Me-Made-June Day 8:

MMJ Day 8:
This was my inspiration for a circular scarf, which came from the TS 14 Plus website.  I am a fan of most of the styles on this plus-sized site, which I often use for inspiration when I make tunics and vests.
I wanted to have some accessories for the MMJ challenge, so used a remnant to make this easy scarf.  The fabric was called a 'vintage' cotton; unfortunately I wouldn't want to use this fabric for a full garment.  It frays for too easily and slips, so it wouldn't be my first choice.  The grey/navy colourway is an ideal match with my thrifted silver grey velvet tunic, which I wore out to the movies. 

I bought this remnant particularly for this purpose, but I'm sure I have got plenty of other remnants in my stash that would serve the purpose just as well.

  1. Gorgeous scarf Grace. I have made a few out of jersey remnants and they are fun to layer on cold days.
