Using leftover fabric ( from the Charlie bag made earlier ) I made these scarves. Whilst out shopping last week I saw similar ones for sale and thought " I can do that “. Maybe it’s been done before on the site ?
It took me about 30 mins. per scarf. The brown one I made first and was approx 10” wide by 2 yards long. Made by joining to make long strip ( flat fell seam ) , narrow hemmed, Shirring about 1" in and then 1 1/2 " in from both sides. Starting about 1" from the bottom/ top edge. securing the shirring at beginning and end. Then I made a strip so that scarf feeds through this to fasten. On the grey scarf I have showed this by placing a piece of card behind so that it can be seen. This scarf is narrower and longer.
Leftover lengths joined to make desirable width by approx 2 yds or 2 m. fabrics are soft feel polyesters. Recycled from old skirts !!
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
