Prepare & Cut Fabric

JT445_01 Quilter’s Starch Savvy available at shopnzp.com

Note From Team Nancy Zieman ProductionsPrepare your fabrics! Pre-treat fabric by steaming and pressing, then, stabilize fabrics for the sewing process by pressing and starching fabrics with June Tailor’s Starch Savvy. Press and starch, press and starch.

  • Cut Two Fabric Rectangles 18″ long by 11″ wide for size Small/Medium. Be sure to cut the fabric rectangle with the greatest fabric stretch across the 11″ width. (For a Size Medium/Large, cut one fabric rectangles 18″ long by 12″ wide: for a 10-1/2″ wide x 8-1/2 long finished scarf).
  • NOTE: Deanna, from Team NZP, stitched a Colorblocked Turtleneck Scarf for her husband – with Two Fabric Rectangle measuring 22-1/2″ long by 13-1/2″ wide – cut from 5/8 yd Stretch Jersey Knit Fabric. Be a designer and choose your own custom fabric rectangle sizes!

Stitch Turtleneck Scarf

  • Place fabric rectangles, right sides together, meeting 18″ long edges. Pin.

  • Stitch seam with a serger, or stitch with a sewing machine set for a wobble stitch.

Note From Team Nancy Zieman ProductionsSet sewing machine for a “wobble-stitch”: Choose a slight zigzag (2.0-2.5 length and .5 width). On the outside, this stitch will give the appearance of a straight stitch, while providing a slight amount of stretch to the seam! Or, choose a 4-thread overlock serger stitch. Now’s the perfect time to use that serger!

  • Stitch or serge seam with 1/4″ seam allowance, or use the edge of your presser foot as a guide. Be sure to backstitch at seam beginning and ending. For extra durability during wear–stitch this seam again, stitching over original stitching line. No need to double stitch this seam if you’re stitching with a serger!

  • Fold stitched fabric rectangle, right sides together, meeting 21″ long edges. Pin.

Note From Team Nancy Zieman ProductionsPlacing the fusible web tape, within the seam marks the seam opening and later finishes the final seam! 

  • Stitch seam with a serger, or stitch with a sewing machine set for a wobble stitch – creating a fabric tube. Press seam flat, then press open or press to one side.

  • Stitch or serge seam leaving a 3″-4″ opening at the fusible web tape.
  • Turn Scarf right side out through seam opening.

Note From Team Nancy Zieman ProductionsBefore moving on to the finishing step, go ahead and try on your scarf-in-process. Slip scarf over head and check for your desired fit. If scarf is too loose, turn inside out and restitch seam (above) taking a deeper seam allowance.
