Sew a scarf Nancy Zieman



Day two of Sew-A-Scarf Week features a design by Donna Fenske of Nancy’s Notions. Donna’s unique approach for using a Yo-Yo Maker results in a drapable, elegant scarf or wrap.  Usually a Yo-Yo-Maker is used to create individual embellishments. This time the small flower style Yo-Yo Maker is the key product to use for creating the smocking on a large piece of fabric.


Yo Yo Maker Nancy Zieman blog



Use an 18″ crosswise strip of interlock knit and position the Yo-Yo Maker within the fabric. All the details are featured in the video.

It’s a hand sewing project with the edges finished using a decorative rotary blade. You can easily make this attractive scarf/wrap while listening to TV.

PS: If you see a few darker spots on the Yo-Yo Smocked Scarf, they’re rain drops! It’s been raining the last three days and we didn’t plan ahead.
