The Brigitte Scarf

the brigitte scarfSo after a great week and a half with my parents and nearly two weeks away from the sewing machine, I was ready to get back!  I wanted to dive into my new book, “Love At First Stitch,” first thing and that is exactly what I did.

The first project in the book is this lovely scarf, called the Brigitte Scarf.

Now mind you, I really am not much of a hair scarf kinda gal.  I use to buy all kinds of headbands and things back in the day and I rarely used them.  So I didn’t really want to spend money on new fabric as I wasn’t sure how much I would actually use this so I just used some left over material I had from another project.  This material is a tad stiffer for this scarf than I would have liked, but it still works ok.

Also, this project starts you out with just getting familiar with the machine and learning to stitch, and I am already familiar with these things.  However, I really wanted to do each project in this book in order because well…I’m kinda a nerd that way.  I like doing things in the order they are designed.  So instead of skipping ahead, I decided to make this scarf.

I also followed the instructions in the book and practiced stitching a little before I started to make the scarf.  I found that was actually really helpful for me as I got to get more practice with curved lines, which really helped me to understand how to make that work better.

Well, it was a quick and easy project.  I learned new things and I am actually really liking this scarf.  Maybe I will get more use out of it than I think.

Next up….PJ’s!
