A little something I whipped together by the sewing machine! Ta-da:
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 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! ;-)
Beautiful and cozy fleecy scarf !!! I love it with the night gown !!! I stayed in mine all day yesterday… aren’t those days great ?
Have a cozy one !
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!!
I love it! It’d make a great customizable gift, too. Oh, if only my sewing machine WORKED.
Very beautiful! And it almost matches the journals (covers) you made too. :)
Oh, I like it!! That looks so snuggly!
It’s cool when you are in the pictures. We rarely get to see you and you’re so pretty modeling your lovely art!
Aww, Smilla is the kind of cute that just demands kisses!
I can’t *begin* to tell you how much I love this scarf!!! It’s just fabulous : )
Very cozy sweet scarf…like the description of all the parts coming together.
Wear it in good health!
Oh, how beautiful! And isn’t it fully – I was just thinking about your granny square scarf from last year the other day. Now I can think about this one, too! :-)
Absolutt flott ? vikle rundt halsen!
Og ang?ende 2009 som art Journaling Year: absolutt!!
Great scarf! It looks so incredibly cozy :) That would be a great gift to make for family and friends too — who couldn’t use a scarf? Was it a pretty quick project?
Beautiful scarf! The colours are yummy and fit you perfectly.
Today is one of those days when I wish I could have stayed home in my pyjamas all day!
Oooh–how much do I love this?! I think a blue one is calling my name.
Oooh how pretty and cozy, I love it! The kitty is cute too. =)
Beautiful! You have inspired me to make one for myself. Thank you for sharing.
It’s so cheery! I love it. :)
This scarf looks so comfy and so warm, and Hanna, I think I would know your signature on it even if you didn’t tell us it was by you!
And it comes with a kitty!! yay.
S? kan vinteren bare komme an ! Du er parat til at m?de den :-)
great winter scarf in the cutest colours and patterns!
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.
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.
Gorgeous! I love the design.
Your scarf is so beautiful, Hanna. I think it is the prettiest scarf I’ve ever seen. Ever! You’re awesome.
[…] * After I finished my winter patchwork scarf I have admired Tracey’s most recent creations as she’s been sewing with fleece too! Go check out her post Remnants are my friends (and later posts) in her blog Giggleface Studio as she is sewing fleece toys from Fiona Goble’s book Fleecie Dolls! It looks like a great book for toy makers and it makes we think of dolls and toys. I haven’t made any in a while and I miss them (it!). […]
Very pretty! I love how you did this.
I’m not a girly girl but I surprisingly find your scarves so cute and pretty! :D
