This scarf has got to be the quickest easiest scarf I’ve ever made. Little Miss asked for some light scarves now that it is starting to get warmer here so I picked up some bright light floaty fabric on special a couple of weeks back. After a busy morning I was keen to sit at the sewing machine for a few minutes and get creative.
The result? A scarf for Little Miss and a scarf tutorial for you!
What You Need:
- 30cm of soft floaty fabric (like chiffon)
- sewing machine and usual sewing supplies
What To Do:
- Fold your fabric in half lengthways with the right sides together.
- Pin in place.
- Sew across one end and along the long side.
- Optional: Zigzag the edge or trim with pinking shears to tidy the edge and stop fraying.
- Turn through.
- Press gently with a warm iron, tucking in the open seam.
- Sew across the open edge to close it. You could hand stitch this end if you don’t want the stitching to show.
- Optional: Top stitch the other end to match.
- For a longer scarf, join a second 30cm piece to the first before you fold and stitch the scarf.
- For a narrower scarf, use less than 30cm.
- You may need to change to a smaller needle than usual for the lightweight fabric. I used a size 80.
