Video: How to Sew a Scarf with a Hidden Pocket
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.
I never thought of scarf with a pocket, it's so simple and so amazing!
Great idea!! Love it!
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.
Simple and very useful. This advice I saw on youtube a while, but it is worth remembering!
