With January only about half over, there’s still plenty of time to make a beautiful new scarf to last the rest of the winter. This easy, reversible scarf features one side that is soft warm wool and the other cheerful cotton. The best part is that one size fits all, as this scarf makes the perfect gift!
You will need…
- Lightweight wool or wool-blend fabric
- Lightweight cotton print fabric that is complimentary to the wool
- Cutting mat
- Clear quilting ruler
- Rotary cutter
- Sewing machine
- Lay the wool fabric on a cutting mat and use a ruler and rotary cutter to cut the fabric to the desired length. Repeat with the cotton fabric, using the same length.
- Place the right sides of fabric together with the cotton side on the top. Sewing on cotton is easier than wool, since it minimizes slipping. Pin the fabric together at each end and at regular intervals in between to hold the pieces in place.
- Use your sewing machine to machine-stitch all four seams, leaving ½-inch opening in the middle of one short end.
- Careful not to cut your stitching, clip the corners at a 45-degree angle so they will be sharp corners when you turn the scarf right side out.
- Turn the fabric right side out and press the seams with an iron.
- Use a slip-stitch the close the opening.
