Scarf Beach Cover-Up

Have you noticed how hard it is to find a great beach cover-up, one that's not fussy or frilly? We sure have. That's why we came up with our own. Breezy, and a tad bohemian, it's as easy to make from two cotton scarves as it is to throw on before you head to the beach.

  • 2 cotton scarves (about 2 by 6 feet is a good size)

  • Sewing machine and basic sewing supplies


  1. Stack 2 cotton scarves (about 2 by 6 feet is a good size), right sides facing. Use a basic running stitch to join the scarves lengthwise, leaving an opening of about 18 inches in the center for a neck hole.

  2. The finished cover-up will have a V-neck and a seam in the front and the back.
