Weekend sewing: linen scarves

Weekend sewing:  linen scarves

As you’ll all probably aware by now, I do love an accessory, and particularly a scarf.  Are you surprised to hear that the focus of my sewing this weekend was linen scarves?

Scarf 1:  A olively/brown Italian linen remnant from Cutting Edge, that had been lurking in the stash for a while, is now the perfect spring scarf.


The linen had been washed, and I quite liked the look of the raw edges, so I trimmed the tangled bits and sewed two lines of stitching 1/8″ and then 1/4″ from each raw edge.  I used a narrow stitch length to hopefully stop further unravelling.  The result… a quick and satisfying project.

Scarf 2:  On Saturday morning I spent a blissful hour in Tessuti checking out (read here drooling over) all their new stock.  I came home with (amongst other things!) some gauze like linen in an eye-catching blue/green colour.  A simple double-fold narrow hem on each of the raw edges and now it’s  now being called a scarf!  Simple pleasures readers.



And Miss B came to the rescue with an umbrella when it started to rain!
