I really should not be showing you this yet.
It is a birthday gift for my mom.
I am going to give it to her tonight
I really, really, really am bad at keeping my own secrets!
I really LOVE how it turned out!
I made her a scarf and cardigan set.
(BAHHH!! I am SO pregnant!)
Didn't it turn out cute?!
I followed the instructions for the scarf from mamma says sew's blog.
Mine did not turn out NEAR as ruffly because I did not use very stretchy fabric.
I knew this would be the case,
But I really loved the fabric for my mom
And she is not really a ruffly kinda girl!
I like the understated ruffles.
I got the idea for the cardigan from behind the seam's blog.
It is seriously the EASIEST thing EVER!
I made one for myself a while ago and I love it.
I wore it last night to hang out with some of our friends
and I got so many complements
that we decided
to have a cardigan making party.
The only thing I did different when I made my mom's
was to serge the edges and arm holes.
Her fabric was lighter and I was scared it would not hold
up very well without some help!
This is a FABULOUS Christmas gift idea.
One size fits all.
One yard of fabric.
Definitely a winner in my book!
~Happy gift making!
