Buttons and patches and the cold wind blowing,
The hours pass quickly when I am sewing.
Kathy sent me the idea for this class from Becky's Fabrics and Bernina, in Lewiston Idaho! I actually called the store and asked if they minded if I used their scarf for a class, and they kindly agreed. You can tell from the photos that you don't really need a pattern...the fun part of this scarf is the dreaded MINKY cloth!!
So I had 2 different Minkys that I cut to my measurements. I used contrasting colors, and you can see that she really loves this turquoise and blue combination. I then let the girls pin the scarves right sides together, we fitted them with pockets and they sewed these down. Voila! Not just a scarf, Not just mittens, but SKITTENS!
The saving grace in the construction of this scarf was a walking foot. The entire scarf was sewn with one and I do think it might not have been possible without it. A good time was had by all, and I hope that the scarves are being used these cold winter days.
