Sew: Neon Leopard Infinity Scarf
Neon and leopard print aren't words you would usually put together. I now think they're a match made in heaven! Last week on a kid costume scouting mission to Spotlight I spotted this crazy voile while waiting in line. I was being so good at avoiding the dress fabric as I don't need any more fabric. Especially not printed fabric!! But I caved when I saw these lovelies. They feel like cotton voile but clearly state "polyester" on the selvedge. I thought they'd make great summer weight scarves so I picked up two pieces. One for me and one for my Christmas present stash. It is very tempting to keep both!!
I bought two metres for each scarf as I like a decent amount of volume in my scarves. I then just joined the cut ends together with a French seam and turned the selvedges over once to hem the long sides. Voila! New scarves.
I wore it today with my pink Anise jacket to the zoo. It was perfect for keeping the chill off my neck in this ridiculous Melbourne weather.
