2 Minutes

Scarf bags are a great way to give your average bag a little something extra.

I’ll show you how to level up your bag using a scarf. Just grab a scarf and a bag with a fold-over flap and hardware attaching the bag handles.

Let's get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Bag with flap and handles
  • Scarf
Preparing the scarf

1. Prepare the scarf

Fold your scarf into a triangle and then fold it into thirds lengthwise. 

Preparing the scarf

Keep folding until your scarf is about 2-3 inches wide.

Folding the scarf

2. Fold it in

Open your bag and lay the scarf across the inside of the flap. Then close the flap.

3. Wind it through

Run the ends of the scarf through the hardware that attaches the handles to the bag.

Tying scarf

4. Tie and adjust

Pull the ends through to meet in the middle and then tie the ends in a knot. Then adjust until everything is laying how you want it.
