However $50 for one pair of shoes really isn't in my budget. So when I saw plain white Keds knock offs at Walmart for only $5 , I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Materials Needed: Plain White or Off White Tennis Shoes (Walmart has them for $5 and Target has them for $9)RIT or other brand Fabric Dye1.5 " wide ElasticStrong Needle and Thread (in coordinating color) Although I love the muted colors that Keds sells.

Begin by cutting your lace and backing fabric into 18" x 45" rectangles. Sew along each 45" side Turn inside out and you'll have something like this: Bring the two ends together and pin the lace fabric right sides together. Sew with a 1/2 inseam. Turn the scarf inside out so that the seams are exposed and pin your backing fabric right sides together. Sew as shown below (with a 1/2" inseam), leaving about a 4 inch gap opening. Turn scarf right side out through your gap and secret stitch the opening. And done! Maybe not as cute as the skirt I had envisioned, but pretty darn close! *Update* More scarves made with this tutorial!
