Simple DIY Scarf with Embroidered Edging

I'm a big believer in making your own clothing and accessories, especially something as simple as a scarf. As a sewer I never buy anything I know I can make because I can't justify spending the usually exorbitant price thats literally just a few straight seams and some poor quality fabric.

Of course while I was at the fabric store I had a looksie at the sale table (I can't ever pass up a bargain) and came across some muslin in a subtle grey. Now I know in the USA, your muslin is what we Aussies call calico, so I have no idea what you call this fabric! If you know drop me a comment! Essentially its the fabric commonly used for baby swaddles, it's a 100% cotton, open weave and breathable fabric :)



All I needed was 1 meter (1 yard) of fabric which I cut in half and joined using a french seam to keep those pesky fraying edges away, while creating a seam which would look pretty too :)

I hemmed around the whole scarf then spent that night cuddled up under my electric blanket stitching the whole edge in a combination of blues and pinks. Bliss!






P.S  Don't for get to enter the giveaway before Saturday!
