Calavera Scarf





Introduction: Calavera Scarf

I got idea of making a custom scarf when I grinded something and that smell was really deadly ! :D

It was really easy and quick to make one and it was a loads of fun :)

Step 1: Materials

You will need:

  • black fabric
  • paints
  • brush
  • thread and needle
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • pins

Step 2: Cutting and Sewing

First step is to cut the basic shape. I chose a right angle triangle (I used my old scout scarf as a template :D ), but it's up to you! Choose any dimensions you desire.

Then just flip the edges and sew them. Use pins for better manipulation ;)

Step 3: Painting

Now it comes to harder (but entertaining!) part - painting.

Make a pattern with pencil. Then paint the basic shapes with white color (or any other color you desire). After that just start adding some details like teeth, nose, this flower design all around, dots, tears,...I also added some beard! :) .. It only depends on your creativity, there isn't much to say about :)

Just look at the photos and try to get inspired!

Step 4: Wearing

Well...If you got here it means you're done!

I always loved this sugar skull design so I really enjoyed this project. And I hope you did too! :)

If you have any questions or compliments, feel free to write a comment!

See ya! :)

    Really great, but not everyone can draw like you. Could you send a pattern? Be great for All Hallows Eve - coming soon. Your quite talented - you sew too?

    Thanks a lot! Well maybe I could make some pattern after exams, but it's really not as hard as you think ;)

    And yeah, I do sometimes. I often sew new costumes for larp battles :)

    what kind of pain did u use??

    I used some acrylic paints I found at home, but next I would buy special paints for clothing (because I like it so much that I decided to paint my tshirt :D )

    Love it! Might think twice about grocery shopping in it, tho! 5-0 might be asking questions :)

    I'm glad you like it! :)

    Well it's worth trying :D

    Wont this color create a layer which will hamper air flow. The reason am pulling this out is, i have used the same technique for murals on Tees and same thing happens. More on that when i wash it the color gets torn (cracks).

    Well, I'm not sure, but I left the nostrils part without paint, so it's ok. But most of the air flows between a face and a scarf anyways :) And the cracking of the colors depends on what paints are you using I guess. I haven't tried to wash it yet, so I can't tell.

    Thanks for a comment! :)

    This is so cool! I have a ski mask that is similar, but it just looks like a skull and it's neoprene (I think?), anyways, awesome job!
