A Pretty Voile Scarf : :

New Voile Scarf with Art Gallery Fabrics gorgeous new voiles!

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

The scarf is most beautiful, I so enjoy seeing your projects. I have never used Voile but I will be keeping my eye out to get some soon.

Marija said...

This is beautiful! What a great idea to combine voile and flannel - must try this! :)

I can't wait to see your finished embroidery project. I've been wanting to get into embroidery for a long time...it is so beautiful. I happen to have some of that voile art gallery fabric too. I made an infinity scarf with it, using that print on one side, and another floral voile on the other side.

Very, very pretty. I love AGF. I used voile to make a little girl peasant top.

I think my Voile Embroidery project will become a Summer scarf using only Voile. I'm going to add the details and then see. Embroidery is so fun, you should try it!

I was going to make a scarf for my niece for Valentines but I believe I have run out of time. She is one of my employees and I made one a checkbook cover, the other sunglasses holder (which I did not complete last night) and scarf for niece. Too much going on this week. 3 birthdays, spending Valentines evening with 50 youth at Winter Jam, leaving Friday for short vacation! Work gets in the way of my sewing......

These scarves are just gorgeous! I've been looking for voile to make infinity scarves for myself and some friends, and couldn't find anything nice enough so I settled for seersucker. But these fabrics would have been perfect.

Allison C said...

I just ordered a bunch and am excited to try a simple patchwork quilt with them. Hopefully they are not too difficult to work with. I love that pinkish red print that AGF is coming out with. Can't wait to see what you make on your trip!

I'd love to make more clothing out of voile, but I've got a stack of fabric I've bought for clothing in the past to use up first!

Mar García said...

I've never used voile, I think it's time to give it a chance (summertime is coming and it would be nice to make a dress).
P.S. your scarf is so beautiful! and it is always a pleasure reading your posts when I come back from work late at night.

Judith said...

What is the finished size of your scarf? Thanks. Lovely!

Maureen Cracknell Handmade said...

Hi Judith!! The finished size of this scarf is about 8" x 92". One yard of cotton voile is 36" x 55" so it makes a nice long scarf, which I really like! :)

Katy Cameron said...

Oh now that is pretty, love the colour and the pattern. Love the other ones in that beach pic too! I've done a couple of different types of infinity scarves with voile, but not anything else yet - I wanted to do a skirt at one point, but couldn't find enough of the fabric I wanted to use anywhere so I abandoned the project in a huff ;o)

Rosa said...

Wow,I`d love to make one .It`s absolutely beautiful!!
