Sew a fabric scarf with this collection of over thirty free fabric scarf patterns, tutorials, and diy sewing projects gathered from all over the web! (Please scroll down the page for the free sewing patterns.)
On these pages, you'll find both fashion scarves to sew (including both long, straight scarves and several versions of the ever-popular "infinity scarf") and cold weather scarves designed to keep your neck warm in cooler weather.
And because a scarf usually consists of just one or two fabric pieces and a few simple, straight seams, it can be an ideal first project for a beginner to sew. It will stitch up fast, and quickly give the new seamstress the satisfaction of a completed project. Plus, it's an article of clothing that won't require any fitting.
Make sure to choose a fabric for your scarf that's going to feel comfortable against your neck and not feel scratchy, abrasive, or irritating. For a fashion scarf you may want to choose a lightweight fabric that drapes well, such as a jersey knit, rayon, or a silk-type fabric. For a cold weather scarf, you may want to choose a heavier fabric such as a flannel, fleece, or a medium-weight wool. And feel free to have fun with your scarf by adding embellishments such as fringe or pom poms.
And what's great about a fashion scarf is that it can be a quick and easy way to change the look of an outfit for very little money. And you might actually want to wear a solid color top or dress in order to showcase the scarf itself (and the print of the fabric). And the great thing about an infinity scarf specifically is its versatility. You can wear it long or twist or tie it up for a shorter look.
A scarf can also be a great way to use up scraps of fabric you may have leftover from other projects. You can sew the scraps together for a patchwork design. And don't forget that a scarf can make an excellent quick-to-make gift!
