I have been thinking I could easily sew an infinity scarf - I have seen tutorials all over blog-land. So my fabric purchases were not cotton (shock!) but rather filmy type fabrics (don't ask - I don't know what they really are, probably polyester- ha ha)
So on Saturday, I decided to try it. Each piece I bought was two yards. I took one piece and tried to tear it down the middle like I do my quilting fabric - this stuff doesn't rip! Next stop the rotary cutter. Folks this stuff slips. It is like trying to hold onto a greased hog on a hot Alabama day. I couldn't find the grain line so I just had at it. It worked out fine for this.
I sewed the long edge then turned it right side out. I put the ends together and sewed it sort of like sewing in a shoulder seam. I went as far as I could go then I used a ladder stitch to sew the last few inches.
I didn't have a female model handy so this excuse my chin and neck wattle. I tried to blur that part out when I edited the photo.
|I love this fabric design, I just wish it were quilting cotton!|
I also wove another scarf Saturday for an order. It is exactly like the one I made for myself so I didn't take a picture. But maybe I can get one of the purchaser wearing it.
Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated.
