For the sixth day, I made two scarves. The pink one is for Liberty and the green one is for Winter.
I made these much like last year’s scarves, but I made a slight change. I sewed a 1/8″ seam all the way around the scarves first. The I used the seam lime to fold the fabric over before I stitched the edges. This made it much easier and faster to sew.
The total time for one scarf is about an hour.
Today I made two scarves.
$0. I was given the pink fabric a couple of years ago; it was a leftover scrap. I decided to make a small scarf from it as it wasn’t real long. The green fabric was part of a curtain valance that was given to me many years ago.
Yesterday I made a pair of flannel pajamas for my older son. I bought the flannel from JoAnns at a black Friday sale a couple of years ago. I’m so pleased with how they turned out! They will be a Christmas gift.
I made some gifts this week but not Christmas ones…these particular ones were baby gifts. I put down my knitting (a new skill I am trying very hard to master) and picked up my crochet hooks again (a skill I have had for a few years) and was shocked to see how QUICKLY I can crochet versus knitting. Needless to say, any yarn crafting I do for Christmas this year will absolutely be CROCHET! ;-)I made a pixie hat for a preemie and a pair of cowboy boot booties. (Two different recipients. There won’t be a cowboy pixie roaming the streets anytime soon!)
Beautiful! I like using that technique for “slippery” fabrics or simply an easier seam marker too.I just wanted to let you know how much you’ve inspired me to make the rest of our Christmas gifts. I’ve been enjoying myself very much!
They are very lovely! Recently, I have taken an interest in scarves. I need to keep a sharp eye out for some fabric to recycle into a scarf or two. Thank you for sharing.
I made a gift today, but it wasn’t for Christmas! Friends of ours have new baby girl twins. I made them a set of burpcloths and delivered them along with a meal tonight. Feels good.I’ve been sewing scarves recently, too. I have been making infinity scarves with regular woven fabric. I’m going to write a blog post on it soon – need to take some more photos. Easy and so customizable.
