I love the idea of making your own scarf because it can be an accessory that no one else will have but you! You can go with any fabric, whether cotton teeshirt material, a sheer fabric, or something thicker. This pleated look is easily accomplished and you don`t need a lot of sewing experience to do a good job. It is mainly just creating the pleats with pins (getting the lines straight looks like the hard part), and then just sewing everything in place. Pretty simple idea for a way to get something uniquely you!
