DIRECTIONS: 1/4" seam allowance, unless otherwise noted. Jellies are folded and sewn between strips to create a flange. The flange is stitched down in opposite directions to create a contrasting texture. WOF = Width of fabric WS = Wrong side(s) RS = Right side(s)

1. Cutting: Fabric A: Three 12 1/2"x WOF (42"); twelve 2 1/2"x21" rectangles< Jellies: Choose 5 jellies. Sample was made with two Green Tonal, two Pod Floral & one Green Leaves. Cut in half to make ten 2 1/2"x21" pieces, OR, from the 5-piece Bundle #2, (Pod Floral and Green Tonal): Cut four 2 1/2"xWOF (21") from Pod Floral; Cut six 2 1/2"xWOF (21") from Green Tonal.

2. Scarf Backing: Sew two 12 1/2"xWOF Cherry Blossom pieces together, to make a 12 1/2"x82" backing.

3. Flange and Strip sections: Fold 2 1/2"x21" strips, WS together lengthwise, matching the long raw edges; press. Place folded Green Tonal jelly between two of the 2 1/2"x21" Cherry Blossom rectangles & match the raw edges. Pin through all 4 layers to hold together. Sew with a 1/4" seam allowance (Diagram 1). Open & press to show flange.
4. Add the next folded Pod Floral strip in the same way, matching raw edges, pinning the layers together & stitching. Open & press the Cherry Blossom to the side. Repeat to make 5 flanges, end with a Cherry Blossom strip. Flange & strip sewn unit measures 12 1/2"x21" (Diagram 2). Make 2nd flange & strip unit.

5. Sew the Flange and Strip unit onto the ends of the remaining 12 1/2"x42" Cherry Blossom rectangle.
6. Using a pencil and ruler, mark a line lightly across the strips and flanges at 3 1/4" (Diagram 3). Measure 3 1/4" & mark the next 4 stitching lines. The last section will be longer for a smooth finish on the end of the scarf
7. Pin the flanges down, toward you, on the 1st marked line. Using matching thread, sew on the pencil marked line.

8. Along the next pencil marked line, pin the flanges up, (Diagram 4) away from you and sew on the marked line. On the next marked line, fold and pin the flanges down toward you. Sew in place. Continue alternating the direction of the flanges for the next marked lines. The last row can be basted in place along the edge in the opposite direction. Repeat for the other end of scarf.

9. Finishing the scarf: RS together, pin scarf backing & textured front together. Sew around, leaving an opening in the middle side to turn. Turn & press gently around edges, corners and on texture flanges. Slip stitch the opening closed.
