Make a quick, lightweight cotton scarf
This scarf started as a way to use up some fabrics from my extensive stash. I design my own fabric, but still like to collect other people’s designs as well!
I used three pieces of fabric. The patterned Japanese piece was a small fat quarter, I had a slightly larger amount of the grey and a bigger piece of the pink. When choosing your fabrics you just need to ensure that each one is at least 45cm wide and that the total length of all of them put together is 2 metres (plus seam allowances - I added 1.5cm to each edge).
You'll also need a sewing machine, thread, pins, hand sewing needle and an iron. The scarf took me less than an hour to make so you can always run one up in the morning to wear out in the afternoon!
