beaded bandana scarves

What are you most proud of? I had scarves done in many colors. Ended up being used in the 'Joseph's Technicolor Coat of Many Colors' for which I was the costume director and designer. Was neat that I already had them made up. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun - it is an easy and very cool project

Where are the instructions for this project?
busybeeworker answered:
Using a bandana scarf fold in half to form a triangle and 2 layers. Cut in about 2 - 3 " at the points where the fold line is and down about 1" from the fold (this will be your tie). From that 2 - 3" cut down from top to bottom Starting at one side of the bottom begin to cut 1" strips from bottom to top up the scarf on both layers (looking at the picture will show you what I mean) Take the combination of pony beads and other special beads you might want in the color combinations you want (I use hearts on some of my scarves). Add from 3 - 5 beads onto each slit you cut and tie the end as shown in the picture above. I added 2 -3 conchos on each of mine, attaching them with strips of scraps left when I cut out the top for the tie. I sewed the strips on in the middle / placed the concho on the tie / tied one knot and added a few beads as on the other section. There you have it a beautiful beaded scarf. ***there are some beautiful bandana scarf prints at Hobby Lobby.
