Reverse Applique Scarf



This sewn scarf pattern is perfect for bundling up during the cold winter months. Since the main fabric is a recycled t-shirt, the Reverse Applique Scarf is cheap and easy to make.


Reverse Applique Scarf



  • Old, large-sized t-shirts in assorted colors
  • Scissors
  • Embroidery thread and needles
  • Stencils
  • Chalk


  1. Cut t-shirt through the front and back leaving the shoulder seam intact

  2. Cut two t-shirts (two different colors) the same way, then layered them together, shoulder seams facing in.
  3. Using embroidery thread, sew the two layers together using a basting stitch around the outside edge.

  4. Using chalk, draw a simple pattern onto the top layer of our material. You can use a stencil or freehand this.
  5. Stitch around the pattern using large stitches in a contrasting embroidery thread then cut out the center of the top layer, revealing the layer of fabric underneath.

This is a really great idea. I purchased turtle necks on clearance ($1) in 4x size in several bright colors and whipped out a few long ones. I made a stencil for leaves and a stem and made a rose yo-yo and tacked it on. They are so quick and easy you just cant go wrong and my friends loved them. Thank you Jennifer!
