this idea. And I always snag the funky women’s kneehighs when they go on clearance…so I have a good stockpile of them.

    And the youngest Munchkins loves wearing scarves but always ends up tripping on them. Scarflette here we come!

    Brilliant!! I have loads of knee socks from roller derby and they would make great scarves for my little punks! Great tutorial again, thank you :)

    Love it! (& have seen it already on pinterest boards =) So adorable! I made a scarf from a tute of yours last year. I am looking forward to using up some socks that I may have overbought when I was making my daughter leg-warmers.
