Scarves!

So the ever popular accessory the scarf! I have to admit I am a bit smitten myself. I have been making several and find it is best to use stretchy and thin weight material otherwise you end up with bulky heavy scarf and who wants that in this lovely spring time weather?
So I am loving tee shirt material it is a versatile fabric with so many uses! For this project I used black tee shirt material $5.99/yrd at JoAnns used a 40% off coupon for this and a  filigree designed tee shirt material found on a clearance isle at Walmart for $1.88/yrd. I had two yrds of each material and cut it vertically to utilize the length of the scarf and to get the double sided look I wanted.
So once I had my pieces trimmed. I placed the fabric with front sides together and pinned all the way around the material. I sewed  three sides together completely with about 1/8 of a inch of material as my seam. Once I had three sides sewn I worked on the third I stopped about 3/4 of the way down the third side leaving an opening for me to turn the scarf right side out.
So I started with the corners and a closed lid ink pen to push the corners out. Since the fabric is stretchy this part was a breeze! Once the scarf was turned out correctly I sewed my opening shut. This is the final result. Still needs some ironing.
There you have it another successful accessory on a budget! For one scarf cost is $5.47!
