We were inspired by Anna Maria's Figure 8 Scarf tutorial, but our version is a little lighter, smaller and simpler to make. Each scarf takes just 1/4 yard each of two 54" fabrics. Here's what we did:
- Trim the edges of your two fabrics straight, making sure they are the same size.
- Put the two fabrics right sides together and sew down both long sides, making a tube.
- Press seams to one side and turn your scarf right side out, then press flat.
- Turn raw edges under 1/2" on one open end of scarf and press. The raw edges should be inside of the opening and the folded edge should be pressed so the front and back line up nicely.
- Bring the other edge of the scarf around, twisting it a half turn so the opposite prints are next to each other, and insert it into the turned under opening.
- Pin and topstitch the ends together.
Sweet, it's done! And look how happy these lovely folks look in their scarves.
