1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Novelty Hoody scarf with mittens on: January 10, 2013 12:22:59 PM
Hi every body am hoping somebody can help with this. I am looking for a pattern for a scarf which is like a hat with long side pieces with pocketlike mittens on the end.They are usually made with fleece or Fake Fur and resemble animals and monsters with ears etc.I have Googled every combination I can but cant find a pattern free or for sale.I dont have a pic to show what they look like but have seen a lot of kids wearing them

hi there
these are made with seed beads and wire.the larger ones have a frame of thicker wire and seed beads are strung on thinner wire and wound onto the frame.they are sold on the street where I come from.there is no stitching involved and I have not seen patterns on the Web yet so you will have to use your imagination.try and Google wire beaded animals or try South African beaded curios/insects/animals.Good Luck

There are literally hundreds of sites that offer free patterns and tutorials- just google - free bead or beadwork or beading patterns/tutorials thats how I found craftster - I taught myself to bead from the internet and it was all FREE!

FMG sent me a FREE catalogue all the way to SA and I Think that is NEAT.I dont order direct but my sister lives in TX and she orders stuff for me which I am quite happy with.I get beads and findings that are not easy to find here and which cost a lot less even with postage-I send her stuff she wants from home in exchange.

I would use velcro cos metal might cause the felt tn tear and it would look neater

I will try and explain how I did it.Fold and pinch fabric along seamline-I use my fingernail to make the crease.Then I anchor the thread and bring it up through the crease line-its now on the outside-then I catch the opposite side with a tiny stitch and push the needle down through the foldline then bring it up abt 2mm then catch the opp.side.Its like going from side to side but only the tiny stitch is on the outside the rest is under the fold.I hope it helps.I am not good at explaining stuff

Thanks for the starch tip Aislynn but the ribbon I must use.I was only going to buy 10m of it but ended up buying the whole roll cos it was on sale!I have to blame craftster for that-I am a beader but have been working my way through the forums and have crafting fever!

I have a large piece of good quality fleece which I want to edge with satin ribbon.I am experienced with sewiing but it is taking forever to baste the ribbon on before I sew.I have folded the ribbon in half and pressed it.Does anyone have a tip or way to do it faster?I am losing patience fast here.
