Video: How to Sew a Scarf with a Hidden Pocket

May 17, 2016

Evamarie Gomez and Gary Junken

While on the road at the 2015 American Sewing Expo (ASE), we caught up with Threads author and co-owner of Dragonfly Dyeworks Nick Coman. In this how-to video, Nick shows how to sew a scarf with a secret pocket. This hidden compartment is added to the scarf’s seam so that it is concealed, making it perfect for carrying lightweight items such as a driver’s license, lip balm, or cash.

As a bonus, Nick shares a technique for creating a secure knot for hand sewing with silk thread.

Will you try this project? Have you sewn garments or other items with cleverly placed and inconspicuous pockets? Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section.

    Simple and very useful. This advice I saw on youtube a while, but it is worth remembering!

    Good idea, but I wonder what the finished product looks like tied around the neck with one end looking somewhat clunky because of the contents.
    I think I'll adapt this for a sash that I'd tie round my waist or hips. I work at a lot of fundraisers where I greet guests, lead them to their table, make introductions, etc. A purse is impractical to carry, but I need to keep my phone and my glasses (!) close by, so this idea might work.
    Thank you.
