After I cut my Mandy Boat Tee from my letter print fabric last week, I had a wide strip left over along the bottom. Plus a half width chunk that was left from the section where the sleeves were cut. I was able to join those two half strips and then use the two pieces together, so I wouldn't waste anything from this amazing fabric.
I decided that because the leftover bits were so wide (around 8" deep) I'd make an infinity scarf. I can wear it with the original top, or to jazz up other outfits. I used the same procedure as my last set of infinity scarves way back in 2016. This is a super quick project to use up leftover knits, and I wear scarves a lot so it's perfect for me.
Also, I hate wasting fabric, especially when I really love it! Now I have just a couple of odd shaped scraps of a few inches left, much more satisfying :)
This is also a great last-minute gift project, as it doesn't require a lot of fabric or precision sewing either. If you have bits of knit in your stash and are in need of a quick gift, give it a go.
Great scrap busting idea! Especially with that fabric you really love!ReplyDelete
It's so quick, too :)Delete
What an elegant outfit, with that one-of-a-kind infinity scarf! Thank you for the link to your scarf instructions. I hope to make one in recycled silk velvet; that should feel wonderful on the skin.ReplyDelete
Ooh, silk velvet! That would feel so amazing.Delete
Great idea! I love wearing scarfs. Have you twisted this one?ReplyDelete
It has a bit of a twist, but because the fabric is thinner and drapier than the last one it doesn't fill out as much. Still super though!Delete
