- 3-4 old/thrifted plaid flannel shirts
- Basic sewing supplies (scissors, thread)
- Sewing machine
- Silver studs
This scarf is a patchwork of different types of plaids, so the first step is to cut up the flannel shirts. I did this and kept a common width of 18 in. for all patchwork pieces, but each one had a different length, so as to make the most of the shirts. Then I laid the pieces out in a random pattern. You can see the common width, but different lengths in the photograph below.
After making a pleasing arrangement, I sewed the pieces together by simply over lapping the edges of the fabric and using a running stitch.
I didn't worry about raw edges, as raw fraying edges were totally acceptable during the grunge era! After piecing together the entire scarf I cut the the ends for fringe. I cut 1 in. sections about 12 in. long and tied a know in each one.
For the final step, I added three rows of studs at the ends.
After the studs are in, your scarf is finished! Enjoy!
