Step 1) Cut your material.

Cut one to three?pieces of ribbonpersonalized toys, each measuring 3″; to?4″;, and two rectangles of sweater knit?measuring 5″; by 27.”;

Step 2) Make the ribbon tags.

Fold the ribbon(s) in half and pin the?raw edges together very securely.?Ribbon shown in this photo is enough?for three scarves.

Sew ?”; from the raw edges,?making sure the ribbons don’t slip?out of alignment.

Step 3) Pin the layers.

Pin the two scarf layers together with?right sides facing each other, leaving?an area about 3″; long unpinned for?turning later. I chose to place mine in?the middle of one of the long sides.

Insert the ribbon tag, aligning all?the raw edges.

Step 4) Sew the scarf.

Sew all four edges of the scarf with a??”;-wide seam allowance, catching the tag?and leaving an opening for turning.?Instead of pivoting at the corners, sew?off the ends as shown in the photo.

Trim the seam allowances to ?,”;?but leave them intact around the?turning hole.

Turn the scarf through the hole and?press well. You can use a long knitting?needle to help you turn the corners.

Sew the hole shut by hand.

Voila! You have completed this?project so quickly you might want to?make another.

Having an eco friendly hardwood floor finish was very important to us, so working with Bona Flooring and having our new flooring finished with their water-based high traffic method was a no-brainer. Having new wood floors installed was the highlight of my year! See part 1 on Hardwood Flooring – Choosing a Color.?

Have been loving this chevron pattern for some time now and still haven't seen any nice fabric in the shops. While making the garden table (see on Home-Dzine.co.za) , I also spray painted a couple of old plastic chairs that were stuck in a corner of the garden (see on Home-Dzine.co.za) and also decided to add some colourful cushions. Since I wasn't able to buy chevron fabric, I made my own !
