Pull-Through Scarf and Chain Link NecklacePull-Through Scarf and Chain Link Necklace
You're less than one hour away from these pretty and polished accessories – use fabric from your stash for a simple pull-through scarf accented with a decorative slide buckle, or fashion a chic necklace from chain link trim and grosgrain ribbon.


Materials Needed:


  1. Straighten out cut edge if necessary. Measure and mark a line 7" from the cut edge, running along the width of the fabric. Cut along this line and trim off selvages.
  2. With RIGHT sides of fabric facing each other, fold fabric in half widthwise, with cut long edges even and forming a long tube. Pin along long edges.
  3. Stitch long edge in a 1/2" seam. Trim corners.
  4. Pin one short end closed and stitch in a 1/2" seam. Trim off remaining corner.
  5. Turn the tube RIGHT side out through remaining opening in scarf, poking corners out gently as far as they will go.
  6. Fold the ends of the opening to the INSIDE 1/2" and pin in place. Slip stitch opening closed with hand sewing needle and matching thread.
  7. Press scarf flat. To wear, pull both ends of scarf through slide buckle as shown in photo.


Materials Needed:


  1. Cut ribbon in half, so you have two pieces of equal length.
  2. Fold back one end of one piece of ribbon 1/2". Thread this end through an end link of the chain trim and fold again 1". Pin in place.
  3. Using a zipper foot on your machine, machine stitch close to the folded edge of the ribbon to secure. TIP: To keep the ribbon loops from sliding out through the chain link, add a drop of glue to the inside of the ribbon loop to secure.
  4. Repeat steps 2 and three with other ribbon piece, threading the end through the other end link of the chain trim.
  5. Trim ends of ribbon diagonally to prevent the ribbon from fraying. You can also seal the ribbon edges using a thin layer of fabric glue.
  6. To wear, tie the ribbon at the back of your neck in a loose knot or bow. The length of ribbon gives you the flexibility to wear your necklace as long or short as you like.
