Step 2: Cut and Fold

Picture of Cut and Fold
Cut out a rectangle from your piece of fabric.  The length should be  47″ (120 cm) and width 19” (50 cm).
Fold your fabric in half length wise, with the right sides facing each other inside. Line up the edges of the fabric and pin the shorter sides together.

Step 4: Cut the stripes

Fold the rectangle at the seam side and stretch it on the floor. Cut a 1″ wide stripe from the folded side of the scarf  (opposide to the one with the seam). Stop cutting  1,5″  before the seam. After that cut the whole rectangle into 1″ wide stripes.
