5 Minute No Sew Scarf

Well, I’ve been wanting, no, needing a cute jersey scarf for awhile and I finally made one!!

This is the BEST  and EASIEST project EVER!

And it only takes around 5 minutes!!!
I saw this here on Altered Cloth blog a LONG time ago…..and hve just been stalking the fabric store for jersey to go on a good sale.

AND IT FINALLY DID!!

So, I got this super-cute and cuddly sage green color and brought it to it’s new home :)

You will need between 2-2.5 yards of your yummy fabric (mine ended up being 85 inches since it was pre-cut that way and they gave me more of a discount to take it!)

So, my scarf measures 85″ x 16″ and I should be able to get 2 1/2 more scarves out of my lovely fabric (the half width one will be for Aislyn, my middle, who told me how much she loves mine :)

Now, I got out my rotary cutter and see-through quilting ruler (so I can cut it nice and straight :)
and got to work.

But first, I measured and put little dots along the way to help me not mess it up (I really can’t cut straight!).
That’s ALL you do!!!

You don’t need to sew the edges (or use fray check) because jersey won’t fray. Over time and washing the edges will curl up a little and give it more character :)

Seriously……this took 5 minutes, and that’s only because I got interrupted twice.

Now, how does it look?

I LOVE it!!

I think I will wear it everyday from now on :)

Have fun!

  1. Too cute. I am going to have to try this myself. Do you have to do anything to the ends to keep them from fraying? or is this not an issue with jersey fabric?

    Mind my ignorance lol. :P

  3. That is fantastic! I’ve been wanting a jersey scarf too. I will definitely have to try this. If you won’t be using the rest of your fabric feel free to send it my way :-)

    Love the color too! How much does jersey usually cost? I’m new to crafting, and I want to make sure I find a good deal.

  4. Really cute, thanks for posting it!

  5. I have also seen these made from old t-shirts…just flat-seamed together! Love the color of yours!

  6. How great! I bet it is so soft, and not itchy at all like many scarves! I’ll have to make one.

  8. Love it! I just saw a friend of mine who’s way more stylish than me wearing one she bought from American Apparel last night… I think I need to make one now!
