To Infinity and Beyond

We're very big on handmade gifts around here and this year Audrey wanted to make infinity scarves for her teachers.  How could I say no, even when she snagged the last of my Coral Loulouthi Velveteen

She also managed to find this coral Carolina Chambray in my stash.  I can't believe how perfectly these go together!

For the second one she used some of the new Robert Kaufman corduroy paired with Kiwi voile.  It's a great weight, a little more drape than the velveteen but still warm enough for winter.

There are a million tutorials out there to make your own, these are loosely based on Anna Maria Horner's Figuring the 8.  I'm still not ready to turn her loose with the rotary cutter but she did all the pinning and sewing herself.

I was hoping she'd make one for me also but no such luck;-)  I had to make this one for myself, this time Marine Loulouthi Velveteen and some slubbed silk.  These are so quick and easy I have no doubt we'll be making more!!!

  4. Love these scarves. She did a great job picking fabrics and sewing it all together. Anybody would be lucky to get those scarves. : )
