Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette

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!

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
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  Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette

Want to make one for your little punk?

MATERIALS
Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
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)

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Cut the socks off just above the heel making sure to keep your cut straight

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Turn one sock inside out and slip it over the other sock.  So, right sides together.

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Match up the raw edges and pin in place.  Sew a 1/4” seam, around the entire opening

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Pull the other sock out, so the scarf is completely right side out now

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
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.

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
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.

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Make sure to mark where the second velcro piece will be on the under part of the scarf

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Pin the velcro in place

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Sew in place

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Center the button right on top of the sewn top velcro. 

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
Sew the button to the scarf.  The button is for decorative use only!

Tutorial: Toddler Scarflette
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.
