Britex Fabrics’ Guest Blogger,  Jen from Grainline Studio presents a tutorial to make a super cute polka dot chiffon scarf with tassels! This scarf is the perfect thing to throw on with your sweaters this winter, it dresses things up a bit and also adds a new texture to a typically knit heavy season. The silk was a dream to work with, softer and silkier than any chiffon I’ve worked with before and with a most beautiful sheen. Also can we talk about the color and print? It’s not just ivory, it has a subtle blush hint to it that makes it super flattering on everyone who’s tried it on so far and I’m a huge fan of the scattered polka dot. It’s a perfect way to throw an updated polka dot into your wardrobe. This was actually my first time working with silk thread (other than needle turned appliqué) and it really added a subtle polish that probably only I will notice, but isn’t that the best kind really? I think so. Make this scarf with or without the tassels, I think they’re pretty fun but unfortunately so does my cat who tried to steal one right before we took these finished project photos. You can follow the instructions below to make your own!

Step 1:

  1. Silk Chiffon or other sheer fabric 45″ x 45″ (available in Britex Fabrics’ online store)
  2. 50 Weight Silk Thread (available in Britex Fabrics’ online store)
  3. Pearl Cotton
  4. Needle with eye large enough for the pearl cotton to pass through
<p>love it !! I see silk blouses etc that are not my size at the thrift stores all the time. I love love silk; I want to buy everything that is silk; this would be a great way to recycle the patterns I love!</p>
Or you could use a narrow hem presser foot - it's amazing and no need to trim a thing!
Very cute! It looks so easy to make tassels :)
