El buen tiempo que está haciendo por aquí me ha animado a hacerle un pañuelo para la cabeza a Ana. Es muy fácil, ya veréis.
The good weather has encouraged me to make a headscarf for Ana. You’ll see it’s very easy.
We need some fabric and a bias strip.
1- The measures depend on the head that will wear the headscarf, I’ve measured the diameter of the head of my daughter. You can calculate your meaures in proportion to mine. To draw the triangle I have drawn first line A and next line B perpendicularly from the central point of line A. Then I have joined the ends of both straight lines to draw lines C and D.
2- To check that the size was appropiate, I’ve drawn first the pattern on paper. And then I have drawn two triangles on the fabric.
3- Next sew both triangles matching the good side of the fabrics and leaving an unstitiched hole to turn the inside out.
4- Make a few cuts like this, so the corners fit correctly:
5- Turn the inside out and and iron well the edge.
6- Finally cut a bias strip as long of long side of the triangle (A) plus approximately 11.7’’ And place it leaving about 5.9’’ extra on every end. Simply fold over the fabric, iron well and sew the whole bias.
