I Washed The Scarves I Made… Amazing!

26 Apr

I made these this morning and last night, washed them up, and here they are. I made three of them, and all I want to do is make more, but I have a commission I am in the middle of, and I’m also out of wash away stabilizer! I did use some fancy thread sample I got from a friend. It’s called Wonderfil Dazzle, and I used it as cording with my cording foot, and it just turned out amazing! I didn’t have a bunch of it, so I used yarn on the other ones! Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get back to a Zelda quilt. Wish me luck!

I Think I Am Addicted To Scarves

12 Jan

 

Well, my original weekend plans were to make a quilt top, but because of the weather, my fabric shipment got delayed and I couldn’t. So instead I broke out the serger, and got the knits I got on clearance at Joann’s, and I made some scarves. I even made a 14 foot scarf for myself! I’m not going to lie, I just love playing with it! Now that my fabric came today I can get started on cutting the fabric for the quilt. Wish me luck!

Infinity Scarf Made With Knit Fabric

9 Jan

So, I’ve never really worked with knit fabric before. I mean, I’ve made t-shirt quilts before, but I’ve never done any sewing project with knit fabric before. It was on the clearance rack at Joanns, so I bought some. This is my first time making anything with knit fabric, and it turned out great! I used the serger for most of it, and finished it off by hand. I even twisted to tube out as I sewed it. I think I’ll make another one tonight.

Silky Prints Fabric For Scarf Making

5 Jan

I did some heavy fabric shopping the other day. I bought these gorgeous silky print fabrics and I’m just so excited to do some work with them! I have plans fr a couple of different kinds of scarves. I think my favorite is the orange and teal! I can’t wait to make something exciting. I know I’m making infinity scarves, but I’ve got a couple of other ideas to mess around with! Wish me luck!

I Finished An Infinity Scarf

2 Jan

I took a quick break from sewing a quilt to make an infinity scarf last night. I just got this bug up my ass, and next thing I know I’m pulling out my serger and making a scarf! I think it turned out just marvelous! I used the rolled hem on my serger and some woolly nylon, and made the outside seam twist around it, adding some texture, and making sure it wasn’t flat! I just love it! Now to get back to quilting!

I’m Making Scarves

1 Jan

 

So, I was at Joann fabrics the other day and clearance fabric was 50% off…. and I walked out of the store with some silky print fabric… Now I’m way into making scarves! I only made a couple because I have a quilt to finish up in the next few days, but once that is done, I’ll start pumping these out. I was thinking about putting them in a consignment shop, and putting them up on Etsy. How much do you think I could charge for them?

Looking For Mannequin Heads

31 Dec

Now. I know a lot of my readers know a lot of things, but I’m hoping someone can tell me where to find good Mannequin heads, and possibly arms/hands… I’m going to be making some scarves and I want to use those as a display. Any clues? I see them on eBay, but I was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere else?

Thanks in advance!
