I'm finally going to share with you a Christmas present I made that was a sewing project. (I had to give my wrists a break after all that crocheting!). I had purchased a couple yards of rayon challis from Fabric.com in few different prints. I just love this fabric. It feels very nice and drapes well. Two yards is enough to make two scarves, so you can make one for yourself and a friend. This scarf is perfect for an extra light layer in the springtime. I made them for Christmas, but in California the seasons can get a bit blurred.
This sewing project is super simple. It's ideal for beginners because it's very forgiving if your seams aren't prefect. I added a twist to the scarves before sewing to help with the drape, making this a Mobius Scarf. [It gets that name from the Möbius strip in mathematics]. I promise it's easier to do than it was to explain how I did it! Let's get to the tutorial...
The fabric I used is sold out, as the inventory on Fabric.com usually sells quickly. You can search for "rayon challis" though and still find lots of great options.
I used a 1/4" seam allowance
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. If you make a scarf using this tutorial, I'd love to see it! Take a picture and tag me on Instagram or Twitter, or post it to my Facebook page. And be sure to follow me on Bloglovin' or Google+ to keep up with the latest on my blog!
