If you are itchin‘ to sew, but don’t think you have the time, make a scarf. This week, part two of Sew Amazing Scarves is the featured online, streaming video where you’ll see how to create six scarf options.
Listed below are the scarf designs. Vote for your favorite and you could be the random winner of the book Sew Amazing Scarves, featuring 20 scarf techniques in all! Details are listed at the end of this blog.
Knot Your Average Scarf
Knot Your Average Scarf is the first scarf option you’ll see demonstrated online. Use either knit or woven fabric; the scarf has a definite focal point. You’ll learn how to knot, and then sew!
Ever think you could complete a sewing project in a less than a half hour? It’s true! The 20-Minute Scarf takes about 10 minutes to cut and another 10 minutes to sew or serge. With only four seams, the 20-Minute Scarf just may become your go-to gift to serge or sew!
Different fabrics, different looks—that statement couldn’t be more obvious when looking at theses two scarf options. Even though the same pattern was used, the edge finish plus the fabric choice changed this scarf from elegant to casual. It’s called an S-Curve Scarf. Two donut shapes are the pattern pieces. Wonder how it’s made? I think you’ll be surprised!
Lettuce-Edge S-Curve Scarf
This scarf started out as six circles. With a little creative cutting, each circle turns into a flounce. It’s practically a no-sew technique, since non-raveling interlock knit is the fabric of choice.
All Knotted Up Scarf
For scarves with plenty of dimension and texture, turn knit fabric into yarn-type strips and tie knots! From fleece to slinky knit, use 1/2 yard of fabric or less to fashion your version of the “All Knotted Up Scarf.”
Nancy’s Corner Guest—Debra King, Art Quilter
When most of us see a conglomeration of out-dated ties hanging in the back of a closet, we might consider them as potential yard sale items. The guest I interviewed during the Nancy’s Corner segment of this show thinks of ties as storytellers—items that are ideal for art quilts. I know you’ll enjoy watching my interview with Debra King, an art teacher and quilter.
