Linen & Lace Infinity Scarf Tutorial

I got a request for a tutorial for the linen & lace infinity scarf I posted yesterday, so I figured I'd share a quick tutorial.

What you'll need:

16.75" x 18" lace
56.25" x 18" linen
sewing machine

With WRONG sides together, stitch the lace to the linen strip on both of the short sides using a 3/8"(match the 18" sides of the linen to the lace), so that you create a circle of fabric.  Trim the seam allowance to 1/4". Press the seams toward the linen.

This is what it should look like.

Now turn the scarf RS out and press so that the seam allowance is sandwiched in between the linen and lace.  

Now stitch another 3/8" seam.  This will enclose the raw edges.

Now once again press the seam toward the linen and edge stitch it down (along the edge of the lace).

This is what it will look like on the opposite side.

Now edge stitch along the edge of the linen.  And this is what it should look like. And now you know how to do a french seam!!!  So this tutorial is sort of like a two for one deal!  lol

BTW:  Please excuse all my little hairs from the raw edge sticking out...I had forgot to trim the first seam down to 1/4".

Now finish the long raw edges of the scarf.  I used my narrow hem foot, but it won't go over the french seam because it's too much fabric, so I had to do that spot by hand, but if you don't have a narrow hem foot you could do it by hand.  Just turn the raw edge up 1/4"; press; turn in another 1/4" the stitch.  You could even do a rolled hem or faux rolled hem.

And that's it! your done!

Thanks for the tutorial....I love it! I have some great vintage lace and linen from an estate sale and can hardly wait to try it! I have a few pieces of satin I want to try it with too! AND (like your Mom) I need a tutorial on how to get it twisted right when I get it on so that I am a fashionista too!
