Baby Scarf 0+
Winter time behind us, I finally decided to show you the scarf I made for my little Ioana. But as the weather isn’t warm yet, she continues to wear it almost every day.
This scarf is extremely easy to make and suitable for your baby from birth. Personally, I couldn’t imagine tightening a classic scarf around the tiny neck of my baby Ioni. Even now, a year later, this scarf seems more comfortable and safe. In addition, it has two faces and can be combined with different coats.
For once, I’m not going to draw a pattern, all you need is just to take a medium-sized bib with scratch of your baby and copy it on an A4 sheet. Then reshape it a bit by shortening the length and sharpening the base (so that it doesn’t really ressemble a bib) and enlarge the back so that it keeps the neck warm.
Cut this pattern and draw it twice on one or two different fabrics. I used fabrics in 2 different colors and types – one cotton flannel and the other thick velvet.
Then, cut the bib drawings leaving 1 cm margin outside the drawing line and put the two cuttings facing each other. Sew them together with a straight stitch covering 95% of the contour. Turn the bib faces outwards. Iron it and finish sewing the remaining 5% by hand, invisibly.
Finally install a button and make a buttonhole on the machine. That’s all!!
