In just five minutes you can recreate this gorgeous wrap scarf. Wait, it gets better.You only need one yard of linen for this scarf. There is no measuring, no sewing, and hardly any cutting. This really is simplicity at its finest.
I’ve been reserving my yard of IL041 linen in Fog for quite some time now. I’ll be honest, I bought it months ago and still have not done anything with it. Not because I don’t want to, I just love it too much to waste it on just any craft!
Now, obviously I could just as easily ordered more IL041 linen and stopped being so greedy about my one yard. That is actually what I plan to do after this. Really- I need more and in more colors!
I solved this dilemma by letting this project be about the linen and letting the linen do the work. It has a thick, visible weave to it that almost looks net-like or similar to gauze. It stands out from other linen and has a texture that I am absolutely crazy about.
More great news about this craft….IL041 is ON SALE NOW. Yup! The sale is only until this Sunday though, June 3rd, 2012. IL041 sales are rare, so I strongly advise taking advantage of this offer. You will understand my excitement when you feel the texture of this linen for yourself.
This soft shade of linen drapes beautifully and is a great choice for a gorgeous wrap scarf. Let’s get started!
- AT LEAST 1 yard of IL041 linen. I used Fog for my scarf (order 2 yards if you like to wrap your scarf several times over).
- Measuring tape. This isn’t really necessary, but it never hurts to have one around!
I believe, there are times when sewing is not necessary. One of those instances is when you find yourself confronted with a beautiful piece of linen. That is why I just the linen shine on its own in a simple scarf that still stands out from the rest.
Now that I’ve made it clear how much I love working with IL041, we can start cutting. The only thing you need to cut is the thick edge that lines one side of the fabric.
IL041 is on sale RIGHT NOW. Check out the different colors and see for yourself why I was so attached to my linen!
