nobis opus splendeat: we need more glitter

velveteen & voile…

I finished my mom’s bday present a couple of weekends ago… it’s an infinity or figure-8 scarf. It’s called that because it loops around your neck, half twists, and then loops around your neck again, and spread out it looks like an infinity symbol, or a figure 8. It’s fairly simple to sew, it’s basically just a rectangular tube, but it’s the fabrics that really make this one a home run… Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush in voile and velveteen!

Here it is all folded up. When I finished sewing it, I held it up and was like WOAH, this is way to big and too bulky!!! But I used exactly the same dimensions she did on her website, so I was confident and then tried it on… and it was heaven!

Here it is all looped around. The blue is the velveteen, the grey is the voile… so very very soft! Happy bday mommy! I’ll be sure to try to get a picture with it on her!

You can check out Anna Maria Horner’s website and her figure 8 scarf tutorial HERE! She even has a link to where you can buy the 18″x72″ pre-cuts!
