Chenille Scarf Directions
These directions and pictures were submitted by Cheri C. She comments, "Some friends of ours gave us these directions, and they seem to turn out well and are very fun to wear (if it is cold out!)."

Instructions:

1. Choose your fabric. Loosely woven flannels work or homespuns work the best for this scarf.

2. Cut five strips of fabric on the bias as wide and as long as you want your scarf to be.

3. Mark a line down the middle and pin the five strips together (as layers).

4. Sew down the middle line using a tight stitch.

5. Continue to sew lines 5/8 inch apart out on both sides.

10. Wash and dry scarves. It helps to throw them in with a load of darks as sometimes the fabrics will bleed.
