Antique Flower Triangle Scarf

I needed a break from the computer for a bit today, my  darn allergies are making my eyes itch and burn like nobody's business. I love having the windows open so much, so I'm suffering through the itching and sneezing just to enjoy the beautiful breeze. It's worth it. But, as I was saying I needed a break, so I whipped up this beauty in about 30 min. 

The fabric is from Cloud9's Miscellany collection by Julia Rothman, in the Antique Flower print. It's gorgeously soft organic cotton which feels so very lovely around the neck. The pom pom trim I found thrifting awhile ago. I think I paid something like 50 cents for about two yards. I've been wanting to make something like this for ages and that beautiful rust color is just so perfect for early fall. This is super easy, and could be customized in so many ways. I've included a short tutorial so you can make one too!

You'll need about 1/2 yard of fabric and 2 yards of pom pom trim.
Cut a square of fabric that measures 32 inches x 32 inches.
Cut the square in half along the diagonal creating two large triangles.

Lay the fabric right sides together. Pin with the trim even with the raw edges in between the two layers, the pom poms pointing in towards the center.  This is a little tricky with the pom poms but as long as you use lots of pins it'll work out. I put trim on only two edges but you could trim the entire scarf or even just one edge would be interesting. 

Sew around the triangle leaving a spot along one side for turning. Clip the corners and turn right side out. Iron and edge stitch to close the opening and finish the scarf. Wear with gusto! 


  1. Love it so much! I've never made a scarf before, but this looks right up my alley!

  2. I'm a sucker for anything with ball fringe! Gotta make one of these ...

  3. I love it! I seems so simple and the fabric + pompom combination colours is just perfect!

    Regards from France!


  4. I think there is a mistake in how much fabric is needed. You can't cut a 32x32 square out of a half a yard of fabric... A half a yard is 18 inches by a little over 40 in depending on the width of the bolt. You'll actually need a yard :)
