Remember when I mentioned that some of that stash flannel was going to become a faux Burberry scarf? It was a really easy project and great for some instant sewing gratification.
- The original piece was about 14 x 43 inches. I cut it in half and joined the 7 inch ends with a french seam.
- I sewed the edges just as you would for a napkin or tea towel: fold all four sides 1/4 inch and press, then fold over again, press and pin.
- Then I top-stitched the edges down. I mitered my corners, but don’t think it was necessary.
recycle: This would be a great way to save a flannel shirt from the landfill. If you have smaller scraps of flannel, just add a few more french seams.
