Twist scarf DIY

Hello crafters !

Do you remember all the stupid stuff your parents had you wear in your hair when you were young and helpless ? These things (chouchou, wired fabric things, headbands, etc.) seem to be back in our closet. Below are some proof extracted from American Apparel website (‘hope you enjoy the pictures).

Accessories (bracelets, necklaces, scarves, etc.) are always great to DIY as they present the great advantage of a very high result/effort ratio, so I tried my version of the “twist scarf” as they call it on AmAp website.

These only take 5 minutes to be done. You will need fabric left overs, one needle, thread and about 20cm of wire. This last piece of material may be the trickiest one to find, I personally stole gardening wire from my father’s shed, and I must say it is perfect for the use!

Once you’ve got everything you need, you can cut out a 20 cm wide square of fabric, fold it once so that you can see the “wrong” side of the fabric, then sew it all around leaving only 5 cm not sewn to be able to reverse it and finally insert the piece of wire before finishing sewing the 5 cm left open by hand.

By looking at the pictures you must already have an idea of how this is done, but should you have any other question do not hesitate to comment, I hope I’ll be able to help you out !
