The Craft Cotton Company’s Ombré Trends Blue Fat Quarter by Heather Jacks
First, choose your fabrics:
In your fat quarter set you will receive 6 fat quarter pieces. Out of the 6 fat quarter pieces, pick out three fat quarters that you want to use.
Next, joining the fabric pieces:
Take the first two of these fat quarter pieces and placing right sides together sew together along the shortest edge.
Repeat this for the other fabric piece so all three pieces are joined together forming one long piece of fabric.
Now sew the strip:
Placing the right sides together, fold this long piece in half sideways and sew along the bottom, down the long edge and along the top edges.
Make sure that you leave a 6 cm gap unsewn for turning through.
Turn the scarf the right way around and use a slip stitch to close the seam.
Finally, sew to complete scarf:
Take the two ends and slip stitch down the seams to sew them together to complete the scarf.
