I seriously love all those silhouette crafts but couldn't think of anything to do then I made Elizabeth the Silhouette Toiletry Bag and she loved it. All the girls on camp apparently wanted one and she was thrilled and said what else can you make? Challenge accepted but I had no idea. Then when I was making my Easiest Patchwork Blanket I had a piece of minkee left over that was just the right size for a scarf.
Wanna make one?
Minkee or is it Minkey? I don't know! Cut to desired size
Cotton Fabric cut same as minkee
Sizzix Big Shot (Optional)
A picture of your kid, side on profile
General sewing supplies
Sew minkee and fabric together, right sides facing and leave a gap to turn right way out. The close gap and topstitch all the way around.
Using the photo trace around the head onto the Heat'n Bond Ultra Hold Iron-On Adhesive. I used Ultra because you don't have to sew it. I would wash it on gentle cycle or in a pillow case but seriously now fiddly sewing, oh YEAH!!!
Grab your Sizzix Big Shot and cut out your letters using your Lifestyle Crafts Jump Rope 4-Inch by 4-Inch Alphabet Die. You could also embroider the name.
Iron it on your scarf.
Bob's your uncle one silhouette scarf! Bob in fact was my grandfather so that's a really stupid saying!
DIY Delight or Disaster? Umm me likey!! It's such a fun and simple thing to do but a huge impact and she loved it. Her friends want me to make them one. I think you could even buy a scarf if you're not keen on making one and do it with some tween girls as a craft night. Or they could put their head on one side and their BFF on the other. Although knowing girls that could be a dumb move, they tend to argue. On the whole I am calling this one a delight.
I know I am already a million times behind on the silhouette thing but is it truly over, or am I bringing it back like Justin Timberlake brought sexy back?? Either way I like it!
