Teagarden Twist - Striped Tube Scarf

One of the bloggers I follow is Jane, of Lucky Sew and Sew. Last month, Jane made a top with a twist, a "tube scarf". (Click either picture to see her blog post.)

I loved it!

I decided to try my own version, using the Teagarden T. Mine is fun, but Jane's is more versatile. I may have to try this technique again. :)

  7. Definitely a technique I will try soon, did you follow Jane's instructions, or detour your own route???

    1. You know, I didn't recollect that she used instructions. I used her pics as inspiration and went my own route.

  8. Very nice indeed! I just spent $30 on a Carucci & Rucinni Jewellery Scarf. Wish I had seen this first - add a few baubles and it could be a jewellery scarf too. I will have to try this.

    1. I've never heard of that, BeaJay, so I googled. Very cute! And, yes, this could definitely be a DIY project.

  10. Wow, Shams, you don't let any grass grow under your feet in the sewing room. Love your black and white with that pop of color...good drama for your fun personality. Thanks for the link as well. I feel like a summer stock actor who just made Broadway by appearing on your blog.

  12. So cute! Your stripes and green really zing. Go shams! I've been working on getting the teagarden to fit--1 failure and 1 almost right so far. Also trying to enlarge Simplicity 2181 view A--similar troubles.
