I only have one XMAS item for October, and I LOVE it!! I finally found a tutorial on how to make an infinity scarf! This one, that my dd is modeling for me, is a Christmas gift for my mother! She loves scarves, and I know she loves this fabric too! When you make this you cut it all in one long piece, but it's pretty narrow so I have enough fabric to make 4 of these. The tutorial that I used actually called for the scarf to be 11.5" wide, but mine is 7" wide. I don't know if you can tell but it is doubled. Although you can't tell from her expression, my dd loves the scarf too, good thing since I almost have hers done, I just have to hand stitch the final part - I believe she may find a few of these under the tree this year! So glad my niece brought this to my attention, what a great way to use up fabric and make quick gifts. This fabric was in my stash! I'm not sure if I will use the remaining 16" X 73" to work up a purse (or two?) or if I will just make two more scarves. I guess we'll see next month! Happy Quilting!
