30-Minute Gift: Charm Square Scarf






Hi, my name is Trish and I blog over at notes of sincerity.  Today I am going to teach you how to create a fun and cozy scarf for those cooler days that lie ahead.
 


1 charm pack of Patisserie by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda
 20” x WOF* of flannel in desired choice

This is actually a very easily adjustable pattern that you could increase or decrease the length of your scarf depending on what you prefer.  You could also use your favorite scraps of fabric.




First, you will need 34 of the 5” charm squares.  So pick out your favorites and place side by side in sets of two.  When the desired pairs are matched, stack together.


Sew each pair using a ¼” seam (I prefer using a chain stitch method.).


You now have 17 pairs, give seams a good little press with a hot iron.


Open pairs and press to one side.


Sew pairs together, locking center seams that are ironed in opposite directions ...


... until you have the full length of the scarf.

 

Again, press those newly sewn seams with a hot iron.  Then press in one direction. Cut flannel in two strips measuring 9 ½” x WOF*.  Sew both pieces together, end to end with RST*, press seam with a hot iron, open and iron to one side, then cut to 76½”.


Pin scarf front to scarf back, RST*.


Begin sewing around perimeter with a ¼” seam.  Secure beginning and ending stitches, leaving a gap you will be able to put your hand in to, enabling you to turn it right side out. Once scarf is sewn, clip the corners below seams, in order to bring corners to a nice point once turned right side out.  Give seams a press with a hot iron.

 

Turn right side out, pushing out corners to a point.  Press perimeter carefully, making sure it lies flat.


Sew around the perimeter using a “scant” ¼” seam.  Secure seams at beginning and ending of stitches.


 
One 9" x 76" cute and snuggly scarf that looks cute with a denim jacket and makes a fun Christmas gift for those special ones in your life.

 *RST = right side together
*WOF = width of fabric

I think I have to make one... or a dozen or so of these! I also knit and usually knit a scarf or two to coordinate with my coats and sometimes a hat. As a professional Dog Trainer in Seattle, having a scarf is essential to staying healthy, but knit scarves can catch doggy toenails, and one rip or snag or chew (puppies never do that!) and it's toast! I think this is the solution to my dilemma. I know the fabric can still get injured, but I can darn it much easier. Oh! I can even embroider my logo on it! Cha-ching! I will have to make some fun ones, too. And matching hats! This is incredibly adorable with the jean jacket! Thank you for sharing!!
