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!
I 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.
Turn the right way round and iron, turning the unfinished ends in by about 1.5cm pinning the pom pom between both edges;
I then used an ordinary zipper foot to sew this seam, its quite tricky because the pom pom rolls about the place as you sew!
Its as simple as that, one down, 3 more to go!
Here is the finished article;
And here is my cat Spike helping me make it!
