Fall Patchwork Scarf

Check out Twice Remembered's link up with projects that people made themselves.
Be sure to check out more projects at A Soft Place to Land.


I was in the mood to make something today so I made a fall scarf. I am in love. It was so easy! I won someone's scraps off a blog last year and it had the owl fabric in it. I am so in love with that fabric! The rest I bought from a friend that was selling off her fabric.


This shows the fabric I lined it with. I cut 15- 5" squares. I measured that against my green scarf that I love and decided on the length of my green scarf. I just cut a 5" strip of the backing fabric. I had to piece two of them together. Then I pinned it to the front and cut off the excess.



I have had this orange shirt for a few years. It is a medium and I am an extra large so it doesn't fit. I cut the back of this fabric for extra squares for my scarf. Don't forget to look at sheets, pillowcases, old clothing, and other items for fabric. I cut out another scarf that I am making. I am using the pillow sham that I had from the camper and a nubby fabric baby quilt I bought at a garage sale.

Very nice! Fall must be in the air - I made chili for dinner last night and then baked 3 loaves of pumpkin bread today. Getting all the fall decor out of the attic this evening!

(Any results from all of your tests that you can share? Still praying...)

Pumpkin bread sounds good!
I will be having the endoscopic ultrasound and biopsy tomorrow morning. The results of the biopsy are to be back on Monday. Thank you for praying. I am not sure if I am really ready for the news. I think I am prepared for whatever, but I don't think we can ever know how things will hit us.

You did a fabulous job on that scarf! What a great idea to reuse fabrics from clothing, pillowcases, etc. !
