A PRETTY FLEECE SCARF!

fleece scarf finishedThe Holidays may have come and gone...

but the freezing weather certainly has not left us! 

Almost everyone is experiencing “wintery” days as of late...

and today's project is sure to bring a little warmth on those not so nice moments in time!

Next to wearing a soft pair of Flannel Pajamas...

I gotta say that having a pretty Fleece Scarf runs a close second to being one of my FAVORITES!

Let's get started...

I found this Super Soft Fleece Scarf at my local Walmart...

and they come in several colors, so that gives you more options as to which direction you may want to go with your fabrics!

I have been wanting to use an Appliqued Circle Monogram Font for quite some time now...

and this is the PERFECT project for it!

I decided on the 5 inch size Monogram and placed the bottom of the design 1.5 inches above the area

where the “fringe” starts on the edge of the scarf.  This is really a personal preference...

go with whatever you think looks best for YOU!

I prepped my  7 X 7 inch frame with sticky stabilizer first

and then placed the bottom of my fleece scarf right on the sticky (centering it).

I added a couple of my favorite little red clippies for extra hold! 

Once I have my frame attached to my machine I “floated” a piece of tear away underneath the frame for extra added stability. 

I wanted my backside of my scarf to be almost as pretty as the front side is...

and this stabilizer combination helped me achieve just that!

Here she goes...

As you see in the above picture...I threw a piece of WSS on top...

just before it starts the satin work. 

I know...

It's a SHOCKER!

My fabric choice is a really pretty piece of orange cotton batik...

I really love the way this particular fabric cuts so crisply

when I am trimming the letters after the tack down stage. 

If you have never used a cotton batik for your applique panels...

be sure to give it a try...you will simply love it! 

And before you ask...

YES...

I still prep the cotton batik fabrics with Heat and Bond Lite on the backside,

just like I do with regular cottons.

Designs Stats...

Overall Size-5” wide X 4 7/8” tall

Stitch Count-11,826

Now...

When I got to the triple bean stitch (which is the back and forth straight stitch on TOP of the satin work)...

I went with the same color orange thread as I used for the satin work. 

I really LOVE the way it gives dimension to my letter...

Without it being a “contrast” in color!

How about YOU?

Now...

Isn't she Beautiful?

And...

Just because I know you all want to see the backside of the scarf...

Here's a close-up...

Because I used the Floriani Brand of Sticky Stabilizer...

a simple spritz of water allowed me to remove every bit of it...

and the tear away came off easy too!

And...

since I used the same orange thread for the triple bean stitch...

you do not see any pops of a second color on the backside either!

Now...

That's what I call a PLAN!
