I kept Christmas present sewing to a minimum this year. I made some infinity scarves for my sisters-in-law and a half of a shirt (with the other half promised as soon as possible!) for my husband. Today you get the scarves.
I imagined them being worn as a single layer, like my sister-in-law is here (with a tiny peek at her new baby, my new niece!):
Or, doubled up as on my dress form below.
These scarves were really easy. For the red I began by cutting off one yard of the several yards I had on hand. I then folded it in half, right sides together, matching the selvedges. Then, I sewed along the selvedges to form a loop of fabric. I trimmed off the selvedge ends and used my walking foot to flat-fell the seam for a nice finish.
Would you believe this is my first ever flat-felled seam?! For some reason I thought it was going to be a lot trickier than it really was. It was so easy it motivated me to flat-fell the seams for my husband’s Christmas shirt!
When I picked up the teal from Fabmo, it came as one long knit tube. Does anyone know why it would come like that or what it was meant for originally? I never could figure it out, but it seemed perfect for an infinity scarf since all I had to do was cut it to size.
A no-sew scarf! Now, what’s the fun of that?!
Okay, now it’s your turn! Did you craft for the holidays? If so, did you go all out or did you take a minimalist approach, like me? What are your favorite things to sew for others?
