Call it what you want – but basically it’s a neck accessory
- ¼ yd of 44/45” fabric
- Coordinating thread
- Velcro (or another kind of closure)
Whatcha gotta do:
- With right sides together, fold the piece of fabric lengthwise so it is now 22” long.
- Sew along the (3) raw edges with ½” seam allowance, making sure to leave at least 2” unsewn so you can turn fabric right-side out.
- Clip corners and press seam (makes for less bulky corners and crisp seam appearance).
- Turn fabric right-side out and press seam again.
- Top stitch. I lengthen the stitch a bit and sew about 1/8” from the edge.This will also close the 2" opening you left for turning the fabric out.
Play with the scarf on your neck to decide how you want it to lay. I overlapped it so that it closed closer to my neck while the bottom half fanned out. While looking in the mirror, I place pins where the Velcro should be placed. I used sticky sided Velcro, but I added a pump of hot glue just to make sure it isn’t going anywhere!
- (2) swatches of fabric
- 5.5” circle
- 4.5” circle
There is a super simple and great tutorial on how to make these here. I layered two of the YoYos, because I thought it made it a little more fantastic. Rather than sew a button into the center as was done in the tutorial, I again referred to my hot glue gun – squeezed a bit in the opening of the top flower and fit the button in.
Glue gun encounter #3 – I wanted the flower to be removable, so when/if I make more down the road “in my spare time” and I mix and match. So I bought some pin backs like this, and glued the flower to it… And then the flower to the neck wrap/scarf/collar, or whatever you want to call it… Cute?!
