Learn how to make a silk scarf with lightweight fabric. This beginner sewing project is a great to practice sewing silk and sewing hems.
I used some of my silk scraps to make a small silk scarf. It’s about the size of a bandana, but it can be used as a neck scarf, a hair scarf, or tie on a bag.
There’s lots of ways to use it! Let’s make a silk scarf that is a simple gift, but the silk makes it special.

Cut a 26 inch by 26 inch square from the silk fabric. This will create a bandana shape and size.
Sew a rolled hem (without a rolled hem foot) on two sides of the scarf. Press the hems in place.
You can also try doing a serged rolled hem with your serger if you want to figure out the right settings. This will created a thin thread wrapped hem.
