Cutest Softest Scarf by Kathie
I have been wanting to make some Infinity or Figure 8 scarves for my girls in Portland. I just saw this tutorial and had to make them. They truly take no more than maybe 10 minutes to finish!
I zoomed over to my LQS and found some luscious black Minkee (my girls' favorite non-color). I also stopped by JoAnn's just to compare their minkee-like fabric and found this amazing red, soft, fuzzy something (don't know what it is) and their grey pebbly soft fabric. The red makes a mess everywhere while you are cutting and sewing (and buying) but sews up fairly easily (I used my zipper foot so it wouldn't get caught in loops) and its so so soft and fun.
I was disappointed in the quality of the grey. It looks great until you compare it to the actual Minkee fabric. I think I'll pay the extra $3.00/yd from now on. BUT . . . aren't they cute?! And I now have Thanksgiving gifts for my two girls (young women) and my daughter's mother-in-law.
