Have some extra scraps of fabric sitting around that’s too good to toss out? Learn to sew a DIY scarf! Polkadot Chair helps you, starting with the first step of considering which supplies are needed. Then there’s step-by-step instructions and pictures on how to cut the fabric into a square, making sure that it’s the proper length. Finally, you’ll see how to sew and steam a seam around the edge of the fabric. Steaming, sewing, and then steaming again! 🙂
- For the necktie to work best, you need a fabric that’s lightweight and has a bit of drape to it.
- If your fabric is slinky or harder to work with you can sew a basting stitch 3/8th inch from the raw edge and use this as a guide to help you get an accurate and consistent hem.
- To wear it, fold it in half to create a triangle. Roll up the triangle beginning at the widest part. Tie around your neck using a double knot.
