DIY: Circle Scarf

    |



Happy Monday! I'm back with another diy and this week it's the circle scarf. This is a pretty easy tutorial you just have to make sure you have the right size fabric. I used a wild/safari looking print fabric that I was given for free when I attended the sewing conference last month. The fabric was about 2 1/2 yards and I cut off half a yard because I wanted my scarf to be 2 yards long. Here are the steps.

Supplies:
1 - 2 yards of lightweight knit fabric (the longer the fabric, the more you can do with it)
pins
scissors
sewing machine


Fold the fabric in half lengthwise right sides facing each other. Make sure the selvage edges are together and pin.
Sew a zig zag stitch about 1/2 inch away from the edge
You should now have a tube. Iron the seams flat. Turn the fabric inside out.
You can stop here if you want. Because most knits do not fray, you can wear your scarf as is.
Bring the bottom right side of the fabric to the top right side of the fabric. You should now have a half tube.
Sew the fabric together around the raw edges with a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Leave  about an inch opening.
Pull the scarf through the opening to the right side of the fabric.
Hand stitch the opening closed using a slip stitch.




You can also check out a quick video tutorial by DIYRaven to get a better idea. There is also a cool diagram from American Apparel showing 10 ways you can wear a circle scarf.
