Simple Yard Scarf
You will need:
1 yard double gauze
Cotton thread e.g. Aurifil Mako 50wt
1. Cut in half across the width of the yard, selvedge to selvedge.
2. Lay selvedges over each other, right sides facing up. Sew two rows of stitches close to top selvedge to make a central flat seam.
3. Bring the long edges right sides together and sew along using 3/8" seam (double gauze tends to fray easily) to make a tube with open ends. Press the seam open. Turn tube through to right side, press again.
4. You can leave the ends as they are- double gauze has soft fringed selvedges. or you can add a little lace trim. I sewed mine on the inside of the tube so the ends of the tube were left open to keep a floaty effect. The selvedge are so pretty on this print that I wanted to make a feature of them.
This fabric was bought from Eternal Maker a few months back. You can find their current range of double gauze prints here. You could do the same with voile or lawn, or any light soft fabric- silk even!
