Step 2: Mark Center Point

Lay the scarf out flat with the openings on the sides and fold it in half vertically. Then, take a pencil and mark the center point at the top.

Step 3: Measure & Cut

Unfold the scarf and measure out about 10 inches or so at the top in the center. Then, carefully cut a slit along that 10 inches. Next, cut a straight line down vertically about 6 or 7 inches from the center point of that slit. Fold the two flaps back and you will now have a neck hole/collar!

Step 4: Cut Bottom Opening & Fringe

Now that the neck/collar section is done, take your scissors and cut along the bottom of the fabric to create the opening where your legs will go. Then, make sure both layers of fabric are evenly aligned and cut thin, vertical lines about 6 or 7 inches across the entire bottom, stretching each strip as you go. This will create a cute fringe look!

Step 5: All Done!
