A nice light scarf

Gosh I have trouble thinking up blog titles. I can only hope that most people are like me and just barely glance at the title before going on to read the blog entry.

I just love Japanese sewing and craft, and one of my favourite blogs is Mairuru - she makes the cutest things, and I get the impression that they're all hand sewn, something I can't even imagine having the time or the patience (or the skill, for that matter) to do.

One of the projects she's blogged is a cotton scarf, and I loved it so much that I had to make one of my own. Of course mine was machine sewn :) I bought the two very thin and fine cottons from Spotlight. I designed it and cut out the patchwork pieces from paper first, and I've kept the pattern pieces because I'm thinking of making another one sometime.

The scarf is warm and soft to wear, and not prickly like wool scarves can be. I am so glad I made it, thanks for the inspiration Mairuru :)

That looks so pretty Louise. I'd love to see the light fabric IRL as the delicate colour that runs through it looks beautiful. Enjoy!

This is gorgeous. Glad it's not prickly too!

Sorry I have not been here - well, forever. However, it looks like you have been having loads of fun with your new projects. The scarf looks great.

Miss G keeps asking me when she can see Miss M, so I will try and remedy that soon. Hope you're all well.

This looks great!
It would make a great gift as well so I may have to 'borrow' the link and add it to my project pile :)
