Introducing the morphing scarf. It changes with your ever-shifting wardrobe or mood. Made with a variety of fabrics, you can turn the pages on this three-layer scarf to change the colors and match a variety of ensembles in your wardrobe. This scarf, from Quick Stuff to Sew, Vol. 1, is wonderful for traveling, it’s a perfect gift, and it’s a nice addition to anyone’s closet.

To get started, select three fabrics that play off each other. Sheer wool gauze, chiffon, batiste, and crinkled silk are all good fabric choices. Organic prints that include florals or paisley and stripes or plaids are also great for layering under solid sheers or each other. Explore the possibilities of see-through sheer patterns or gauzy solids to find the effects you love. Then all you need to do is choose your edge finish and sew your scarf.

    Sorry but the explanation is not clear. How to join the 3 finiched scarfs together ? What I understand from the red is that the scarf are joined by the narrower side.

    The illustration on page three shows several steps in succession, from top to bottom. Essentially, the three scarves are joined along one long edge. Stack the three scarves with all edges aligned. Sew them together along one edge, with a serged rolled hem, if that's how you finished the other edges. If you used a machine-sewn narrow hem, you can sew that long seam with a French seam, as explained in steps 1-5.
