I Like You America Head Scarf

The fabric made me do it!  I mean, really, what else could you possibly do with “I Like  America” fabric?!

So, here’s what I did for a kid size head scarf:

You’ll need:
two 16×8 inch rectangles of fabric. . . contrasting colors would be nice.
1 yard of bias tape
thread (duh).


1. Cut two 16 x 8 inch rectangles of fabric (you can mess with the sizes here. . just make sure the long side = 2x the short side).

2. Cut out triangles. . . there’s lots of ways to do this, but I find folding the fabric in half and using my rotary cutting mat’s triangle guides the easiest.

3. With Right sides together, sew the short sides of the triangle together.

4. Turn right side out and press.

5. Sew bias tape across the raw edges.

6. Wear with pride!

    I believe the question is What could you NOT do with ‘I love you America’ fabric? Seriously, whoever designed that is a genius.
