Tutorial for making a neck scarf in minutes
Enjoy sewing at home!  

A simple scarf can go a long way.  You can tie it around your neck making your outfit totally cute, tie it on your purse, or even tie it in your hair for a headband!

What you need: 2 1/2 yards (45" wide) chiffon fabric (makes 2 scarfs), thread, and scissors.
(I got my fabric for $1.50 a yard at Wal-Mart.. that's less then $2 a scarf!)

Cut your fabric down the center lengthwise so you have two pieces that measure about 22 1/2-inches wide by 2 1/2 yards long.  TIP: It's easiest to fold your fabric in-half lengthwise and cut on the fold.

 Hem the short ends of your fabric first with a 1/4-inch hem.

Next hem the long ends of your fabric - remember to back-stitch where you start and end.

Ta da!  Now you have a simple scarf that can change the way you look!  So cute, so girlie!

I raided my mom's closet while I was in Utah and found a lovely scarf to wear to a Christmas Party.  When I asked her where she got it she said she made it.. of course!  Thanks mom for doing this first and figuring out the right length.. love you!
