Fall is here so it might be time for a Cowl/Tube Scarf Sewing Project!



Hi There Fabricworms!

Fall is upon us and the chills are breezing through our studio!  So for a little lunch break pick me up, our very own Fabricworm Staffer Bre, came up with this super quick and easy Tube Scarf!  It literally takes 10-15 minutes to cut out and sew together.  And it only takes a yard of fabric!  These are the kind of projects we love. Cute, simple, fast, and ready to wear now!



I can’t wait to make one in Anna Maria Horner’s new Innocent Crush Voile.  I want to make one for me in this:




And one for my husband in completely this:


Of course these are the Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush Voiles, so you'll have to wait a bit longer for these!


 It looks fantastic in a cowl drape too!



Here’s how we made it.

You need a ½ yard of each print.

1.  Cut your half yards into quarter yards (9”x44”). 
2.  Sew your shell fabric together at the short ends making one long piece (about 9”x88”).  Do this again with your lining fabric.
3.   Sew your two long pieces together, right sides facing eachother, leaving the short sides open on each side. 
4.  Turn right side out. 
5.  Press. 
6.  Slip one open end of the scarf into the other open end about 1 inch (this will make the scarf into a loop).  Tuck the outer raw edge under a ½ inch and pin in place. 
7.  Finally, top stitch your tube scarf shut. Voila! 



This scarf would make fabulous Christmas presents for all your friends!

Yours In Sewing,

Andrea

LOVE IT!!! I have been thinking about making a scarf out of Anna Maria Horner's New Line. Just wasn't sure how I wanted to go about it. Thanks for the idea.
