Instructions for super simple scarf:
You will need:
1/2 yard cotton fabric for the body of the scarf. Cut the fabric in half selvage to selvage to get two 9" x 42" pieces. In the photo below the cotton fabric in shown folded in half - it is actually twice as long.
4 rectangles of silk dupioni (or a complimentary cotton fabric) measuring 9" x 6"
First, sew one silk rectangle (or cotton) right sides together, to each of the 4 short ends of the cotton fabric. Press seam allowances towards the scarf body.
You will have two identical pieces with lengths of the cotton sandwiched by the silk rectangles.
Next, sew these two lengths (right sides together) all the way around - leaving a 4 inch opening in the center of the cotton length for turning.
Clip all four corners before turning.
Turn scarf inside out and Press flat.
Whip stitch opening closed by hand. This part doesn't have to be perfect as it will likely be behind your neck!
That's it. Please do make this scarf - it is so simple and you will get tons of compliments. I wore mine to my boys' school assembly yesterday and one woman offered to buy it!
Let me know if you have any questions. I'll try and take photos as I sew the above scarf together.
I'm out of time. Off to pick abigail up and take her to swimming lessons and then off to view ezra's planetarium presentation - he told me I can't miss it because they painted all the planets with glow-in-the-dark paint and installed a red light and he will be presenting Jupiter....well you get the idea.
Thanks so much for stopping by this space!
