Enthusiastic sewers accumulate lots of fabric scraps in various colors and sizes in their stash. Don’t throw them away as they can be made use of in various easy projects.
The cheerful scarf is sewn from scraps of velour knit and striped jersey. Really easy to make, it is also perfect as a child’s first sewing project!
Preshrink the knits before starting by washing. Choose scraps in delicious autumn colors or go for a black and white combination. The pattern for this scarf fits a child aged 4–12 but the pattern pieces can easily be made longer and wider for an adult’s scarf.
Cord pants from OTTOBRE design 4/2010 in sizes 110-146 cm and T-shirt from Creative Workshop 301 in sizes 92-170 cm.
