My Snappy Scarf
Some of you know by now that I'm going to Finland, Sweden & Norway for three weeks in October with my sister and Grandparents. So I decided that I needed to make a scarf for my trip, so I could stay nice and warm.
And then, I loved it so much I made 4 more.
So I thought that I'd write up a quick tutorial on how I made these scarves. You can find it in PDF HERE!
Or, here's the quick instructions:
- 80cm lightweight woven fabric (quilting cotton, voile, rayon, or similar), approximately 42” wide
- 40cm “warm” fabric (minky, fireside, fleece, cotton knit or similar), approximately 60”wide
- 1 pkg pre-made 1” quilt binding, or make your own (about 1m)
- 8 snaps (I used Babyville plastic snaps, though metal snaps will also work)
- Snap pliers
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine
- Rotary cutting equipment or scissors
- From the woven fabric cut 2 width-of-fabric 13 ½” wide strips.
- From the warm fabric, cut 1 width-of-fabric 13 ½” wide strip.
- Sew the two woven fabric strips together along the short edge to make one long strip.
- Layer the woven fabric strip and the warm fabric strip right sides together.
- Trim to the same length (as long as possible).
- Pin fabrics together, and sew along both long edges.
- Turn right sides out and press.
- Top stitch both long edges.
- Apply quilt binding to both short edges.
- Apply snaps to quilt binding. Measure 1” up from one edge, then space the rest of the snaps 1 ½” apart.
- Wear your new scarf!
In case you're wondering, my scarves are made out of 100% cotton quilting fabric for the outside, and Fireside on the inside. 4 of 5 five scarves are Art Gallery Fabrics, including the two picture here!
Later days! Kathleen.
