my figure 8 scarf

As an early birthday present to myself, I decided to order up a kit from Anna Maria Horner’s shop: the figure 8 scarf.  It was worth it to me to just buy the kit.  So I sat down this weekend and sewed it up! 

It’s a really quick project (even though I did screw up in a couple spots and had to rip some seams because I wasn’t paying attention) and now I have a cute new scarf to wear with my new coat, which was an early present from my mom. 
The voile and velveteen are so soft and the colors are just too pretty to resist.  I think I’ll have to order some more innocent crush. 
And as for my Christmas present sewing, I guess I’d better bust a move and start doing some sewing!

    Happy early Birthday! I bought that exact same kit. I have yet to sew it up though so it’s really nice to see it. I hadn’t decided if I was going to make it a regular scarf or the figure 8 but seeing yours I think I’ll do the figure 8. So thanks!

    I have been thinking about ordering that kit as well! I do have acme voile kept from a dress I made, though, so i guess I could just order more velveteen.

    It turned out really cute, and i love the coat too!

    Anna, you are too cute!! Love the new coat with the ruffle down the front. Cute and chic at the same time. I’m still waiting on my order of Innocent Crush to come in – can’t wait to see it in person.

    The scarf looks perfect – Merry Christmas to you!!

    I, too, have a birthday this time of year and I always get myself something!
    This year I got a monster stuffed animal from http://www.perfectchildren.com. He/She (I haven’t decided yet) is wonderful!
    Hope you have a lovely holiday!

    Cute coat! Love the scarf…I just… like 10 min ago… ordered this same scarf kit.

  30. Laura 12.27.2010 at 3:59 pm #

    My scarf kit arrived today! Did you pre-wash your fabrics before sewing them or no? (Ah, the never-ending “to wash or not to was” debate!)

  31. Jeni 12.29.2010 at 1:43 am #

    Oh boy, this may have put me over the edge! I just bought a velveteen blazer, I may just need a velveteen scarf to go with it!!

    Love the photos, you are too cute! :)

    Back to the scarf… Got wanted to ask … did you use the full width shipped from the kit for yours? AMH didn’t post what width hers is and after draping around my neck I am thinking of making it thinner. Love the way yours looks on you!
