The pattern for the scarf:
Look at this sketch of the pattern. The sizes include seam allowances (for the long sides I took 1,5 cm, for the double folded seam):If you make several at once, you can cut them without fabric loss. You will have to sew a seam in the neck.
Fold the fabric and measure and measure 18,5 cm on the fold.
Iron 2 x 2 cm at the short side.
Draw the shape and cut the scarf.
Sew the scarf:
Pin a strip of the tape on the inside of the scarf. Measure a 35 cm from the neckfold for the buttonhole and a 36 cm for the button.
With the zigzag hemmer foot 6 mm #nr 66, it is easy to sew the seam neat and easy.
Fold the ironed short bottom seams and sew.
Position the buttonhole on the right side of the scarf at 2 cm from the corner. Use Buttonhole foot with slide #3A
The buttonhole in the middle is to be made on the stabilizer tape.
Open the button hole with the buttonhole chisel.
Sew the button at the bottom at 5 cm from the side. It gives a functional overlap.
