Recycled Scarf




I haven't sewn in quite awhile, it's something I love to do but don't do often enough. There's something relaxing and rewarding about sitting down with an idea in my head and then creating it. So I thought I'd break out my sewing machine and make something this weekend. I have lots of old quilt pieces and vintage fabric that I've been wanting to do something with, so I thought I'd make a scarf...kind of like a quilt for your neck.
Living in Southern California there's such a small window of time where you need a scarf, so now I'm ready for those few days...




That was fun!

Oh these are fabulous! I could use a scarf 8 months out of the yr. here in Oregon. But I'm kinda like being all snuggled up. I also wear fuzzy ear muffs religiously!

You sound like me. I go through phases were I want to sew sew sew, then I burn myself out, and off to collage, then photography, then jewelry then etc....I become obsessed with things a little too easily then I get sick of doing it for a month. Oh and love love love the scarf.
