Scrappy scarves! Is there any trick to the right material so they don't end up stiff?
I am just using cottons. I didn't want them too be too bulky or stiff so I backed them with flannel which seems to do pretty good. They stay but they have some movement to them too.

Research Project Name: Seven Scrappy Scarves
Team: Wordy!!
Brief Description: I know everyone is probably tired of seeing them by now but I really want to have a craft booth for the Christmas season and I need to keep myself motivated. I always wish I had done more during the year and I always say next year I will build up stock but never do. This is the year I plan to actually make it happen. This time around I plan on making seven scarves since I feel like I am getting a little bit faster at them.
 Week 1 - Decide on what scarves I am going to make. Try to mix up the colors (I've been doing a lot of blue) and variety so they are a mix of kitsch and pretty. Start pulling out fabrics and separating so that when I start I am not stopping to pick new fabrics.
 Week 2 - Refine my choices. Start patch working.
 Week 3 - Continue patch working.
 Week 4 - Continue patch working. Cut patchworks into straight scarves. Sew on backing. Top stitch.

 I have been so busy and rushing around. I will comment on all the projects in a bit but I wanted to go ahead and throw a couple in the ring too. I haven't posted any for the month yet and it's already the 14th. Wow. Okay, here goes.

Project Name: Dr Who Scrappy scarf
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I had to go with Dr Who. I know nothing about Sherlock except for the old books. Unless we are talking about where Jude Law played Dr. Watson I am out of the loop. BUT I do like Dr Who. I haven't watch too many but I find them entertaining. I bought some fabric squares to make 5 of these so I have enough left for three more. The first one was a raffle prize and has already been sent out in case someone sees this and thinks I already turned it in once before. Different scarf, same fabrics.

Project Name: Whimsical Birdhouses

Brief Description: My Mom retired two years ago so we like to do little art projects together when we get the time. She was an art teacher at an elementary school so she is really creative. We do the wine and designs as little mindless fluffy fun. I am filling up my laundry room wall with the work we do together there. It's fun and carefree. The laundry room out my house leads out to my garden. Which reminds me of "The Secret Garden" which is British Literature.  Wink  Oh! and it's signed Ted because that is my families nickname for me. My Dad really wanted a boy. LOL!

Research Project Name: 5 Scrappy Scarves

Brief Description: I have been patch working away on these. This time I tried a couple new things. First was the random patch working instead of the blocking I had been doing. I found some random patch worked pieces in my Grandmothers stash that I inherited and pieced a couple of them together into a scarf and that's when I decided to try the random method myself. I think it worked well for the monsters fabric. Second I tried the invisible thread on the top so the seem would not show. That worked great on all of them except the Monster one. For some reason when I got to that one my tensioner got all out of whack and would NOT do it. Huh I was stopping every 3 inches fixing it. In the end I redid the entire top of it in black. Still the tension wasn't quite right but I managed to finish it. I have no idea what went wrong. No idea.

 and my problem child.... monsters.

 I need to make at least two more of this style because I know my friend will like it.

 I was going strong and then I hit a snag, more like my fabric did, and then my schedule was full this weekend. I plan on getting back on the Games prompts tonight. I have two done but I wanted to post most of them together since they sort of go together.

Thanks, gozer! I can't take credit for the fairy door or the mandala. I believe both of those were fashioned by Smeddley.
Fixed that! Thanks.  Tongue

 Crazyda79 - The onsies are adorable! I love the little tie one. So dapper and cute.  Cheesy

Thanks, Gozer!

Now, if only they would reboot Darkwing Duck...!  Let's get dangerous!  Grin
True, true. I liked that one too! That's when cartoons had some quality to them.  Wink

 Cute bag and I too like it better without the bow. It's not too "Old Lady" besides, it all in how you carry it. Wink LOL!
