    hi! Your site inspired me to do a little inventive sewing last night – or shall we say this morning. I am just to the point of sizing and hemming a cute jacket and skirt for my horse obsessed 6 year old daughter. I left the outfit by her bed and when she awoke she was SO excited!! Yeah!! Thanks for the inspiration, the lack of sleep is overshadowed by the thrill of completing the job.

  28. Kathryn says:

    I love that embroidered butterfly. I just bought a hoop and floss yesterday, perhaps I can come up with something nice.

  37. Tristana says:

    Once you make one, you will soon be making more!

    Okay today, I got in gear. Picked out scraps to make my scarf!

  39. Andrea says:

    I have been wanting to make one of these scarves.. as well as 5 million other things I want to sew.
    I will have to get to it before it gets cold. Winter is right around the corner and this is a great way to put all of my scraps to good use!

  40. I did some scarves this week but geared it more towards the “teen” age girl. They loved them to my surprise and had a great time learning to sew and putting the fabric combinations together themselves!

  41. Mellissa says:

    Wonderful scarves! They are all so cute!

  42. Alisa says:

    The scarves are looking really nice! I’ve been enjoying reading the reviews.

    I’ve just about finished my first scarf, so I need to finish it up and photograph it before I move on to the next one I have planned out in my head! They are so easy and quickly become addictive!

  49. Carey says:

    These scarves are popping up all over the place! I was at Jo-Ann’s today and saw some cute fat eighths, but resisted the urge… I have so much fabric here already! Someday I’ll get to making one of my own…

  50. Mandy says:

    I love all the scarves. I would make one, but living in the deep south I am afraid it would never get worn! Love the skirt tutorial. I just bought that pattern and have been wanting to use it! Great Month!

  51. Sally K. says:

    They’re all too cute!

  52. I still haven’t made mine yet. I keep getting distracted by other projects. But they are so fun to see.

    Love the scarves…..I’m adding that to my “to do list”

  56. kayla_d says:

    Oh, I do love these scarves, especially #8, 9, and 10. I think I’ll have to make one for myself!

  57. Alice says:

    Yay, it’s the weekend. I hope I get some time to sew. I have been sewing when my daughter naps so I can get my ‘sew’ on. Have been inspired to try things with trim….. who would’ve thought it can turn a ‘blah’ pair of kids pants into a ‘wow they are so cool’ pair of pants.

  58. suzi says:

  59. suzi says:

  92. laeroport says:

    Man, the only kids clothes that I’ve had time to make this month were Renaissance Festival costumes. Does that count?

  97. Suzanne says:

    I adore all of the sew scarves. What a great stashbuster and quick gift! I’m totally inspired by the flickr gallery.

    I love the scarf idea as a Christmas present.

  103. Amy says:

    Excited to say that I’ve completed three scarves so far, but I’ve not photographed them yet. I’m a bit intimidated by the whole flickr thing! Some day…

  104. Jessica Hood says:


  105. Kara Marie says:

    I’ve always loved scarves in the fall, the possibilities of making your own are endless! Thanks for the ideas!

  106. Mika says:

    Thanks for posting all of the pictures of the scarves. I’ve been thinking for years about sewing some kind of scarf. I saw one at a store once that was velour patchwork with a satiin stitch outlining the shapes. It was so simple in construction, I thought, hey, I can do that! and for way cheaper ($100) than the store price. I should do this to use up some of the odd fabrics in my stash that won’t work in a bigger project (because I don’t have enough, etc.).

  107. Shelley says:

    Must make scarves!

  108. Regina says:

    I love all the kid ideas too. I keep adding them to my long long list of things to do. The scarves are wonderful!

  113. Emily S. says:

    Love all the ideas for kids!

  114. mj says:

    oh cute scarves! love the mosaic of them.

  115. Lori says:

  118. Shannon says:

  119. Jeannine says:

    Those scarves are adorable, I’m just a bit hesitant to make a scarf for my (VERY active and squirmy) two year old. Maybe next year.
