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
- 1 yard heavenly, soft material
- Thread (matching or contrasting, whatever your heart desires)
- 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.
- Locate the right side of your fabric and fold it lengthwise (with the outside facing in).
- 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
