How to Make a Reversible Keyhole Scarf
Winter is definitely here even in California. So I decided to create this reversible keyhole scarf out of some leftover fleece that I had from another project. I love fleece for this project but faux fur would be a perfect fabric to use if you live in a colder climate than I do. This keyhole scarf is a super simple sewing project for any beginner sewist. It is truly just two pieces of fabric and a few seams to put this scarf together. This is a complete sewing tutorial that will walk you through the steps it will take to complete this terrific scarf. If you would like another reversible scarf project check out my Pom Pom scarf or my hat and scarf combo.
As I said, I used fleece that I had left over from another project that I had purchased from JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores. You could head to Hobby Lobby, Fabric.com, or Onlinefabricstore.net to get exactly what you need for your keyhole scarf. You can get fleece or faux fur whichever suits you.

What you will Need: How to Make a Keyhole Scarf
- 1/2 yd Outer fabric
- 1/2 yd Lining Fabric
- Standard Sewing Supplies
Step 1: Cut your Fabrics
Cut one outer and one lining piece of fabric that measures 38 1/2″ x 7 1/8″
Step 2: Mark for the Keyhole
On the wrong side of both the outer and lining fabric find the longwise center. Draw a line from the half way widthwise point for reference. Measure up from the bottom 5 1/8″ and draw a line. From there, measure up another 3 1/2″ and make a second mark. Place the outer and lining pieces right sides together. Using the two lines that you drew draw a 1/2″ box connecting the two lines.
Step 3: Create the Keyhole
Stitch around the box. Clip straight down the center of the box and diagonally toward the end of the box opening up the hole for the keyhole. Turn right sides out through the keyhole opening.
Step 4: Stitch the Outer Scarf to the Lining
Place one of the outer scarf pieces right sides together with the outer lining piece and stitch up the side. You will notice that the other sides of the outer and lining will be rolled up inside. Stitch using a 3/8″ seam allowance. Turn right sides out.
Step 5: Stitch the other Outer Side to the Lining
Place the other outer piece to the other lining piece right sides together and stitch along the bottom and half way down the side using a 3/8″ seam allowance. Skip a a few inches for turning and continue to stitch the rest of the side and the bottom.
Step 6: Turn Right Sides Out.
Turn the entire scarf right sides out through the opening. Stitch the opening closed using ladder stitch and you have finished your reversible keyhole scarf.
If making longer where do I put keyhole? Sorry very very beginner to sew.
No problem. I would think that you would want to make the keyhole in the same place. To do that I would determine how much longer I wanted the scarf to be and add that to the first measurement for the keyhole and keep the second measurement the same. That way it is snug against the neck but longer on the bottom. Does that make sense?
