Two-Layer Turtleneck Scarf Sewing Tutorial by Nancy Zieman Productions
Approximate Finished Size 9-1/2″ Wide x 8-1/2 Long.
The NZP Team is designing projects and patterns to be sewn with Nancy Zieman’s innovative sewing techniques. Within each of our blog sewing tutorials and patterns, we give you construction tips and specific sewing hints, along with tool tips to make sewing fun and enjoyable – even for beginners. You’ll find that in a matter of minutes, you can sew fashion accessories – like our favorite Turtleneck Scarf!
Choose Your Turtleneck Scarf Size
Using a tape measure, measure forehead circumference – just above eyebrows: If forehead circumference measures 20-1/2″- 21-1/2″ make a size Small/Medium Turtleneck Scarf. If forehead circumference measures 21-1/2″-22-1/2″ make a size Medium/Large Turtleneck Scarf. We’re making a size Small/Medium Turtleneck Scarf in this sewing tutorial.
Prepare & Cut Fabric
Prepare 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 Quilters Starch Savvy. Press and starch, press and starch.
- Cut One Fabric Rectangle 18″ long by 21″ wide for size Small/Medium. Be sure to cut the fabric rectangle with the greatest fabric stretch across the 21″ width. (For Size XS/Small cut one fabric rectangle 18″ long by 20″ wide. For size Medium/Large, cut one fabric rectangle 18″ long by 23″ wide: for a 10-1/2″ wide x 8-1/2 long finished scarf).
- NOTE: Deanna, from Team NZP, stitched a Turtleneck Scarf for her husband – with One Fabric Rectangle measuring 22-1/2″ long by 23-1/2″ wide – cut from 5/8 yd Stretch Jersey Knit Fabric. Or, you may be the designer and choose your own custom fabric rectangle size!
Stitch Turtleneck Scarf
- Fold fabric rectangle, right sides together, meeting 21″ long edges. Pin.
Our Turtleneck Scarf is the perfect project to stitch with a serger overlock machine! Place pins parallel to cut edges – when stitching with a serger.
- Fold fabric tube, right sides together, stacking and aligning stitched seam and cut edges. Pin.
- Measure and mark a 2-1/2″-3″ opening along cut edges, staying an inch or more away from seam.
- Stitch seam with serger – leaving an opening at markings.
When stitching with a flatbed serger, stitch seam with presser foot on the inside of the circular seam.
- Turn Scarf right side out through seam opening.
Before moving on to the finishing step, go ahead and try on your Turtleneck 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.
- Optional: Fuse a 3″ strip of Clover’s 1/4″ Fusible Web Tape to one inner seam allowance, at seam opening and fuse seam closed. Or, stitch opening closed with a sewing machine straight stitch, zigzag stitch, or hand stitching.
- Change thread colors, and serge another turtleneck scarf!
Changing serger thread colors on our Bernette b64 AIRLOCK Serger is super-easy with air-threading technology!
- Cut threads above upper thread guides.
- Cut threads at needles, raise presser foot, and pull to remove all four cut threads.
- Change serger cone thread spools.
- On the Bernette b64 AIRLOCK Serger, slide the Air Threader Connector to ON. Insert thread into Air Threader Nozzles and press the round Air Threader Button (upper right photo).
- Remove Slide-on Flatbed Table and Freearm Cover to reveal the freearm!
When stitching with a serger with a free arm, stitch turtleneck seam with the presser foot on the outside of the circular seam!
