This is my beloved Tina Givens fabric that I have been hoarding for several months. I LOVE it! It's if the most beautiful shade of purple. I hate that the color doesn't show true in these photos. Anyway, I bought it to make something for my daughter for fall, but couldn't decide which pattern to go with and time got away from me so it's been sitting waiting for inspiration to hit me. I had two yards so I decided to use a yards for myself. I never make anything for myself. So, I decided I would just this once. I seriously almost cried when I cut my fabric. I love it that much.
I started by ironing my fabric (it was also prewashed) and then I cute it into four strips of 42" (full fabric width) by 7" using my beloved rotary cutter (it makes my life so much easier).
Then I pinned the short ends of two strips, right sides together and sewed them using a 1/2" seam. Then press your seams out. Do this on twice so you have two very long strips.
Now, pin both long strips, right sides together. Leave one short end open and fold downr 1/2" and iron. Sew using a 1/4" seam, but leaving the short end you ironed open. Basically, it'll look like a really long, skinny pillowcase.
Sorry about the picture. I didn't have much makeup on and my hair, well, EEWW! Sorry the bottom got cut off. This is what happens when you ask your husband to take a picture of you in your new scarf while he's busy watching people beat eachother up (also known as boxing).
This is my first tutorial so please forgive me if this is hard to understand. Feel free to contact me if I completely confused you!
