Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.

STEP 1
Cut the cream white crepe into a square of 75x75cm size. Fold the top border over 3mm two times and pin as shown in the illustration.
STEP 2
Cut 1m of the cotton yarn and start sewing the border, starting at either end. Leave about 2cm of yarn hanging out and make 4 stitches in the same spot to secure the yarn. Cut the short thread with scissors.
STEP 3
Stitch through approximately 5mm of the unfolded crepe and then sew through the folded border. Remove the pins as you go. Continue in the same way until you stitch to the end of this side. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to stitch the other three borders.
STEP 4
STEP 5
Cut out three patterns as shown in step 4 and adhere double-sided tape to all three. (Save this stencil for later use.)
STEP 6
Adhere flower 1 and 3 onto the light green crepe satin and cut both flowers out of the material. Remove the paper pattern.
STEP 7
Repeat step 6 with the flower cut out # 2 and the lilac crepe satin.
STEP 8
Place the stencil from step 4 onto the bottom left corner of the scarf, exactly. Position the three flower cut-outs from steps 6 and 7 onto the scarf with the help of the stencil and pin.
STEP 9
Remove the stencil.
STEP 10
Repeat steps 5-6 with the new flower template # 4. Cut this flower out of the blue crepe.
STEP 11
Repeat steps 8-9 to position the blue flower # 4 onto the scarf with the help of the stencil created in the last step as shown on the illustration.
STEP 12
Repeat steps 5-6 again, using the new flower template for flowers #5 and 6, this time on light green crepe.
STEP 13
Repeat steps 8-9 in placing flowers # 5 and # 6 on to the scarf with the help of the stencil you made from step 12.
STEP 14
Using a basting stitch, tack the flowers onto the scarf and cut off the leftover thread after making a knot from it below the scarf. (This thread will be removed in the last step.)
STEP 15
Mark the embroidery points with the help of pins and the pattern as shown in the illustration.
STEP 16
Thread a needle with 50cm of a nylon thread. Stitch from the back to the front as shown in the illustration. Leave approximately 15cm of the thread hanging in the back. Stitch over to the back side again with a 0.5mm gap from the stitch origin.
STEP 17
Make 4 "back stitches" and then stitch again to the front side, removing the first pin.
STEP 18
Slide the following Swarovski crystal Beads onto the thread: article 5000 3mm - 6 times, 4mm - once, 6mm - once, 4mm - once, 3mm - 6 times (as shown). After the last Swarovski crystal Bead is inserted, stitch back through to the back of the scarf where the second pin marker lies, as pictured in the illustration. Repeat step 17 making 4 "backs stitches".
STEP 19
Stitch needle to the front side at the point of origin removing the second pin. Go back through the Swarovski crystal Beads to the beginning spot and stitch to back side as shown.
STEP 20
Repeat step 17 making two "back stitches" and then make a knot with 15cm thread, leftover from the beginning.
STEP 21
Stitch needle to the front side with one of the threads and as seen in the second picture in this step and go back through some of the Swarovski crystal Beads. Repeat this for the other thread end too, as seen in the last picture of step 21. Trim the remaining threads.
STEP 22
Repeat steps 16 - 21 to make 9 more of the Swarovski crystal Bead strands. Remove the basting stitches holding the flowers by snipping the basting thread and gently pull it out through the scarf.
