Golden apple scarf

Today's scarf is inspired by this bowl of golden-green apples that I picked from our trees yesterday.

Step 1: Select juicy tidbits of fabric and yarn from the stash. Arrange them between layers of Sulky Solvy in the shape of the scarf. I used the sticky Fabri-Solvy on the bottom and regular non-sticky Solvy on top. The non-sticky layer is cheaper, but it stuck to the bottom layer so I didn't have to pin baste.

Step 3: Sew a grid with yellow and yellow-orange rayon threads.

Step 4: (No photo.) Rinse away the Solvy and squeeze the scarf dry in a towel.

 Step 5: Wrap the apples in their matching scarf.

This is the color of today, all day. This is why I made a YELLOW scarf today.

Have a more colorful day

First off, I love the photo at the bottom! But I can see why you chose the apples as your inspiration instead... lots more color! And a question: how do you care for the scarves? Can they be washed/ironed once you wash out the solvy? I have lots of yarn and fabric stash, but I'm concerned with the durability of the end product. Thanks for sharing the directions!

Judy -- You can hand wash and line dry the scarves. If you iron them, use low heat or a press cloth if they contain delicate fibers. Have fun!
