Each scarf is 6 inches wide, so I can sew three together to make the body of the bag with an 18 inch width. I'll use another sample scarf for the ends. Haven't decided about the bottom yet.

I reckon a couple of miles ought to do. I’m thinking about braiding it to make it sturdier.
Next - Making the bag.
