A Few New Scarves and the Let's Get Acquainted Link Up

I recently realized that I have a few occasions coming up in the next few months which are going to require me to wear something other than yoga pants.  So I figured - why not sew some scarves?!?


Without giving it much thought, I grabbed the rest of the AMH flannel and voile from when I made some Figure 8 scarves for holiday presents (blogged here.)  However, shortly after finishing this scarf, it occurred to me that flannel is probably not what I'll want for the spring so I went back to my small stash of voile and with the help of my 7 year old chose two prints to make a scarf.


I only had 1/2 yard cuts of each of these prints so I cut them in half lengthwise and sewed them together  on the short side so that I had a long, skinny piece of each.  I cut off about 10 inches from each of the fabrics and then just sewed the two fabrics right sides together leaving a small opening which I hand-stitched closed.  I like it and definitely will be wearing it but I think for my next one, I'll make it a bit longer and wider.  Which is funny because it is basically the same dimensions that I used and really like for the Figure 8 scarf but for the regular scarf, I felt it was too skinny.  Next time I order voile, I'll have to remember to get a full yard instead of a half.


And speaking of scarves, I'll be posting about my knitting adventures later this week.

  5. How nice to have design "helpers!". Your scarves look great. I bought some AMH velveteen and voile with the plan of making the infinity scarf but the directions are quite daunting to me. It should be simple enough, right?
