I guess I have a thing for chicks with bikini tops and scarves! I have great news for you on Yoko, her scarf is pretty damn easy to make (thank god!). Projects like these are always great because it’s so easy, cheap (the materials cost me a total of about $10), and really feels like you’re making progress super fast!
I N S T R U C T I O N S:
seam allowances are 1/2″ on all my patterns, unless otherwise noted
1. Cut out your pieces according to the picture below:
2. Sew the pieces together following the guide below. Press the seams open.3. Using your fusible web tape, take the bias tape and cover the seam lines.4. OPTIONAL STEP: Top stitch all the red bias tape down. I like to do this for added stability and I think it looks nicer :35. Fold the scarf together with the right sides facing each other, and sew it together. Press the seam open.
6. This step is a little tricky. In all the reference shots there is a zipper, but really I didn’t think it was necessary and tbh in the animation you never really see it–so I decided to fake the zipper closure. Sew 1/2″ down from the top corner, and 1″ up from the bottom corner. Trim the bulk then flip the whole scarf inside out.
7. Cut out (2) 8″ lengths of bias tape, open it up and sew it together all along the ‘ditch’ on one side.
8. Press the seam flat, and then sew it together to create a a loop. Press the seam open one more time, then flip it inside out. On the back of the loop mark 1/4″ from the edge with a piece of chalk.
9. Take bias tape loop you just made and sandwich it in the opening of the scarf, using your chalk mark as a guide. Top stitch it down.
If all went according to plan it should look like the image below!
You’re done! I’m sure it looks beautiful! Send me some shots of your finished Yoko Scarf :)!
