But I have kind of liked the scarves I’ve been wearing all Winter.
So I needed some light weight Spring scarves. I looked around the shops but nothing took my fancy so instead I bought a couple of lengths of fabric from Spotlight and spent half an hour sewing.
What You Need:
- About half a metre of light weight fabric – chiffon or silk works well
- Sewing machine, thread, pins and scissors
Fold your fabric in half along the length of it with right sides together and pin.
Stitch across one end, down the long side and across the other short end, leaving about 5cm to turn through.
Optional: Stitch a second line of stitching using zig-zag to help stop fraying. I also trimmed the seam with pinking shears.
Turn through. Carefully pin the opening flat with the raw edges tucked in.
Stitch across the short ends about an eight of an inch from the edge to close the opening and give a neat finish.
I made a second one in a navy print, but I think I like the pale blue better.
Do you wear scarves? Do have a favourite way to tie them?
