Team Spirit Bag Scarf

I confess I’m not a football fan, but I live among them. They’re everywhere, even in my own family! (*wink*) Show your team pride and dress up your bag (or your neck) with a simple scarf made from easy-to-sew cotton. I picked up the fabric at my local Hancock Fabrics store where you’ll find a great selection of team fabrics. JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts also has some team fabric. If you can’t find your team’s fabric locally or don’t have time to order it, try solid colors. For example, Bengals could have one side orange and the other black. In my opinion, the team fabrics are not the best quality so, before sewing, be sure to wash and dry to soften it up some. Let’s go!

Materials needed:

  • 1/3 yd. cotton team fabric (or 1/6 yd. of each of two solid colors)
  • Basic sewing supplies: ruler, pencil, sewing machine with matching thread, scissors, iron

After washing and drying fabric, press. Trim off selvage edges.

Fold fabric in half lengthwise, right sides together.( If you’re sewing with two solid fabrics, just lay one on top of the other.) Trim unfinished long edge(s) evenly.

If desired, give each short end a slant by drawing a line with any pencil ( it won’t show) to give your scarf a sassy point.

Cut off excess fabric at the corner of your drawn line.

Sew 1/4″ around all edges, leaving an opening of about 3″ anywhere you like. I left my opening on one of the ends.

After sewing, pull the scarf through the opening bringing the whole thing out. With a pointy object, push out all the corners. Press. Topstitch, if desired.
