Sew the two pieces together along a 28-inch side using an enclosed (French) seam.
- Put the two pieces of fabric together, wrong sides facing each other, and pin along a 28-inch side. Sew together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
- Trim your seam allowance close to the seam.
- Unfold your fabric so you have one long piece and press the seam allowance with an iron.
- Now fold your fabric along the 28-inch seam so that the two right sides are together. Press this new fold.
- Stitch again along the fold using a 3/8 inch seam allowance, enclosing the raw edge.
- Unfold your fabric and press the seam so it lies flat to one side.
Now that you have one long fabric panel, trim off ½ inch from the selvage edges on both sides.
Use a Blanket Stitch to finish off the edges:
- On the wrong side of the fabric (see above, left), in the corner starting just above the hem, bring the needle out through the fabric at the fold.
- Turn the fabric over so the right side is facing you (see above, middle). Starting 1/3 inch from your previous stitch, do the same blanket stitch, this time from the front of the fabric, making sure to loop the thread under the needle.
- With the right side of the fabric still facing up, continue doing this around all 4 sides of the scarf. It should look like the image on the right. Since the fabric is so lightweight, be sure not to pull your stitch too tight or you will pucker the fabric. You want your edges to still lay nice and flat when you're done.
Cut a piece of embroidery thread about 5 inches long. Set aside.
