I used a light weight cotton fabric which I didn't think would hang nice but turns out it works perfect, just don't miss my step 3!! I also tried it with a jersey material and I REALLY liked it!
Obviously play with the length and width, you can make it longer and fold it around for a more full scarf.
Fold together from both sides towards the middle at the ends and sew....
When both ends are sewn, match together creating a loop... (For a nice hang, TWIST the fabric a few times in the middle) matching together the ends, nice side in and crappy side out. I sewed about a 1/2 an inch in loosing some lenght but making a nice solid line and then trimming along the new stitch and getting rid of the crap from step 2.
The finished product will have a nice gathering at the back and will hang nicely, giving you the ability to use more types of fabric. I suggest a really light weight cotton, linnen or jersey.
BY THE WAY I am no seamstress, I have NEVER taken a sewing class, oh wait that's a lie... I did in Jr High School but I don't think that counts?! I can't follow a pattern to save my life, but I would have a better chance at it by looking at pictures. My point is that I mess up A LOT. I always learn the hard way, mostly because I don't follow direction, and I'm not just talking about sewing!!! At least
when you learn this way you almost never do it wrong again!
HAVE FUN :)
