Kate Moss springs to mind when I think of skinny scarves. She does that rock chic vibe so well. But blokes like Keith Richards also work a good skinny scarf. What I like about them is they use up left-over fabric and they double up as a belt or a head scarf. Eco fashion at it’s best. I’ve made them before in – this post.┬áHere’s how DIY your own skinny scarf.

You need: –

  • fabric
  • matching colour thread
  • sewing machine
  • sewing scissors
  • needle

This works best with soft fabrics. However I happened to have this piece of cotton lurking in my stash and it was fine for a scarf. You need to cut a long thin strip of fabric. How long and how wide? You decide. My scarf was cut 2.2 metres long and 8 centimetres wide and this measurement includes a 1.5 centimetre seam allowance. I had to sew two pieces together as you can see in the picture below to get the length.

Sew along the one side and all along the length. Then snip the corners.

Turn inside out. This is when you will be grateful if you made your skinny scarf wider.

And finish up by hand sewing the other end with invisible stitches.
