Cozy Scarf Tutorial

It's Day 10 of...

It's a stylish scarf that is simple to sew!  See how to make your own...

*Basic sewing items (pins, scissors, thread...)
*Sewing machine
*Coordinating fabric
*Sew-on snap
*Paper (3-8 1/2 in. by 11 in. pieces) and a pencil

1.  Fold each of your three pieces of paper in half (like a hamburger).  Cut the halves apart and tape them together into one long piece by matching the shorter ends together.  This creates a long rectangular pattern piece that is 51 inches by 5 1/2 inches.

2. Use your pattern to cut out two long pieces--one felt and one coordinating fabric piece.  (Tip: The fabric I used was a heavier weight fabric.  I think this project works better using a more durable fabric than your basic cotton.)  Place the two pieces of fabric wrong sides together, match up the corners, and pin them in place.

3. Sew along the perimeter of the pieces leaving a 4 inch gap on one side.  (Tip: I used a 1/4 inch seam allowance.)

4. Turn the scarf right side out by feeding it through the 4 inch gap.  Sew the gap up and iron the scarf to give it a nicer, smoother shape.  (Optional: I sewed a snap onto the inside of mine so it would would criss cross nicely when worn.  Attach a lovely flower or button embellishment on the opposite side you sewed your snap to hide any threads.)

Enjoy your scarf on the cold, wintry days!
