1. I knitted the background piece. .
2. Next I knitted the “Marilyn” insert for the top. (I wanted to do this all using DAK, but as discussed in my last post my carriage is acting up)
3. I sewed around my insert using my sewing machine and turned under and hand-sewed the raw edges.
4. I hand-sewed the insert piece to the background piece.
The finished piece: Ta Da!
Ok, I don’t have time now to narrate these pictures, but I’ll come back later and finish this post.
|1. Scarf right off the machine, with the back seam sewn|
|2. My totally botched embroidery job.|
|3. Sew a line of stitches above the embroidery.|
|4. Cut off the bottom of the scarf about 1/4" from the stitching|
|5. Repeat the sewing and cutting for the other end of the scarf.|
|6. Latch fringe onto both ends of scarf, being sure to insert the latch tool on the inside of the stitching.|
|7. On the finished scarf you can't even tell it was shortened. The fringe covers the raw edge.|
