Spring is just around the corner and I am so ready! Even though in Southern California we don’t technically have winters. But Spring means the flower fields bloom and we can go pick strawberries and we get just a little more sunshine around here.

I have a new fun project for you today that is perfect for hurrying Spring along – it’s this Simple DIY Spring Patchwork Scarf and it’s my new favorite accessory!

I love the light fabric in this scarf – and the patchwork fabrics make it easy to mix and match your favorite colors, or even use up some fabrics in your stash! And since it’s a few different prints, it’s a great way to spice up some outfits with color and style.

The scarf is finished off with some little mini tassels too! I think they add a touch of fun to the scarf and they have a little of an Anthropologie vibe. Which is not shocking if you’ve been to visit my blog. I have a bit of a thing for that store.

So let’s get started with the tutorial. This is a great starter project if you are just learning to sew.

Materials:

  • light weight fabrics like voile, lawn or chiffon- 1/2 yard of 3 different 60″ wide fabrics. (if you fabric is 45″ wide you will need 3/4 of a yard)
  • Embroidery floss in coordinating colors
  • thread, scissors, sewing machine

Begin by cutting out your fabrics. You will need 2 pieces from each of your three fabrics – 16″ x 26″ each.

Sew together three of the sections, along the 16″ side. You’ll have three panels in a row. You can use either a serger or a regular sewing machine to sew your seams. If you use a regular machine, make sure you finish the seams with a zig zag stitch so the seams don’t fray and leave you looking like you have a chiffon cat or something.

Sew the remaining panels together in the same way, but alternate the patterns of the fabrics. This way the scarf will look all patchwork-y and cute.

Line up the two panels right sides together and match up the seams. Sew the center seam together.

Hem all four sides of the scarf by turning under the edges twice and sewing. Make sure the hem is small.

Tie a knot in the strings that are at the top of the tassel, about 1/4″ up from the top of the tassel. Using a large needle, sew the ends of the floss to the bottom hemmed edge of the scarf.
