I bought some fabric that coordinates with some of my African fabric (can you tell I'm obsessed with this fabric?!) so the scarves weren't completely overwhelming with pattern. The first scarf took me about 1.5 hours and the final scarf took me about 20 minutes. So there is definitely a learning curve... that and I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to make it all one finished tube for a majority of that 1.5 hours. Here we go...
1. cut fabric about 2 yards long and about 10-12" wide (I held up one of my favorite scarfs for width reference).
3. sew lengths together. You should have one long tube at this point.
5. pin two sides together right next to each other (i.e. color to color) and sew. continue to sew onto the other panels (pattern) until you are unable to flip it inside out.
|color panels are pinned together and I started sewing around the seam|
|the binder clip is just to hold the crease tight while sewing|
I also love how you can have as much or as little of the pattern and/or color showing as you want depending on how you arrange it.
