I’ve just done a tutorial on hand sewing a headscarf to use for those vintage hairstyles.
I’ve actually used the one featured in the tutorial already to keep my curlers in place when setting my hair.
I’m a recent convert to the world of scarves. Not only (to quote jane austen) do they save a fortune in hair dressing but when not used as a hair accessory keep your neck warm. And if made big enough make a great impromptu picnic blanket.
I’m planning on getting some vintage inspired printed fabric to make some more. I do prefer silk over cotton for headscarfs but cotton over silk for neck scarfs. I like with making my own I can have them match outfits if I buy a little extra fabric for each project. Planning on making a neckerchief as well.
Its definitely a great way to use up scraps as well or make gifts.
