Easy Peasy Voile Summer Scarves

My love of voile continues.  Below is a simple scarf I made for a friend's birthday.  With a yard of each of 2 different coordinating voiles, you too can also have this simple, soft, lightweight, heavenly scarf:
Voile Summer Scarf

Directions: 
*All of the voile I used is from Anna Maria Horner and is 54" wide
  • Cut 2 - 16 or 17 inch strips of fabric from each yard (you may even be able to cut it up to 18" wide depending on how generous your fabric store was while cutting).  You want to cut across the width of the fabric, which will leave you with 2  ~16"x52" strips of fabric.  
  • Trim the selvage edges and sew the strips together along the SHORT edge using a 1/2" seam allowance (you'll have 2 very long strips of fabric - 1 in each pattern)
  • Decide how long you want your scarf and cut to length.  I typically cut mine down to 88-90" long
  • With right sides together, pin and sew the two strips together along the two LONG edges.  I used a 1/2" seam allowance again
  • Turn the fabric tube right side out and press.  
  • Now turn the unfinished short ends in about 1/2" and top-stitch them closed.  You can even add a fun trim like the pom-pom trim pictured below (this scarf I made for myself).
  • All done!

Nice one. I can use this as a head band which not too many people can pull off a hippie-style headband.
