I whipped up this little scarf and thought I would share with you how I did it. It is super easy! This is also my first tute so go easy on me!
I made it light weight because it doesn’t get freezing cold for long in my part of the world, but this could easily be made warmer with some batting or some thicker fleece for the back. It would be lovely with some soft fluffy material on the back!
You will need –
Step 1. Lay your 16 squares out in a long strip, check placement for even colour spread. Sew together using ¼” seam.
Step 2. Cutting your backing fabric. From the corduroy I cut 2 strips 5” wide x width of fabric, trimmed off the selvedge’s and joined them together. I left it longer until the next step.
Step 3. Lay your backing fabric strip right side up with your pieced front right side down on top. I started at one end and pinned at each seam and then at the other end I trimmed the backing fabric to the same length.
Step 4. Sew all the way around with a ¼” seam leaving a 2.5” gap in one end. Trim off the corners.
Step 5. Turn right sides out and press lightly.
Step 6. Top stitch about 1/8” in from the edge all the way around the scarf.
Yield – a one of a kind scarf that measures approximately 73” x 4.5”.
This is so I don’t look like all the other school mums! LOL
