Fleecy Winter Scarf with patchwork

A little something I whipped together by the sewing machine! Ta-da:

Summer-winter scarf

Summer-winter scarf

iHanna in the Summer-winter scarf I’ve made a fleecy winter scarf! Front side is a patchwork of pink fabrics, all ready-cut leftovers from the Pink Quilt I made finished this summer. I’m sitting inside the quilt as I type this, it’s one of those things I use almost every day and love so much. Maybe I should go get the scarf too, I’m getting cold as I sit and type by the computer.

The backside is a fleecy fabric I bought to make especially for making a scarf with patchwork! It has orange flowers and pink strawberries spilled all over and it’s as soft as fleece should be! Pink and orange is a perfect match to me. As is winter clothes with summer warmth built into them. And happy fabric patterns and me. And handmade in my hands. Perfect matches made in heaven?

This scarf is another one of those tiny sewing projects I have been planning to get to soon. I mentioned that I have several little things I want to sew when I finished The Smilla pot-holders. Right now I’m sewing a sweater for me, so it’s a slow progress as I don’t get to the sewing machine very often.

My mom made a smilar one in blue, but she didn’t have such a nice fleece fabric so she took at thinner fabric and hers looks like more like a fireplace mantel piece, so I guess it will be used as such! But a table cloth isn’t to bad either. Mine works as a scarf because of the fluffy yellow fleece fabric.

The quilted edge of my fleece winter scarf. Isn’t it pretty nice, the fleece and the cotton together like that? In heaven, I’m telling ya, in heaven…

Smilla in the scarf

Smilla does not want to be inside the scarf with me as I pose for self-timer photography in my new Hello Kitty-nightgown… I would’ve taken these photos outside on a frosty white morning but I didn’t feel like going outside in my nightgown and nope, I’m not putting on clothes today. Sorry, not even for you girls! ;-)

    Cute fabrics! That scarf looks like it should keep you warm on the snowiest of days. I have tons of fleece piled up just waiting to be made into things… I guess I will add a scarf to the list. I love warm and cozy!!

  19. Cathy says:

    Wonderful scarf Hanna. So pretty and cheery on cold winter days. What a good idea to improve the warmth by adding a fleece to the back. Very creative. Love that Smilla too.

  20. leah says:

    what a sweet scarf! i love it! and i’m also loving those hello kitty shorts(?)!! :-)

    I love your patchwork scarf – it does look really warm and comfy. I’ve been making a bunch of patchwork scarves, using tweeds, for Christmas presents. I like seeing how all the different fabrics combine and how even if using the same fabrics for two scarves, they both can look completely different.

  22. miz katie says:

    Gorgeous! I love the design.

  23. Linnea says:

    Your scarf is so beautiful, Hanna. I think it is the prettiest scarf I’ve ever seen. Ever! You’re awesome.
