I just love projects that use up those scraps laying around that are too pretty to part with, but too small to really serve a purpose. Here I found these beautiful hand dyed wool remnants. There was a perfect amount to make a scarf for one of my little ones.
To make your own, you just need at least 8 fabric scraps the measure approximately 9 inches by 7 inches. Sewing the 9 inch sides together you will get a scarf that measures approximately 9 inches wide by 56 inches long. Here I permitted a half inch seam allowance.
Never throw away those scraps!
When I first purchased this beautiful wool fabric, the leaves had begun to change color and the air was brisk in the mornings and evenings. Now we are in the midst of a heat wave and it's been tough working with wool! Spending the evenings on the boat and taking dips in the lake were a nice reward as I'm not quite ready to let summer go.
These scarves may be purchased here.
