Crafty Christmas Roses Scarf

Well here we go, Christmas is less than 100 days away and if, like me, you have a lot of people to make presents for you may want to make a start now.

We had these beautiful Voile fabrics in from our lovely suppliers at Rowan and I have decided to make some lovely scarves for my sisters for Christmas. These 3 fabrics are Wish Voile by Valori Wells for Free Spirit Fabrics.

Haven’t they got great names!

I have chosen to use Studio Sketchbook Roses in Butter from Amy Butler’s Alchemy Studio Collection for the first scarf, it is a very easy make!

Studio Sketchbook Roses in Butter from Amy Butler's Alchemy Studio CollectionI used half a metre of fabric and just under a metre of pink pom pom

Simply fold the fabric in half, right sides together and sew up the full wiidth of the fabric to make a tube, neaten the edge with pinking shears or a zig-zag stitch.
