How to Make a Patterned DIY No Sew Neckerchief

For this project, I’m working with two different size neckerchiefs.

The larger 27” size wears like a looser fitting French foulard around the neck, and the smaller 16.5” size fits snuggly with a single knot.

There is a range of different sizes out there depending on your desired look and size needs!

Step 1   Run the neckerchiefs through a wash/dry cycle to soften them up a bit.

Step 2   Tape down the neckerchief’s four corners onto your protected work surface to keep it in place as you paint.

Step 3   Print off your pattern inspiration and slide it underneath your neckerchief. OR free hand paint your pattern as I’m doing here.

On the smaller neckerchief, I use the handkerchief’s woven line design as the guide for the border.

Step 4   Mix the acrylic paint with a fabric paint medium at a 1:1 ratio or according to the instructions and begin painting the neckerchief.

Step 5   Once you’ve completed your design, remove the tape and hang the neckerchief up to dry.

Don’t leave it to dry on the work surface as it may stick and make it difficult to remove.

Step 6   Once completely dry, iron the fabric with a medium heat setting for 3-5 minutes.
