Quilt Square Scarf Tutorial & Giveaway (Closed)

Have some quilt squares laying around not being put to use? Well, you could make some cute scarves with them.

I had a Moda charm pack (can’t find what print this was) that I had sewn up strips of 9 to create a baby blanket. But, I never went further than that.

So, continuing with my “trying to to buy more stuff” thing, I decided to make some scarves with them for Christmas gifts.

It didn’t take long at all and now I have three gifts done and a gift to give to one of you :)

What you need:
-9 five inch quilt squares for each scarf
-1/4 yard of flannel fabric for the backing (all of mine came from JoAnn’s)
-10 inches of trim for the ends (I used pom pom trimming on all of mine)

1. Sew the squares together, right sides facing, to create a long row.

2. Place the row on the flannel and cut out the exact size of the quilt square row.

3. Place the flannel piece right side facing down and then put the quilt square row on top, right side facing up. Pin together.

4. Sew together down the sides, but leave a good inch or so free at the ends.

5. Pin on the trimming inbetween the 2 pieces of fabric on the ends. Sew the 3 layers together. Then sew up the sides if there is any place left open.

6. Go down the sides and clip towards the seam, making sure not to clip through the seam.

7. Throw in the washer or just wet it really good. Then put it in the dryer to dry.

8. When it comes out, you might have to pick off some threads, but other than that it is done.

They are so cute and they can fit a child or an adult. You just wrap it over in the front. I even joined in on the fun to show you how it would look on an adult.

Giveaway is now CLOSED

    I think I might have to create a few of these this weekend to have on hand for those “oops, I didn’t know you were going to get me a gift” gifts. Thanks for the great tutorial!

    Absolutely adorable! Your daughter looked so precious with the scarf on! I could give this to one of my nieces (since I only have a son, no daughters…yet).

    That’s a really lovely scarf! If I win, I might try to keep it, but I know that my scarf-obsessed 3 year old daughter will instantly claim it as hers. :)

    So cute! I’m definitely putting this on my gift idea list. I wish I was as good at mixing prints as you always are. I usually get so overwhelmed with all the pretty patterns and don’t know what to put together when I’m in the fabric store.

    Thanks for your lovely ideas! My daughter is 2 and your creations inspires me a lot as a mum!! When I open your blog, Gioia (her name) says “mimme!” that in Italian and baby language means “little girls!”. Greetings from Florence, Italy!! GBY!! Katia

    Hi There,
    I live in Istanbul, Turkey and just found your blog out of nowhere :) I guess I was lucky sine I loved it and got directly addicted to it. I love the ideas, thanks so much. I don’t think that you would be willing to send the scarf to Turkey but just wanted to say hi :)
    Love your work and inspirations

    I love this because you can use cute fabrics and make something useful but it doesn’t have any fussy finishing details. That pretty much fits my definition of fun sewing. I just found your blog and I’m really enjoying all of the tutorials. Thanks for sharing!


  20. says

    Great idea! My little girl Nina (we call her mini) would love the pinks in the patterns and the pom poms would be her favorite detail. I hope we win but if not congrats to whoever gets it! Your bog is awesome.. you are super inspiring!


    Happy happy holidays all!

    This is just adorable! I can’t wait to make it! I was wondering where you found the extra large ball fringe pictured. I love the bigger pom pom trim.

    “I was wondering where you found the extra large ball fringe pictured. I love the bigger pom pom trim.”

    I found that trim in the area where the decorator fabric is. It was not with the regular trim.
