SUEDEsays™ . . . Make a Fringed Scarf
This awesome scarf rocks any look – make it in a lightweight, crinkly fabric and add funky fringe on the end to make it as Preppy, Girly or Cool as you want!
You Will Need:
- 3/4 yard of 45" wide lightweight fabric – try gauze, handkerchief linen or super-soft cotton
- 2/3 yard of fringe trim – we used pom pom trim #1872087
- Marking Pencil
- Straight Pins
- Sewing Machine
- Matching Thread
- Hand Sewing Needle
- Cut two lengths of fabric, each measuring 10" long and running across the entire width of the fabric.
- Cut two lengths of fringe, each measuring 10" long.
- On the RIGHT side of one of the scarf pieces, pin fringe to one of the short ends, matching the straight edge of the fringe header with the cut edge of the fabric. Repeat with other length of fringe on the other end of the scarf.
- Machine-baste the fringe to the scarf, stitching through the fringe header.
- With RIGHT sides together, pin the two scarf pieces together, matching all cut edges and making sure that the dangling part of the fringe is encased in between the two layers of fabric.
- Using a ½" seam allowance, machine-stitch the short sides of the scarf together, sewing through all thicknesses and making sure that the fringe is securely attached. Stitch each seam all the way to the edge.
- Using a ½" seam allowance, machine stitch one long edge of the scarf, stitching all the way to each end; the stitching will cross with the seam stitching on the short ends. This will help reinforce the corners.
- Using a ½" seam allowance, begin machine stitching the remaining long edge, starting from the end and stitching to about the middle of the scarf. Leave a 4" opening in the before completing the seam.
- Press seams to blend stitches.
- Clip corners diagonally, being careful not to clip through the corner stitching. Clipping corners will reduce bulk when the scarf is turned right side out, resulting in nice, sharp corners.
- Turn the scarf RIGHT side out; gently poke the corners as needed to get them crisp and sharp.
- Slip-stitch the opening closed by hand.
- Press the scarf so that all edges are crisp and smooth.
Now you're ready to ROCK your hot new scarf!
