sytc win: scarf tutorial

so last week the challenge was mittens.
i kind of went out on a limb and made "the perfect accessory for your mittens scarf"
you guys didn't care and voted for it anyways! thanks!
i asked my good friend to see if i could use her adorable daughter. i think she did a fantastic listening and being patient with me as i tried to "direct" a live model. i'm much more used to taking pictures of non moving things...or my kids which move way too much so i can blame the picture not coming out to that.
she didn't even complain as i toted her around in the cold! isn't she so cute? kind of wish skinny jeans looked like that on my thighs.
so introducing the flannel scarf
perfect to keep you warm, and keep you looking stylish doing it.
go can buy the tutorial here

Carol T said...

I love this!! I have a question for you. Do you use a ruffler foot or a regular foot when you make the ruffles?

Dogwood said...

I knew you would win! I voted for your scarf. I am able to recognize your very creative creations. Keep up the great work! Yipee...

Love the scarf. I bet it is the most cozy warm with are the criteria for a favorite scarf.

HOHOHO

Dogwood said...

Oh yes and who is the darling model?

V and Co. said...

the model is my good friend's daughter.

no ruffle foot involved...i just made tension up on the top thread by holding the spool on top a little. it creates the ruffles as you go.

Seriously LOVE this! I am a novice in the sewing department but plan to give this a whirl. BTW those jeans on the model unbelievable. I just tell myself that I looked like that before kids. (I lie to myself a LOT!)

Ok, I must know where the model got her sweater dress and the fuzzy hooded coat. Love them both.

LOVE the scarf. Will be making one soon. When I find the time!!

Love your site!

Disney said...

Oh. My goodness. I would have voted for this if the theme had been "toilet paper" because it's that beautiful. Great job!!

michele said...

vanessa--i made it! yay! took me for.ev.er to do the ruffles because even though i followed your suggestion about holding the thread up by the spool i forgot to adjust my stitch length and the ruffles were coming out too tight. ugh. i figured it out about three-quarters of the way through why it wasn't working right *sigh*

Darling scarf and darling girl!

Leslie said...

I can't tell you how much I loved making this. It was such fun! I made it in a bright orange and I love it! Thanks for sharing your creative ideas with all of us. And you completely saved my on the ruffling technique. It was so quick and my ruffles were all relatively even. Thanks!

Darin, Jenn and Ivy said...

I made one last night in black and love it! I think I'm going to use this idea to make a skirt for my little girl with the rest of my flannel. Yay for ruffles!

Amy R said...

Congrats on the win but I'm so bummed! I've been out of town an unable to check the blogs I follow. . . so I missed getting your tutorial! Bummer. But, congrats anyway!
