Patterned DIY No-sew Neckerchief

The Neckerchief. It’s chic, often cheeky, and it makes even the most basic outfit look thoughtful and pulled together. Not to mention, it’s an undeniably fun word to say. What’s not to love?!

If you’re like me, Erin, and you’re looking for some chic new accessories for your new year wardrobe, pull out your stashed away craft paints and make a patterned DIY no-sew neckerchief  while you’re avoiding the snowy weather. They’re a super cute and customizable statement piece for any outfit!

Pattern inspiration – Pinterest is great for gathering pattern and color inspiration. If you need a place to start check out my and Ashley’s pattern and design Pinterest boards.

Iron

Clothespins + string

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

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

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

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.

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.

5. Once you’ve completed your design, remove the tape and hang neckerchief up to dry. Don’t leave to dry on the worksurface as it may stick and make it difficult to remove.

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