Hello everyone! Do you like to wear scarves? Would you like to take a stab at making some cute new scarves yourself? Then this tutorial is one you’ll love. This project is super fast and easy, and you can pull out some of your scrap fabric to make this with. Let’s get started!
Things you’ll need:
1. Fabric (Two long strips of fabric, the measurements to your specifications). I am using the organic cotton fabric from www.spoonflower.com
3. Sewing machine
5. Matching thread
6. Iron and ironing board
Step 1: Take your two strips of fabric, and trim them so that they are even with each other, and are straight. Since my fabric is features a stripe print, I just followed along the lines of the stripes to trim these.
Step Two: Place your two strips of fabric on top of each other, right sides together, and pin in place.
Take the scarf to your machine, and sew all around it. Both ends, and the long side edges. I used a zigzag stitch, and I made sure to sew with a 3/8 seam allowance, but whatever allowance you use is up to your discretion. However, leave yourself a little gap in your scarf so that you can push the inside (the pretty side that you want showing when you wear your scarf) outside.
Once your scarf is inside out (or more appropriately, outside out!), hand stitch your gap closed with a needle and thread.
Exciting stuff! It’s looking like a very nearly finished scarf now!
Step Three: Third and final step. Simply iron your scarf flat, so it looks neat and crisp. And you’re finished!
See? Not hard at all! This would make an excellent beginner project for someone who is new to sewing. If you want to add some variety to your scarves, try gathering your scarf to add a ruffle, or sewing pleats. Use your imagination, and some wonderful scarves will follow! These make excellent gifts, or an addition to your own wardrobe. Have fun!
Happy sewing everyone!
