Infinity scarves and giveaways


Keep reading for giveaways!

This week I was delighted to be able to test Rebecca of Making Rebecca Lynne's new pattern for infinity scarves. She has cleverly devised one pattern for 3 different versions - The Skinny, The Hood and The Mama. All gorgeous, simple to make and so stylish!! The beauty of these is there's so many options and they would look completely different depending on the fabric you chose.

Firstly I made The Skinny:


I used 3 fat quarters that I absolutely love but had no specific plans for. One was from the stale stash swap with the fabulous Danny and the other two are Swallow Skies in Storm and Little Bits in Honey from 'The Birds and The Bees' by Tula Pink.

the preggy belly shot!

The pattern is so well written and it took hardly any time at all so I went straight on to The Hood:


I had bought these two prints especially for this project because I love them so much! They are Spotted in the Crowd in Amelia from 'Field Study' by Anna Maria Horner and Marqueterie in Berry from 'Indie' by Pat Bravo. The pattern actually shows 6 different fabrics for this scarf (so easy with fat quarters!) but you can really adjust it to what you have or the fabrics you chose to work with.

I am so super happy with both of my scarves and they really make me smile when I wear them! I can not recommend this pattern enough, I absolutely give it 5 stars! A beginner could easily make these scarves and an accomplished sewer would find so many great options with it... I'm totally thinking some embroidery would make a nice addition too! You don't even need a sewing machine if you wanted to hand sew them. I used a machine for all the seams except the final closing, which I hand sewed using a ladder stitch.

Thank you so much for letting me test the pattern Rebecca! My wardrobe thanks you too - they add a great pop of colour :)

Here's some outtakes:



I will totally be making more of these and they will be great to give as Christmas presents.
