Head Scarves are fun, a great fashion look and a terrific way to pull your hair back!
Two Make It Quick options are fast enough to make one for every outfit! The crocheted version is easy enough for beginners. Fabric scarves are easy as 1-2-3! Cut out a triangle, finish the edges, add a tie! Then embellish with decorative trim, machine embroidery or crocheted flowers.

Fabric: 3/8 Yard of 45" wide fabric for one scarf. 5/8 Yard of 45" wide fabric will make 4 scarves.
1. Cut out a right triangle, 17" x 17" x 23". Cut out a strip for the tie, 1½" x 45".
Make It Quick Tip: Instead of making the tie, use Coats Extra Wide Double Fold Bias Tape.
2. Press ¼" to the wrong side on each short side of the triangle. Press a crease lengthwise down the center of the tie, wrong sides of fabric together. Press ¼" under on each short end, then press ¼" on the lengthwise edges under, raw edges meeting at center crease. Press the lengthwise crease again, with the raw edges folded to the middle.
3. Sew a narrow hem on the short sides of the triangle by folding the edges under again and stitching in place.
4. Mark the center of the tie and the center of the long side of the triangle with a pin. Slide the raw edge of the triangle into the fold of the tie matching the centers; pin in place. Stitch, beginning at the end of the tie and sewing the other end. Backstitch at each end.
Make It Quick Tip: To make starting at the very end of the tie easier, place a piece of tear-away stabilizer or paper underneath the tie and hold the thread ends until you have sewn several stitches.
5. Embellish scarf with decorative stitching. Use a stabilizer underneath the fabric so that the stitches do not pucker. Other embellishment ideas: rick rack, hand embroidered design, applique crocheted flowers (pattern below).
