How to: Funky Strip Scarf

This scarf was inspired by my apparent subconcious love
of floral fabric, lovingly pointed out by my 21 yr old dgt.

This scarf is mostly decorative.
But is stylishly warm and very soft and adds to your funky style points

Materials needed: I use anti pill fleece .
For a two color scarf you will need a 1/4 yard of each color
scissors, a rotary cutter and mat.

1. Placing right sides together,

2. sew a 1/4" seam on both sides of the scarf. (right and left)

Leave bottom & top open. Turn inside out.
3. Line up side seams, this now becomes the middle seam.
TIP: To eliminate bulkiness, pin the side seams together.
Make sure excess fabrice from seams
lays on either side of your new middle seam

Sew 1/4" seam on either side of middle seam.

4. Using rotary cutter, cut 1 1/2" strips from fold to 1/4" from middle seam.

5. Shake out, twist & wear!
There is another version for sale in my Etsy shop.
