This 5 minute Scarf Tutorial is a great quick and easy sewing project. The scarf is perfect for both boys and girls!
I love sewing things for my daughter, and I actually feel a bit guilty that I don’t sew more for my son too. He’s still young enough to be willing to wear something I made and participate in getting his photo taken. It can just be so difficult to come up with fun (and simple) projects a 10 year old would like. (See a few things I’ve made for him here.)
I do try to include him in some of the photo sessions the lil’ Missy does, but when you put those two together- they bicker like crazy! Almost every shot is unuseable because someone is frowning, has a dirty look on there face or is crying. No matter how much I pay or what I offer- they just can’t seem to go more than a few minutes without one annoying the other. Even more amazing is that they can even annoy each other with just their eyes! (Luckily, I m a pro at head swapping in photos.)
Anyway… Back to the subject of these scarves. It’s been darn cold in the mornings lately and I feel bad sending my guys out to wait for the bus. I bundle them up as much as I can, and I realized recently, my son does not have any scarves to keep his little neck warm!
I knew I could remedy that in a flash and it would also give us a chance for a little one on one photo time.
I ended up making 2 scarves. One from a bit of fleece in my stash and one from a ribbed pullover from my hubbys recycle pile. (We recently went through his closet and discarded about 25 sweaters and tops that looked like a tent on him. They are destined for the Salvation Army, but I might need to save a few for me, ha ha!)
These scarves took all of 5 minutes to make!
