Patches of cotton backed by a single piece of fleece. I recommend keeping the patches small, or at least skinny. The original inspiration was seeing a scarf patched from recycled sweaters. I don’t know how to serge on my machine or do much more than sew with easy fabrics, so I thought of going this route. I like the results in a way, but I want to add more to the scarf so that it’s not so simple. Right now it’s just a comfy, laze-around-the-house or go-for-coffee scarf. I am thinking of maybe adding a patch of lace here or there, or finding a gold thread to do some embellishment, like quilting. I thought of also doing a blanket stitch, but I’m afraid that would turn out way too Country Living.
