Leftover Fabric Scraps to Beautiful Scarves of Purpose

Help! Gift wrap crisis! I needed a quick yet pretty way to wrap up a pair of slippers for a friend whose birthday was last week, and that’s when it donned on me, “How about checking out that book of creative gift wrap ideas that you were always gonna get around to trying someday?” Well, that someday had finally come.

The Wrapping Scarf Revolution by Patricia Lee

The name of the book is The Wrapping Scarf Revolution by Patricia Lee, and it’s definitely worth a looksy if you’re a creative re-use junkie like I am. All it took for me to whip up a few of these bloomtastic wraps was a few squares of leftover fabric, a straight stitch on the old sewing machine, and truthfully, just minutes of my time.The best part? The recipient of the gift can reuse the multi-functional scarf again and again as its adept at transforming itself to fit the occasion or the need! It can wrap presents, turn into a tote bag, dress up a tissue box…. The possibilities are endless!

There’s a “how to” available at the website of the creator so you can link up to it for the specifics here, and if you’re not the crafty type, there are even wrapping scarves available for purchase at the website, BOBO Wrapping Scarf. Here are a few pics of the 2 scarves I whipped up at a moment’s notice. I’d love to see some of the beauties you were able to make. Send me a link in the comments and I’ll be sure to check ’em out. Now let’s get to wrappin’, ladies! Show me your scarves!

  1. They look great! I love the idea both of you reusing fabric you had on hand, and that the recipient will be able to reuse your wrapping in some way as well.
