In this combo, I was trying to use a scarf that I don’t use that often. I used my cream pashmina styled scarf as the base, however, I left the tail down and tied this triangular scarf (after folding as it is a square) tucking those ends in. Then I pulled the cream over, laying it flat. I topped it off with my button headband. Not the best in my opinion but simple and fast. =]
This one is neat. I wanted to show a bit of hair as I tend to cover everything I can. I was playing around when I discovered this cute knot. Over a base, I laid my multi green scarf down in the middle of the scarf. I pulled the tails up and ended up tying them in a double knot slightly to the side. With the short leftover ends, I tucked them under the knot. One tail had the red, the other the orange so it gave that layered look to the knot. No need to embellish, but a bit of lace would still look nice!
This one certainly worked well. If you can’t tell, dark plum is a favorite of mine. I used a base then laid the tan scarf first, wrapping one tail around the bun & leaving one down. Then I laid down the dark purple silky fabric closest to one end as the fabric is not long enough to wrap the two tails around. I wrapped the tan tail just before the bun and the purple just behind that. I took my long, thin plaid scarf and wrapped it within an inch of my hairline. I then added a thin lace strip – which as you can see from the picture isn’t tucked in, lol – and a sparkly pin.
Yes, that’s right. I had these two sinars that are both mostly one color – pink or blue – and I wanted to wear those colors together. The navy blue sinar has accents of bright orange which obviously would not be preferred with this outfit. So, after my base, I laid my blue sinar down along my hairline all the while keeping the other layers of the front folded back toward the bun. I crossed the tails behind, making sure to tuck in the back and crossed over one tail that still had orange, laying it flat. I had folded the pink sinar up like a long rectangle and laid it over the blue, hiding the blue layers. I wrapped one pink tail over followed by the blue which subsequently covered that first pink tail. I finished the look with the last pink tail. While you can see a bit more bulk than just a simple sinar, it still looks like it is seamless. Maybe this can help you realize that putting money into a sinar or a few can still be cost effective. You can wear them in multiple ways just like any old scarf. Truthfully, I prefer sinars because they are SO easy to wrap! They always look like I am an expert wrapper but in reality, I just rolled out of bed.
I had been wanting to use the floral scarf for some time but just hadn’t found a way to use it yet. Here, I used my cream pashmina-style as the base and then brown cotton to cover all but about an inch. The tails I wrapped around the bun. Now the floral scarf is more like a small bandana style and so I folded it in half then folded under the large corner to make it a wide band I topped the look off with a floral pin I made.
Decided to simply use my first sinar tichel as a wrap today with only a cute white crocheted flower as embellishment. I played around with it to have the white fabric be solely up front followed by both tails displaying only the teal polka-dots then the black. With my construction, I simply folded the teal and the black of the first layer back to reveal more white then wrapped the first tail without folding & the second tail I folded under the white. I enjoyed this one, only I would make my bun underneath bigger! =]
Very flattering color combination. I used a base scarf to make the bun for this one and then wrapped the teal scarf, leaving one tail down. I then used my navy blue fabric strip followed by my plaid fabric strip. I pulled the final teal tail behind the two and topped the look off with my dusty purple ribbon rose. I think even a bit of lace would be great on this too!
What’s your favorite embellishment?
