A Mother's Day Scarf

Hey - I actually sewed something as a gift for someone! I know you people are always making clothes as gifts for other people, but I don't usually do that kind of thing. However, my MIL is going to Niagara Falls in a few weeks and I thought I'd give her an infinity scarf in case it's chilly. (Well, it's probably not chilly, but I thought it'd make a nice Mother's Day gift for her since she wears scarves every day.)

I made this one about 10" wide and 58" long, and this is a drapey knit that feels like thick pantyhose. Took about 15 minutes to make, including watching the tutorial again to get the dimensions.
I hope I didn't make it too long for her, given that she's just over 5 feet tall.
I'll try to get a picture of her wearing it, since she's much better at showcasing scarves than I am.

And may I just say how SHOCKED I am that Lisa Lampanelli got fired last night?! Theresa was expected, but what a twist that they did those interviews and fired some more. I think Clay or Arsenio will be the next one fired, but I really wish it would be Aubrey. If she wins this thing despite being the most narcissistic person I've ever seen, I will scream....after texting my sister.

That's way cute! I need to make a few of those... But I'm way less altruistic than you.
I thought of you this morning as I cut out my first (Can you believe it??) Sandra Betzina pattern. :) We'll see how it goes...

Junior - I removed your duplicate comment, but now it looks like you said something awful! And yes - do you want the same fabric? I have more!

KID - I'm coming to comment on your pants - I'm so excited for you!

Love the scarf! The cruise ship experience wasn't as exhilarating for me as it was for those passengers who were eagerly trying to capture it on their cell phone cameras :)

We should get together soon to chat about sewing!

Also meant to say, still dealing with the Three Stooges, can't wait till this job is OVER! AND, I made two blouses from my Sandra Betzina muslin from last year.

The jeans muslin fit pretty good (I thought it was too tight but Sandra didn't) until I washed and dried it 2X before hemming. Now it fits my skinny daughters, both of whom wear a 4 Tall, even though I washed and dried the fabric 3X before cutting and sewing. Glad I didn't do all the top stitching!
