The weather in Seattle has been just gray and rainy the last couple weeks, except today where we had beautiful sunshine. And I need a little pop of color and something that reminds me of spring.
I found this awesome fat quarter on Sale the other day. It’s so bright and colorful. I just couldn’t walk away from it. Against my resolution, I just bought it and directly created something new with it.
I also got my “Made by Lili” Labels in the mail. These were a little Christmas/Birthday present to myself. I think it gives your crafts a touch of sophistication.
I love to wear scarfs and I do wear them most of the time. I have different colors and patterns, but nothing really bright and colorful. So I decided to create an infinity scarf out of the fat quarter.
I also have this white cardigan with gray embroidery, which I really like but never wear. I don’t like the fit of it and it just dusts away in my closet. I thought it would be the perfect contrast to the bright yellow and pink of the fabric. I like to recycle clothes, which I still like, but don’t wear. I have a hard time to give them away or sell them at consignment.
I cut the fat quarter in three long pieces and matched the size with the cardigan. I only used one of the front panels of the cardigan. This way I can reuse the other one for something else.
I used my serger for this project, because knit rolls up directly when you cut it. It was super easy to sew everything together. Just like butter.. so yummy.
When I want to tone the color down, I can reverse the scarf and just show the recycled cardigan.
And here is my pop of color again — to welcome Spring into my world.
