Thank you all so much for the quilt love yesterday! It means so much to me, Thank You!!
Today I'm sharing a new scarf that I made recently that I love, love, love! I whipped it up quick using my Simple Scarf Tutorial, some comfy stashed flannel in a soft denim blue color from Joann, and Art Gallery Fabrics new Voile Collection. These fabrics are so lovely, truly!
The beautiful softness of voile makes you want to cozy right up to it! I've been dreaming of stashing enough for a quilt back, wouldn't that be amazing?! But decided a new scarf would be the perfect thing to make with the one yard of this pretty blue Branch Silhouette print for now.
I love how perfectly this Voile pairs with heavier fabric weights like the flannel. The combination of the two make sewing with it so easy! The flannel gives a stability to the voile that keeps away any puckering or possibility of it being a little slippery to work with. It makes for some fun and easy sewing, with a finished project that really feels luxurious and special. A perfect sewn gift!
I'm taking a second Voile project to begin on the road with me this weekend when my husband and I head out for an overnight date. I plan to take my time with this one, to just enjoy it when an opportunity for some relaxing handwork can fit it to what we're doing over the next several weeks. This Impressions print seams like the perfect canvas for some Pearl Cotton embroidery!
Have you given Voile a try? Please feel free to share your experience with it or any links to a sewing project of your own that you've made using Voile. I'd love to see!! ♥, Maureen
