Summer Scarves 3 Ways

Summer Scarves 3 Ways

Hi, it's Kimberly from Sweet Red Poppy and I'm excited to share three quick and easy scarf sewing tutorials with you today!

Each scarf takes less than an hour to sew and they make perfect gifts! I'll be sewing up a few for my mom for Mother's Day (and a couple for myself too!).

Summer Scarves

Pom Pom Scarf

Summer Scarves

Supplies Needed

Instructions

Cut a rectangle 72" long x 15" wide.

If you would like to use 1 yard instead of two yards of fabric you can piece the rectangle together using two shorter rectangles.

Summer Scarves

Fold the rectangle in half and cut the fabric so the ends of the scarf taper to a 2-3 inch point.

Pin the pom-pom trim along the perimeter of the fabric so that the pom-poms are facing inwards.

Summer Scarves

Using a zigzag stitch, sew the trim all the way around the scarf. The zig-zag stitch should just barely catch the edge of the fabric. This will prevent the fabric from unraveling. Overlap the ends of the pom-pom trim and secure with a zigzag stitch.

Flip the pom-pom trim towards the wrong side of the fabric so that just a bit of the trim peeks out from behind the fabric. Pin in place along the entire scarf.

With a straight stitch, sew 1/4 away from the edge of the fabric around the entire scarf taking care to backstitch at the beginning and end.

When looking at the scarf from the back, the edge of the trim should cover the edge of the fabric completely to keep it from unraveling.

Tassel Scarf

Summer Scarves

Supplies Needed

Instructions

Cut a rectangle 60” x 17”

Summer Scarves

Sew a basting stitch along both long edges of the fabric 3/8" from the edge.

The basting stitch will serve as a guide as you iron the fabric.

Summer Scarves

Fold the fabric along the basting stitch and press with a hot iron, then fold again to conceal the raw edge. Repeat this process on the opposite side.

Summer Scarves

With a 1/4” seam allowance sew a straight line along the folded edge of both sides of the scarf.

Summer Scarves

Gently remove the basting stitch from both sides.

Summer Scarves

Place the scarf with the right side facing upwards on a table. Pin the tasseled trim to the fabric so that the tassels are facing upwards instead of dangling down beneath the fabric.

Pin the trim in place and sew a zig-zag stitch along the edge of the trim catching the edge of the fabric.

Summer Scarves

Fold the trim towards the wrong side of the fabric and in it in place. Sew along the edge of the fabric with a 1/4” seam allowance.

Summer Scarves

Press all seams with a hot iron and you're done!

Infinity Scarf

Summer Scarves

Supplies Needed

Instructions

Cut two rectangles 15” x 42”

Summer Scarves

Place the fabric together with wrong sides together. Sew the two pieces together with a 1/4 inch seam. Iron the seam to one side and fold the fabric together with right sides together and sew with a 3/8" seam.

This will create a french seam that encloses the raw edge.

Repeat this process on the other side to create a circular piece of fabric.

Summer Scarves

Sew a basting stitch along both long edges of the fabric 3/8ths inch from the edge.
The basting stitch will serve as a guide as you iron the fabric.

Fold the fabric along the basting stitch and press with a hot iron, then fold again to conceal the raw edge. Repeat this process on the opposite side.

Summer Scarves

With a 1/4” seam allowance sew a straight line along the folded edge of one side of the scarf.

Pin the trim to the other side of the scarf that has not bee sewn yet. Pin it in place along the edge of the fabric and sew it in place using a zig zag stitch and a zipper foot.
