Patchwork Scarves – Tutorial +Links

patchwork scarf diy tutorial

You will need smaller pieces of fabric, preferably of the same type of fabric and thickness. I used two types of flannel and a thicker cotton fabric and it worked just fine. The pieces need to be the same width.

Overlap pieces and zig-zag stitch back and front, this way both sides of the scarf will look the same.

Keep adding your pieces like this until your scarf has reached your preferred length.

Fold edges and sew, make sure you fold twice, you don’t want your scarf to fray.
