A scarf is often at the top of some Christmas lists.
You only need two stripes of fabric: one from the upper layer of a kimono and one from the lining would be ideal.
It is an opportunity for the discarded leftovers from bigger works to acquire a second life.
1- Cut two stripes of the same size.
2- Put the right side of each stripe upon one another.
3- Sew along the length of the wrong side, then on the opposite side.
OR all along except one side if the scarf is large enough to be reversed easily.
4- If you chose to stitch the three sides instead of two, cut the extra fabric on the corners.
5- Reverse the fabric so the right side can be visible.
7- Fold the end, the side that has not been sewn, inside the tube, about 1 cm.
8- Do likewise on the opposite side if you did not stitch it.
I have used two kinds of thread for the last step : a glittering thread and a basic polyester thread of the same hue as the fabric. Beyond the artistic touch, this alliance is more economical and strengthens the stitching.
Here is the final shape:
Well, the scarf is a bit limited… I did not have enough fabric….
If you decide to make a scarf without lining, the following technique is perferct for a light scarf that will not consume too much fabric.
