WHAT YOU NEED:
- ½ yard of fleece fabric which is 58” to 60” wide
- Needle and Thread
- Scissor or Rotary Cutter
- Sewing Machine
- Basic Sewing Skills
STEP 1: HOW TO CUT FABRIC
Sometimes fabric store do not cut the fabric straight. So, the first step is to cut the fabric about 18" wide. Also, cut off the salvage.
STEP 2: SEWING THE LONG END
Fold and pin the fabric in half, lining up the long sides, right sides together.
With the sewing machine, sew the long side together using a 1/2" seam allowance. Reinforce the beginning and ending stitches by backtacking. Backtacking is stitching a few stitches forward, then stitch backward a few stitch and then begin stitching forward again.
The scarf is now a long tube of fabric.
STEP 3: CENTERING AND IRONING
Lay the scarf on the ironing board with the seam in the middle of the tube. With an iron, press the seam open.
STEP 4: TURNING AND BRINGING END TOGETHER
Once the seam is pressed open, turn the fabric tube right side facing out.
Pull one end of the the scarf all the way up to the other end. Do not twist the fabric as you pull. The seams should be aligned on top of each other. Neatly align the edges of the short ends with right sides together. Pin all the way around the circle.
Take the pinned ends to the sewing machine and stitch around the circle using a 1/2" seam, leaving a 4 or 5 inch opening. This opening will be used to turn the scarf right side out.
STEP 5: FINISHING
It is time to turn the scarf right side out. Reach into the opening and begin pulling the fabric out through the opening. Continue pulling until the scarf is entirely out.
Turn the raw edges of the opening inside the hole, pinch the edges together and pin the opening closed.
Hand sew the opening closed.
