Fine and Feathered - "Simple Printed Scarf"


Scarves and headbands are one of those things I can never bring myself to buy unless it’s a super unique print or color. I love simple ones though. I recently bought a few yards of a super soft jersey knit fabric on sale and have been looking for all sorts of uses for it.

This is a super simple head (or neck) scarf and only really takes a few minutes (besides letting the paint dry) and is pretty cheap too – love!

Fine and Feathered StampI used some leftover un-mounted linoleum (found at most art supply stores – you also could use thick foam) and used my x-acto knife to cut out my “stamp”. I went with a swiss cross shape but you could really do anything – it’s best to stick with something simple though.

Fine and Feathered DIYI layed my cut fabric (approximately 12 x 50 inches) over some cardboard for protection. I used Martha Stewart’s All Purpose Craft Paint in white, just dipping my stamp in and hand stamping it onto the fabric. I let it dry overnight, and then ran it through the dryer on high heat to set.

Fine and Feathered Printed Head ScarfI am excited to get some other colors of fabrics and paints to make some more. I also made mine a little extra long so I can easily use it as a neck scarf too – love things that can do double duty:)
