My sister, Alice G Patterson, was so excited about our nautical themed photo shoot that she made some reversible scarves for the dogs. I think Alice did an amazing job on this DIY project for doglovers.
Alice made a template and photographed all the steps for this tutorial. Some basic sewing skills are required. These scarves are purely decorative and fun. Please do not let your dog wear a scarf if you are not in the same room with it, the scarf could get caught on something and cause a serious problem.
Prewashed fabric and thread
Recommended: Tape for taping the template together.
Print and cut out template.
Tape template together or pin template directly to fabric.
Cut. You will need 2 fabric pieces cut for each reversible scarf.
Pin fabric with the good sides facing each other.
Sew with a 3/8″ seam allowance all around, leaving one end open.
Turn right side out.
Hand stitch closed.
A reversible scarf is perfect for Lulu and Franny, but it proved to be too bulky for the small dogs, so Alice used just one piece of fabric to make a smaller scarf.
For a smaller scarf, shorten the length of the template (ours is 32 inches long) and only cut one piece of fabric.
Fold fabric in half, pin and stitch close except for one end.
Turn right side out, hand stitch close and you’re done! Alice used a smaller seam allowance for this scarf ~ 1/4″.
