the no sew jersey scarf

Sometimes it’s the simple DIY’s that are the best.

I’ve been looking for a nice big scarf wrap thing for ages – then I found this jersey fabric at my favourite fabric store, and tied it to my garment rack in my studio next to one of my favourite scarfs till i could decide what to do with it. Which is when i realised, it looked just like the scarf. AH HA!

The beauty of this is that jersey doesn’t fray, so it didn’t require any hemming or anything, and since it’s a very thin “tissue” (stole that term from Jcrew hehe) type jersey it’s not too bulky.

If you’d like to create your own you’ll simply need about 2 or 2.5 yards of a very lightweight jersey fabric. Wrap it around your neck, and that’s it :) Perfection!

    I keep forgetting that all it takes to make a scarf is a piece of fabric. I think I’m going to have to try a couple ‘infinity scarves’ soon.
