Do you ever want to make a project you can whip up in just a few minutes? Maybe it is meant as an antidote to all the couture sewing you've been doing lately, or maybe you just need a last-minute gift for a friend. Here's a project that takes minutes to make. It's a scarf that you simply cut and run up on your Baby Lock serger. View the original project in Threads magazine.


  • 1 yard 44-inch-wide silk, chiffon, charmeuse
  • 3 spools of thread to match or contrast
  • Rotary cutter and gridded cutting mat
  • Antifray liquid, such as Fray Check
  • Iron



  1. Cut a 36-inch square. This is easiest to do if you have a gridded cutting mat and a rotary cutter or use a T-square or a carpenter's square ruler to mark the fabric.

  2. Set your serger to the rolled-hem setting. If your serger doesn't have a built-in rolled hem, set it up for three-thread serging with the stitch length at 1.5

  3. Starting at one corner, serge the length of your square and off the end. Repeat on all sides.

    1. I don't trim much off my edge, but if it makes you more comfortable, you can serge using 1/2-inch (10-mm) seam allowance.

  4. Trim the excess thread chains, and if you like, dab a drop of antifray liquid on the corners.

  5. Press the scarf. Then wrap it à la Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis or Grace Kelly and wear with élan for a glamorous look.
