Here's a step-by-step on how to make an inexpensive scarf skirt (like those head scarves your mammie or grammie used to wear when she was in the convertible...think Thelma and Louise) and a pair of old jeans (or any kind of pants!).

Step 1: What you need

Scarves - I prefer the longer, rectangular ones, but you can just as well do the large square ones. I used 4 and cut them in the middle. I picked these up for $1 each at the Goodwill.
Pair of old pants or shorts
Sewing machine (you can do it by hand but it would take a while)
Straight edge, chalk and cutter (optional)
Very cool! I have some silk scraps I think I might try this with!! :) <br>it was a grab-bag, 'swap' type thing and there isn't enough of any one piece to do much with...until now!
Cool! I like the idea! Wonder what would happen with ties..?
Thank you! My next project is a tie skirt. I have seen several tutorials on here with them. Some people use them as is while some seam rip them, unfold them and iron them. To me, that would defeat the purpose. I just know that ties are 1.00 a piece and I would have needed more than the 4 handkerchiefs (at .50 each). Money-wise it was cheaper with the handkerchiefs. ;)
