This was the February project for my ASG neighborhood group. You might have seen the pattern in Threads a few months ago. It takes 2 yards of fabric. I scrounged around in my stash and found this fabric. Honestly, it has been in my stash for probably 10 years. I bought it at Fabricland in Mount Vernon, WA. Do we still have Fabriclands in this country?
The scarf is made up of 6 spiral pieces finished with a rolled hem.
Three spirals go on each side of a 4″ x 2 yd piece of fabric. This fabric was like sewing water. It could teach someone how to swear, so I decided to hand baste the spirals to the rectangle.
After I hand basted the spiral pieces, I decided to make a change in the pattern. The instructions tell you to sandwich the spiral pieces between two 4″ x 2 yd. rectangles. I decided to just use my serger and attach the spirals using a rolled hem to just one long rectangle. I really like how it turned out. The finished scarf is nice and light, and it was made completely with the serger.
I’ve also been making zippered bags. They are a Lazy Girl pattern, and so easy. This will be perfect for taking things back and forth to my ASG meetings.
I had fabric left over so I made three more.
They need a home. If you want one, let me know in a comment below. First 3 people to speak up, get one. Happy Daylight Savings!
