This easy-to-sew scarf bedecked with eye-catching flowers is a guaranteed attention-grabber. Show your Valentine's Day spirit and turn some heads with this fun, flirty, floral scarf.
To make your own rosette scarf, you will need a half yard of fabric, thread, scissors, a needle or a sewing machine, and pins. You will need to use fabric that won't unravel, such as felt or fleece.
Cut a strip from the fabric that is 6-8 inches wide and the full length of the fabric, selvedge to selvedge. Cut off the selvedges. This will be your scarf base.
Cut the same number of large, medium and small circles of fabric. Perfect circles and exact measurements are not necessary. The scarf pictured has 12 sets of circles that are roughly 4 inches, 3 inches and 2 inches wide.
Trim the edges of the circles so that they are flower shaped.
Stack the flowers -- small on top of medium on top of large.
Fold a stack of circles in half and stitch a 3/8 inch long seam, by hand or with a sewing machine, perpendicular to the fold in the center of the circle.
Fold the stitched stack of of circles in half the other direction and stitch a similar 3/8 inch seam.
Repeat the stitching process with all of your flowers to give them dimension.
Arrange the flowers on the scarf base and pin them in place.
Stitch each flower to the scarf base by putting a few stitches through the very center of the flower, either by hand or by machine.
To keep the flowers from flopping around too much, tack the large circle to the scarf base with a few stitches in a few locations that will be hidden underneath the medium circle.
