No Sew Scarf

Scarf tutorial

The scarf bug bit me and this time I wanted one in a lime or light apple green. No problem at the fabric shop. This version is in chiffon which drapes and falls beautifully. As with yesterday’s instructions, you cut a length exactly as long as you require, then pull a few threads at each end to fray the edges a bit. No more than that and you have a new scarf
One can get quite carried away and have scarves in fabrics with designs but I prefer them in plain colours.

The shirt is from a vintage store. I snap these shirts up when I see them as they are wash and wear. Ideal for when I am travelling as they also dry easily and do not crease. Wish you could find shirts like this one today. One doesn’t find the same fabrics any more. They made clothes to last in those days. My vintage clothes keep their shape and wash better despite being so much older than my newer clothes. I find the cut and fit of vintage clothing is vastly superior to that of modern clothes.

The Greenie Galleries at the top of this page have 100s of photos of older and newer projects showing multiple ways to make your own clothing and accessories. There are also ideas to recycle or upcycle.

See you soon.
