love this fabric. It's a soft, stretchy, knit pre-'ruffled' in @1" tiers and was purchased at Hobby Lobby. Because it's a knit, it comes 60" wide. Perfect for a scarf! This fabric is priced at $10.99 per yard. 12" would also work fine, which is 1/3 yard..... so if you purchased a 1/3 yard at $10.99 per yard your investment in this scarf is a mere $3.66.
between the ruffles, not through any of them. Leave the selvage, it's a perfect finish and the ruffles cover the edges anyway. At this point you should have a 13" wide by 60" long piece of fabric.
