Hand Scarf/ Neck Cooler Patterns

How To Make A Sand Scarf

GHC currently needs 100+ sand scarves and 100+ neck coolers to send to our Hometown Heroes we support monthly. Here is the directions for making sand scarves. We have provided a link at the end of this post for a pattern to make neck coolers. If making neck coolers, please make them light tan or light brown in color. Our Heroes THANK YOU!

Supplies needed:

2 to 4 yards of 60-inch 100% cotton fabric - sand, brown or beige in color. The fabric needs to be 100% cotton knit t-shirt fabric. Please do not use latex or synthetic blends as they may cause burns.

Sewing machine, cloth tape, scissors, pins or fabric marker.

Sewing Instructions:

1. Lay out your fabric on your work surface. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise so the selvaged edges are together.

2. Measure 14 inches in length. Mark with a fabric marker or use straight pins to mark the length. Cut the fabric across at that mark. You will now have a 60 inch to 14 inch piece of fabric.

3. Stitch along all four edges of the fabric using a zig zag stitch or serger. There is no need to make a hem. The zig zag stitch keeps the material from unraveling.
