If you’re one of those people who needs a last minute Christmas present, a friend’s birthday is coming up, or you just would love a circle scarf, this tutorial might be awesome for you! I was so surprised when I went into American Apparel and saw their circle scarves for $34! I decided to figure out how to make one for way less, because I knew it would be super easy.
One thing different from the regular tutorials out there is that I doubled up the fabric on my scarves. First I did this because I was using a very thin polyester material, but then I continued using it even though I had a t-shirt material. I found that it gave the scarf a fullness and made it a lot thicker!
First begin with a rectangular piece of material (40 inches x 70 inches).
Fold it over lengthwise, so the right sides are facing each other, and then sew along the lengthwise opening.
Next, reach one arm all the way through the tube at the seam, and grab a hold of the end. Pull the end under and back through the tube so that it comes to math the end at the top. I know this may sound a bit confusing, so I have a video here showing you how to do it!
Now once you have matched up the sides, and you have another tube, sew it, leaving an opening about 3 inches before you finish.
Using the opening, turn the scarf right side out. Then use a whip stitch to close that opening. Then, VOILA! Finished!
I hope this tutorial gives you a great present and an awesome new accessory (for way less!).
