The first project for Finny and Donk's Sewing Adventure was the Button Scarf. After failing to complete most of the projects from the InStitches along, I'm determined to complete all of these projects (and on time too!). This definitely was a very simple project. Like many others, I was not too into the faux fur that the pattern called for. I thought it was too impractical and "fancy" for my taste. Instead, I found some patchwork I had left over from some other scarves I had sewn and used up some of the surplus of fleece I seem to have from Joann's 50% off sale.
After scrounging around looking for my button hole foot, I decided to just give the old zig zag method a try. The buttonhole turned out alright, but the lines are definitely not straight. Thank goodness the button covers them up!
The scarf will definitely be of use. After having a week of very warm weather (nearing 60 degrees), we are now having a string of 20 degree weather. Ick! Where's spring?
