Make use of your name labels to add to gifts for your family and friends. Since the days are short and the nights longer, making reversible scarves will be a welcome gift and a fun way to practice newly found sewing skills. These scarves are one size fits all, and have a wool and cotton side.
- Several yards of wool fabric
- Cutting mat
- Cotton print fabric
- Fabric rotary cutter
- Sewing machine
- Measure out the wool and cotton fabric and cut to length on the cutting mat. Make sure both materials have the same measurement. The length and width are up to you.
- Place right sides together and start placing the pins along edges with the cotton side up. Make sure that each corner includes the pins and each short end as well.
- Stitch all the seams, leaving a 1/2 inch opening at one short end. Try to leave only a 1/4 inch of fabric around the outside of each seam.
- Clip corner material at a sharp 45-degree angle without clipping the seams.
- Turn the fabric right side out by pulling it through the open seam.
- Iron the scarf to make sure it is flat and the seams are crisp.
- Using a slip stitch, sew the opening closed.
This project should only take about 30 minutes to make, and it is very simple. It is a good project for a beginner or even a child learning how to sew. Be sure to add the tag when stitching the open end closed.
