Anthropologie Scarf

My friend Sheri had a really cute scarf on yesterday and so I took a picture of it. Turns out it was from Anthropologie, a store I love. So when I got home I went through my scarves and found one that I could alter. Here is a short tutorial.

Cut some long thin pieces of wool, or lace or ribbon and weave them in and out of the scarf holes about 6 inches from the end. Do this about 4 times with different colored wool. I used scissors to help the wool go in and out.
Tie knots on the ends of each wool piece.


Sew with a machine, layers of lace. Have them overlap each other all the way to the end of the scarf.

Repeat on the other end of the scarf.

Have your daughter model it for you. Let me know if you try this. I want to see yours.
