FO: To Infinity and Beyond
But by the time I got back the sky was as grey as my fabric and the DOG was sprawled full-length on my lovely shiny floor. When he stood up, there was a crime-scene-style mud-stain and tell-tale footprints right round the table... canine and human.
Let there be colour! Let there be pattern! Let there be PRINT!
Design: The Infinity Scarf from Anna Maria Horner. Instructions here.
Fabric: Bought as a kit from Fanciful Fabrics on Etsy. If you are quick, they are on sale right now. The yellow is a cotton velveteen, the blue is a voile.
Luckily, I decided to sew the long seams first, because of course the velvet wanted to shift in one direction, while the voile wanted to go the other way, no matter how many pins I used. So my trimming required some "squaring off" of the tube before I joined the ends together, machining the velvet layer, and catch-stitching the voile layer end to end.
It's just a big fabric tube loop. That's all it is. But the COLOURS! I dare anyone to feel blue wearing this piece of confectionery!
Scruffybadger's skirt. I came so close to copying Ms Badger and making a wild floral skirt! But when I realised I could have this print in velveteen in mustard?! Too much as a skirt, but just massive enough as an infinity scarf!
I match the vacuum cleaner!
What more can a girl ask?
