Supplies:

  • Large scarf (My scarf is 27 x 74 inches)
  • Rotary cutter or scissors
  • Ruler
  • Marker in contrasting ink color to your scarf
  • Cutting mat

Step 1

Fold the scarf in half horizontally so both fringe edges are touching. Measure 6 inches in from the fold and 5 inches down from the top. Mark location with a contrasting ink pen or marker.

Step 2

Draw a 9-inch vertical line down from the mark made in step 1. Cut along the vertical line with a rotary cutter. Make sure to press firmly enough to cut through both layers of fabric.
