Sometimes it's fun to not worry about learning a whole new project; instead, why not take a fave design and simply twist it into a new look. In other words: Re-imagine & Renovate! The fabric you choose for a project can transform cute and quirky into sleek and stylish... girlie-girl flirty and floral can become masculine bold and modern. Today's simple scarf was originally a dramatic gypsy style with two different coordinating fabrics front and back. Our new version is still reversible, but the look is toned down and lightened up. It's the perfect spring accessory for our S4H model, Gerd, who, on just her third day in the USA from Denmark, was a very good sport about being photographed to become "a famous internet celebrity." Thanks, Gerd! Have fun on the rest of your travels!
Our thanks to Fat Quarter Shop for co-sponsoring the series and providing the fabric for today's Re-imagine & Renovate project.
We'd be willing to bet that the friendly folks at Fat Quarter Shop love fabric even more than we do (it'd be neck-and-neck though!). Not only do they carry a great selection of pre-cuts, yardage, patterns and more; they always seem to get and promote the newest, latest, trendiest fabrics so early! If you're looking for quality designer fabrics for quilting and more, head to Fat Quarter Shop.
Our scarf is designed to coordinate with yesterday's craft apron. The fabric is Indigo Magic Beans from the Pezzy Prints collection by American Jane for Moda Fabrics, provided by Fat Quarter Shop.
