I wanted the Anthropologie Lucia Loop, but it's $78. Seven. Eight. Too much for a scarf, n'est-ce pas?
It's beautiful, but it's not worth $78.
Step 1: Cut two 12"x 60" pieces of silky coordinating fabric (longer for a longer loop, shorter for a shorter loop)
Step 2: Stitch the long sides of the fabric together wrong side out.
Step 3: Flip right side out - you should have a silky tube.
Step 4: Fold the tube so that the short ends are together...you should have FOUR layers of fabric...two of one fabric (on the outside) and two of the other (on the inside):
Step 5: Make sure the existing seams are even and start sewing the TWO INSIDE layers together. Take care to keep the outside layers pushed out of the way so that you don't accidentally stitch over them.
(Notice my thumb and forefinger keeping the bottom layer out of the way of the presser foot). You will continue around the loop until you get to the two outside layers...keep sewing until you can't sew another stitch without making a mess...you'll know when that moment is...
Step 6: Eventually, there won't be any more space to sew, but you'll still have a hole. No prob. Flip your scarf so that the "invisible seams" you just sewed on the short sides are tucked in. You'll have a little hole left like this:
Step 7: Get out a needle and thread, and sew the remaining couple of inches shut.
Once you're done, you'll have your own knockoff Lucia Loop Scarf!
This was an $8 project and it took about 15 minutes to make. I'm DEFINITELY making more...with different patterns. Can't wait!
