On a recent trip to London I fell in love with this fabric from Liberty. I bought a metre of it without knowing what I was going to do with it. I’ve recently been into wearing scarves as belts – it adds colour to any outfit and I love the effect. So I thought I’d take out my sewing machine and try to make my own! I’m so happy with the result.
The photos are quite self-explanatory, it’s only a simple project but here is a list of everything I done:
Mark on the wrong side of the fabric the size of the scarf you want to make. (Bear in mind that we’ll fold the fabric in half and need a 1cm seam allowance on each side for sewing).
Pin the fabric right sides together, leaving one short edge free – we’ll need to turn the scarf the right way round later on.
Sew two out of the three open edges.
Turn the fabric the right way round, using scissors to push out the corners.
Fold the open side in towards itself and pin, so you can’t see the raw edge of the fabric.
Pin the rest of the edges to top stitch (optional on the long edges – I only top stitched the short edges on my choker and it worked perfectly)
That’s it! You now have a scarf/choker.
I even made a mini one without the top stitching to wear as a fabric choker!
I hope you enjoyed this post, please let me know if you try this out! Thank you for reading :).
