Hello seven thirty three Readers!! I'm Sammy from the blog
I'm so excited to be doing Friendly Tuesday here with Kim today! She is awesome. She was one of the first people to reach out to us when we started our blog and she has done an amazing job of helping a lot of beginner blogs get their feet off of the ground. Anyway, here is a fun project that I did recently that was really simple and a lot of fun!
I've been seeing elastic thread all over the place lately and I really wanted to find a project to try it out. After much debate I decided that I wanted to make myself a scarf. I love scarves. I have about a billion of them, and I could have a billion more and still be wanting. This one is really fun and can be worn loose in the summer or can be wrapped tighter in the winter. I love it!
To make this scarf, I started with some plain white knit fabric
And cut a strip 14 inches wide. It was probably about 5 ft long, though I didn't measure, you can make it as long or as short as you want.
I used the Dritz brand elastic thread. I was about $1.50 a spool and can be found with the elastic at Joann's.
Hand thread the bobbin with the elastic thread and use plain thread on the top of your sewing machine. I used a straight stitch at a 2 1/2 length and set the tension on my machine to the highest setting possible. Starting at the bottom of my scarf, I started sewing an S shape through the length of the scarf.
And sewed clear from one end of the scarf to the other.
Next I folded it in half hotdog way, right sides together, and sewed along the edge.
And flipped the scarf right side out.
Next I took the two ends and sewed them together.
And that's it. Super easy and way fun. I love this plain but just think of all of the different fabric options and colors and patterns you could do!
Thanks for having me over Kim. It was loads of fun and I hope that you will all stop over at Scraps N' Strings and see all of the other fun stuff that we have there. See you all soon!
