A while back I posted a scarf tutorial using a beautiful piece of Amy Butler Voile and pom pom trim.
Since then I have made several more as Christmas presents, these ones are even easier because they have fringe trim which is very simple to attach!
On the TrixieLixie website we have the fabric and fringe trim already packed up into kits for £15, so all you need to do is follow the instructions and make a gorgeous scarf.
This is how it is done: fold the piece of fabric in half, right sides together and sew along the width
Then finish the seam with either a zig-zag stitch, a serger or my favourite – pinking shears
Turn the right way around and then fold the ends under by about 1cm and pin the fringe inside, then sew in place.
And thats it! You’re done, either keep it for yourself or give it as a lovely gift!
Mine are all gifts and I have found (in my stash of things to good to be thrown away) these great boxes to put them in and I am going to decorate them with fabric and trim just like this beautiful box that a friend of mine decorated for me for my birthday (it had wonderful hand made shower gel and body lotion in it that she had also made!)
Thats 3 more Christmas presents sorted, back to the sewing machine to make some more! Happy Sewing!
Thanks for sharing, what a simple yet effective idea 🙂 they all look beautiful
