How to Make a Scarf

Learn how to make a scarf with a simple rectangle design. This  shape works for lightweight cooler fabric or warmer fabric that has some  drape.

I love chiffon fabric in a beautiful, colorful print or a soft plaid  flannel with a beautiful drape.like this border print I found.

A border print will work really well for this type of scarf because it  will give a ready-to-wear look. All of these colors are my favorite  colors and match everything in my wardrobe.

MATERIALS

– lightweight chiffon or challis fabric – sewing tools – sewing machine

INSTRUCTIONS

Start by ripping one edge of the fabric from selvedge to selvedge to get a straight line. Then rip the other edge to get a straight line.

INSTRUCTIONS

You want your rectangle to be the full width of the fabric (hopefully about 50 inches wide or wider) by 30 to 36 inches. 

INSTRUCTIONS

If the selvedge has a nice tiny fringe or some other nice edge leave these as the short edges. Sew a small double fold hem or rolled hem on the long edges.
