The weather outside is frightful...OK so this week it isn't so frightful, but we can get another cold snap at any time and this is just cute to wear as an accessory.
¾ yard fabric
Gathering thread – thicker thread that wont break.
Cut four 5 inch by width of fabric pieces
Sew two pieces together on the short end. Repeat this for the other two.
You should now have two 5 x 88ish pieces
Find the center length wise and press. Press wrong sides together this way the gathering thread will sit down in the crease.
Using the pressed center line as your guide, sew your gathering thread down the whole length of pieces. ****do not pull to gather****
Gather to desired length. Tie the two pull strings together to hold the gather. I put the scarf around my neck and push the gathers up. That way I get the length I want for sure.
Fuss with your gathers to make it perfect for each wearing.
** If you want a longer scarf get 1 yard of fabric and cut 6 5 inch pieces. Sew 3 together instead of 2. The rest of the instructions will be the same.
I apologize for the multiple fabrics used in the pictures. I had attention problems while writing this tutorial. It took me three scarves to get all the pictures I felt were needed.
