I had seen THIS unique DIY scarf pattern and picked up the supplies a month or so ago. So over the weekend I decided to sew a little. I wanted to change it up a bit and make one for the upcoming baseball season. No matter what age or field our sons played on, it was ALWAYS the coldest spot in the county. With that said, I’m sure I have some friends that would love to have one for the beginning of the 2017 season.
The supplies I used – fleece, cotton fat quarters, faux sheepskin –
I cut according to the directions however I tweaked the size a little to make a shorter/smaller scarf.
I also changed the process a little by lacing the ‘band’ on the scarf before I pulled it through to sew the ends together.
I found this to be less cumbersome.
I tried to pick colors that represented the local high school Cougars but you could use any or even make without the band – rolled it out!
And the finished product looks something like this.
Not sure i completely like it but it is warm and cozy for sure! Here’s another style I made during the holidays that is very warm as well. I grabbed the pattern from She Can Sew –
You basically wrap it around your neck twice then button. (Can’t you just see a head instead of a canister?! LOL) Both were fairly easy to make and the options as far as colors for the fleece are endless. Sports teams. Kids characters. Pastels. Bold/Brights. Solid. Pattern. You name it and it’s out there. I typically shop at JoAnn’s and very seldom is the fleece not on sale. Well, if it is you can typically find a COUPON.
With valentine’s day right around the corner, there are a couple of projects on my list. A heart pot holder….Used all year long with many different fabric options. I also found a post-it holder which is adorable. I always have one in my purse but go for the larger size. I plan to figure out how to adjust in order to fit the size I prefer.
Be sure to check back to see the finished products. Happy Sewing!
