I’m not a believer in April’s Fools Day, but for those of you who are – I hope you’re enjoying your prank filled day of mayhem. We’ll see you on the flip side, while all the real adults and civilized folks are enjoying a normal day.
I’ve had a glorious extended weekend and cannot believe today is my last day off for a while (until I head to North Carolina to see Gidget). It was a nice weekend with lots of family time and cuddling with WareBear.
Indigo LaRue and I finally got some quality time together, which was much needed. We veered from our quilting (even though my massive bedroom quilt is now basted) and took on a few small projects.
Infinity scarves have been all the rage lately in Texas and I’ve already invested in two for the spring. Personally, my go to staple with every outfit is a scarf. It’s my favorite accessory and I have a whole section in my wardrobe dedicated to them. I’ve got heavy scarves, knitted scarves, crocheted scarves, and the list goes on. The infinity scarves are light weight, stylish, and now super easy to make! This makes it a great fashion statement to take into Spring and Summer.
With just a yard and a half of fashion fabric on clearance from JoAnn’s, I managed to crank out this amazing scarf! Not only that, but I managed to make two! Talk about amazing deal and stylish piece for the spring. I will admit that the second one was for my own personal collection, it was too cute to pass up and I had enough fabric left over.
Since I invested in a nice satin fashion fabric, I decided to give this style a go for another birthday gift as well. It’s not the best picture, but you kind of get the idea of it all. The flower is just added on from my flowers and bows collection that I use for my hair. It added a little bit of flair to the scarf and I figured that the receiver of this gift would be able to do just that. The satin is soft and it falls nicely – I think she’ll love it.
All in all, I’m so excited for Spring and the beautiful weather.
**Sidenote: The pattern was based on this infinity scarf from Simplicity. Super easy and took me about 15 minutes.
