Lauren makes a Circle Scarf

My sister, Lauren, is not a particularly crafty human.  We say that she got all the math and science genes, while I got all the liberal-arts and crafty ones. We are perfect opposites.

That being said, Lauren crafted last night. 

Lauren successfully turned a piece of fabric into a functional clothing item. 

And it was awesome.

SIMPLE CIRCLE SCARF

Materials:

  • 1 yard heavenly, soft material
  • Thread (matching or contrasting, whatever your heart desires)
  • Scissors
  • Sewing Pins
  • Sewing Machine

A trip to the fabric store yielded a yard of some of the softest knit jersey I've laid my hands on.  Unfortunately, it was a remnant piece so I can't tell you much more than that. 

  1. Locate the right side of your fabric and fold it lengthwise (with the outside facing in). 
  2. Pin and sew along the long side of the fabric (creating a tube)

3. Flip right side out

4. Line up the ends of your tube, pinning so that the outside is facing in (there will be a section that you will be unable to pin as you'll have to turn the tube right-side out)

5. Once you've sewn all that you can: right the tube, pin the gap, and whip stitch the hole closed (with matching thread or something contrasting for some pizzaz!)

6. Enjoy that soft, delicious coziness
