Hello Skip To My Lou readers! I’m so happy to be here today as part of the Bake Craft Sew series! I’m Bev and I blog over at Flamingo Toes. I love sharing all sorts of projects – embroidery, home decor and sewing! I have a fun sewing project for you today that would make a great gift too – it’s this fun Fleece and Flannel Cowl Scarf!
It’s made with this super soft flannel and cozy faux sheepskin fleece that is sooo soft! I added a little contrast flannel binding with some cute lace and a vintage button. You can really have fun mixing and matching your fabrics.
It goes together super quickly and it’s a perfect project for a beginner sewist. Here’s what you’ll need to make your own!
Fleece and Flannel Cowl Scarf
- Flannel fabric: 13″ x 44″
- Fleece fabric: 15″ x 44″
- Small Flannel Fabric Pieces: 2 pieces 4″ x 9″
- 2 pieces of crochet lace: 9″
- button decoration
Place your flannel and fleece fabrics right sides together and line up the long edges of both fabrics. Sew together with a 1/2″ seam allowance. Pull the flannel slightly and line up the other long edges. Sew with a 1/2″ seam.
Put your hand in through the center of the two fabrics and grab the opposite short end. Pull the end through until the short ends line up. Match up the flannel and fleece and make sure the seams line up.
Pin the edges together. Sew around the ends with a 1/2″ seam allowance, but leave an opening of about 4″ for turning.
Turn the scarf right side out through the opening. Hand sew the opening closed.
Now your scarf if super cute and you can leave it that way if you want!
I added this fun contrasting plaid binding too! To sew that up, sew a piece of crochet lace on each long side of one of the small plaid pieces. Make sure the lace points in towards the center of the piece.
Place the other piece on top and sew the two long sides together just inside the seams for the lace. Turn right side out and press. Press under the short end on one side 1/2″.
Wrap the binding around the scarf and tuck the open end into the folded end. Sew the binding in place.
Sew a cute button onto the front of the binding for a little extra fun!
That’s it – so easy right? You can make a bunch for gifts in just a little while!
