Have some quilt squares laying around not being put to use? Well, you could make some cute scarves with them.
I had a Moda charm pack (can't find what print this was) that I had sewn up strips of 9 to create a baby blanket. But, I never went further than that.
So, continuing with my "trying to to buy more stuff" thing, I decided to make some scarves with them for Christmas gifts.
It didn't take long at all and now I have three gifts done and a gift to give to one of you :)
What you need:
-9 five inch quilt squares for each scarf
-1/4 yard of flannel fabric for the backing (all of mine came from JoAnn's)
-10 inches of trim for the ends (I used pom pom trimming on all of mine)
1. Sew the squares together, right sides facing, to create a long row.
2. Place the row on the flannel and cut out the exact size of the quilt square row.
3. Place the flannel piece right side facing down and then put the quilt square row on top, right side facing up. Pin together.
4. Sew together down the sides, but leave a good inch or so free at the ends.
5. Pin on the trimming inbetween the 2 pieces of fabric on the ends. Sew the 3 layers together. Then sew up the sides if there is any place left open.
6. Go down the sides and clip towards the seam, making sure not to clip through the seam.
7. Throw in the washer or just wet it really good. Then put it in the dryer to dry.
8. When it comes out, you might have to pick off some threads, but other than that it is done.
They are so cute and they can fit a child or an adult. You just wrap it over in the front. I even joined in on the fun to show you how it would look on an adult.
