This weekend my girl and I did a little sewing together and made ourselves each a new scarf with Anna Maria Horner's lovely Loulouthi.
I stashed some Loulouthi voile and flannel recently from Modern Fabric Studio (for a great price!) and used the same directions I gave for my Simple Children's Scarf tutorial, just altering the measurements to allow for wider and lengthier scarves. I'm planning on adding the how-to for these to my tutorial page, as well.
It was a great afternoon project for the two of us to do together!
Anna Maria's flannels are so soft and wonderful! We both prefer the feel of these fabrics around our necks, over a knitted scarf. She chose this aqua Flower Circles print in Maiden.
I chose an aqua thread to add my top stitching.
These are my very favorite prints! The voile is Clippings in Forrest and the flannel, Flower Circles in Twilight.
My new rotary cutter came just in time!
Our scarves were quick and easy to make. The combination of the voile and flannel make them so super soft and snuggly!
Aren't they pretty?
We think so!
And now, a giveaway winner!
