Inseam pockets add sophistication and comfort to any garment.
They also give scarves a professional touch since they are nearly invisible when closed.

Materials you'll need:
  • Fabric
Scarf: 2 pieces of 64"Lx8.5"W or 1 piece 128"L x 17"W fabric of choice
Pockets: 1/2 yard of fabric in contrasting color
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pins
  • Tailor chalk
  • pocket pattern or you can draw your own by sketching a teardrop shape at 8" x 11"

This scarf was a present for my very petite aunt who is 5'1" tall.
If you're making this for someone taller than 5'2", I suggest adding around 6" in length to your fabric pieces.
(A 70" long scarf will allow for much more comfortable pocket placement.)
