I'm redecorating a room with a bohemian feel and I want to cover pillows with old scarves from the thrift shops.  Any ideas how to make the scarves a little sturdier so I can sew them together and so they'll hold up to regular use?

Hey there, perhaos you can get strips of stiff material like denim or leather and line the edges with it then when you sew them together, just be sure you stick the scarf iin the middle ofthe stitching.  I'm not sure if that would work, but you might want to try it. In the end, it should just look like a border or something.

I would use fusible interfacing.  Any fabric store carries it.  You iron it on to the back of your scarfs.  I think the poly knit is probably a good weight and would still retain the softness of the scarf.  If you prefer more body, there are various weights of this stuff.
