I started with 2/3 yard of this gorgeous plaid fabric that was 45".
Then cut on the long fold to create two pieces.
With right sides together I sewed the two short ends together to create one long piece. In all honesty, I did not line up my plaid. I knew the seam wouldn't show and it wasn't that big of a deal for me. :)
Now comes the tricky part. My sewing machine came with an edge curler foot, so that's what I used.
This part is a little difficult if you've never done it before. You have to feed your fabric through the curl foot, and it can be a little frustrating until you get the hang of it. Keep trying because it's worth it! If you don't have a curl foot, you could always press the edges down twice and sew close to the edge.
You can see here how it curls and finishes the edge all nice and pretty.
The ends were the salvages, so I didn't need to finish them.
Because of the length, I'm able to wear my scarf several different ways. Here I wrapped it around my neck twice.
Here it is wrapped around my neck once loosely.
And here, I tied the short ends together and made it into an infinity scarf. I wrapped it around my neck twice.
I absolutely love how it turned out! It goes with so many items in my closet, so I'm sure you'll see me wearing it here a lot!
