Use the following steps to make a twist scarf.

  1. Cut and pin the scarf fabric
  2. Cut out two narrow pointed strips of fabric measuring about 36 inches long by 4 inches wide. Place the two strips of fabric with right sides facing one another and pin together around the outside edges.

  3. Sew the two pieces together
  4. Sew the two pieces together along the outside edge with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Leave an opening between the two sides of fabric that is about 4 inches wide on each side of the fabric.

  5. Sew the wire casing
  6. Turn the sewn fabric inside out, so that the raw edges are hidden inside the scarf. Sew a narrow tunnel along the outer edges of the strip starting at each of the open sides. The tunnel should be about 1/4 of an inch wide.

  7. Insert the wire
  8. Cut two piece of wire that are as long as the scarf. Wrap the ends with a small amount of masking tape to keep them from poking through the fabric. Slide each wire into the wire casing tunnel through the openings in the fabric sides.

  9. Sew up the open sides of the scarf
  10. Fold the raw edges of the two open sides under and pin the open sides together. Sew the two openings closed with a narrow top stitch. This may need to be done by hand.
