velvet scarves

dimmie | Posted in General Discussion on


I know it’s a simple thing but I need a pattern or directions for velvet scarves that I may line with silk etc.  I can’t do anything without a pattern or directions.  Thanks to all.  Dimmie

    Have never made them with silk but we did do some that were just velvet on the back and then fringe on them.  I guess I don't know how long or what kind of scarves you are making.

    just measure your lentgh and cut two rectangles .You might need to join  your velvet in order to get the length and actually I have seen some lovely ones which are pieced togther out of different luxurious fabrics I would use a piece of muslin to check that the length is right . Fiddle so that you get enough length for arranging your scarf with the right amount of drape in your frant and back.. . I would make the fashion side up first if you are going to piece it and then cut your silk lining to match . With velvet and silk I would definitely use a walking foot as otherwise it will move all over the place . The with right sides together sew around the edges leaving one or two inches for turning and turn it and gntly ease out the corners and press GENTLY on th silk side.

    Hi dimmie, I made some velvet scarves lined with silk and all I can say is buy alot of pins and pin it every 1/2 " .I hand basted all around,then machine stitched, left 3" open to turn . It takes some time but made beautiful gifts. I'd follow all of the other suggestions , like making a muslin, to check size .Have fun.Susan P.S. don't use a stretchy velvet unless you self line it with the same.
