A while back I made a reversible headscarf to go with my SCRAPPY TWIRL SKIRT pattern and today I want to share it with you!
Here’s what you want to do:
Cut 2 pieces of fabric (quilters cotton works best) in a triangle shape with the longest edge being 8″ and the 2 smaller edges being 7″ long for sizes up to 2t, sizes up to 6 would be 9x8x8 or to your liking) Place your 2 pieces with right sides together………..
Pn and sew the 2 shorter edges (I placed arrows)
Trim off pointy corner……………..
turn triangle inside out and trim off peeking out tips………….
Cut a 2×40″ strip of complementing fabric for the ties and make binding out of it by folding the long edges into the middle and press with iron:
Then fold strip once more………….
………this should now be your prepared binding:
Press triangle and place next to binding, matching both of the center:
Pin triangle to the right side of the binding’s print:
Sew along the dashed line which is slightly next to the crease:
This is how your sewn together pieces should look like:
Fold the binding over the triangle’s top edge and pin:
Fold in both binding’s ends to 1/4″
and refold binding so it looks like this:
Keep pinning entire binding and sew close to the open edge:
Backstitch beginning and end of both sides of binding (small edges) and now you should be done! Take a little girl and make her model for you:

That is the cutest head scarf. My girls would love that for their dress up area. I am a new follower from Homemaker in Heels. Vicky from Mess For Less

What a gorgeous little headscarf! I made one similar when my daughters were younger – they look so cute in them at that age!

That is not my thing, but I enjoy seeing what others do so well. That little girl is so precious and the best of the show.
