When we picked up this beautiful Nani Iro double gauze earlier this week, I knew it had to become a scarf. I love the way my first Infinity scarf using Folksy Flannels turned out, so I went ahead and made this one the same way! I used Anna Maria Horner's Figuring 8 scarf method with a few differences. I used 1 yard of 44" wide cotton, cutting four 9" strips instead of 18" strips. I simply cut off the selvedges and sewed it as she does. It ends up a little longer and obviously skinnier, but if you wrap it around your neck 3 times, it looks just as full as hers! I am in love with this one, it's lightweight, and the fabric itself is a piece of art!
tutorial last night! I had a little trouble with it originally because I used regular 1/2" elastic. It made the back look and fit really weird! So I picked up some no-roll 1" elastic, and it was MUCH better! I think that there is still a little too much fabric in the back for my fit, but that's alright, it fits! Now I have to finish cutting out the stencils! :)
Sew to Speak! Hands down the coolest quilt shop I've ever been in. Super cutely decorated and literally ALL modern fabrics! Can't wait to go back next time we're down visiting!

Wow, I was chatty this evening! Can you tell I'm lonely? Michael (the boyfriend!) has been away for 3 weeks visiting family and won't be back still for another week! It's been weird, thank goodness George has been here to keep me company! :)
