It is a mistake to suppose that with the arrival of cold weather for fabric accessories there is only a place on the shelf. An excellent alternative to warm knitted scarves will be fabric, the main thing is to choose a suitable lining that can warm them and find time to sew. Elegant scarves can be sewn in addition to the already existing wardrobe. They are also good for children who are not always ready to tie a “tickling” knitted scarf around their necks.
Work on the creation of a scarf does not take much time. The length and width of the product are selected based on age and personal preferences. Approximately an adult scarf can have a size of 130x28 cm, and a child’s size can be 120x18 cm.
For sewing will need 2 types of fabric. To make the scarf comfortable to wear, the fabric should not be embossed and stiff.
For the seamy side, a cotton fleece that is pleasant to the body and which is able to provide warmth is preferable. The front of the product is not as stringent requirements. It is better to use a natural fabric with a smooth texture.
If new fabrics are chosen for work, they should be pre-wetted and dried, as the degree of shrinkage may be different for them.
Our scarf will be stitched. From each type of fabric we cut out 2 rectangles, the width of which corresponds to the width of the scarf, taking into account the allowances, and the length is equal to half of the finished product.
We join the fragments face up inside and stitch along the perimeter. At the exit we get a pipe with a cut in the middle. turn the scarf through the slit.
Bending the scarf in half, we find the place of the joint. Gently stitching facial tissue. And then purl away from the edges towards the center, but not to the end.
In order to close up the edge we use a secret seam.
Our scarf is ready. If desired, it can be assembled on the principle of sleep, add embroidery or decorative stitching.
