Little Things to Sew: No-Tie Scarf

I've had a hard time getting around to posting about projects lately, so I'll be doing some catching up over the next days/weeks. The most recent project finished is a sweet little No-Tie Scarf from Oliver+S Little Things to Sew. 

The print side is Dena Designs McKenzie (also seen in her very purple Ice Cream Dress) and the strips are assorted purples from my stash -- there's another McKenzie print also in the dress, a ladybug print from Mo Bedell's Party Dress line I used originally in a Music Class shirt, the daisy print from Central Park that I used to bind my Suduko quilt, a dotty print I used for one side of her hooded cape, and a few other random fabrics. The reverse side of the scarf is a sweet pink felted wool from a thrift store sweater. I had to piece it together a bit, but it is super soft.

This scarf is especially for my purple-loving little girl. She hasn't been feeling well for a long while, and is often cold. As soon as I showed it to her she put it on, and hasn't taken it off. She even slept with it (but I made her unloop it). She wanted me to take a picture of her wearing it even though she's battling pneumonia, round 2.

Last month the sew-along over at A Little Grey was the cute play town, but the scarf was calling to be made instead. Head over there and peek at all the other great Little Things To Sew that have been made recently!


  1. That looks like a great scarf! I may have to put that on my to-do list, too. I love seeing your little model cozied up in it. I hope she gets better soon!

  2. Great job. I heard that pretty scarves make you feel better.

  3. How sweet that it made your sickly girl so happy! She looks adorable.

  4. It fits very well to your smiling daughter! Best recovery wishes to her!
