You can hand sew or use a sewing machine to complete most of the projects, but it goes much faster with a sewing machine.

There are even more scarf types you can make using fabric, so I'm on the lookout for these, too: scarves or shawls with ruffled edges, fringed scarves, and in particular, lacy scarves - those delicate lace patterns create a feminine and intricate look, perfect for adding a touch of romance to an outfit! I've yet to find the perfect lace for a scarf in my local fabric store. I'm thinking to make a triangular shawl with it?
