Assemble Fabrics Lengths:

 

For all sizes of scarves except the doll, you'll need to sew two Fabric A pieces together to make the correct outside scarf length and two Fabric B pieces together to make the correct inside scarf length. To do this, follow these steps.

1. Places both matching fabric pieces with right sides (printed sides) together. If you're using Cuddle fabric, make sure the nap of the fibers is going in the same direction.
