Recycled Fabric Scarf
Learn how to make a scarf the eco-friendly way! The recycled fabric scarf from Samantha Palacio is quick and easy, and it looks cute too.
- T-shirts or fabric
- A sewing machine or needle and thread
- The fabric squares were cut to approximately 5x7 inches.
- I lined them up in alternating colors and created an overlap of about 1/2"
- I sewed them together using a loose zigzag stitch.
- You end up with a long scarf of fabric squares.
- You can go several ways from here. You can cut a long piece of fleece and attach it to the back of your square using a zigzag stitch along the edges. You can sew two scarves together hiding the overlap between the two. You can use organic cotton or felt as well to line the back.
- You can leave the edges raw like I did or serge the edges for a more finished look. I like raw edges and rough, even seams. I chose not to back my scarf or sew the edges.
