How I Achieved Almost Zero Waste Making a Lilac Wrap Sweater & a Bonus Scarf
I have made many scarves using this method,
in many different fabrics.
This is a soft, fuzzy, poly knit fabric I purchased at Joann's.
I bought it to make a long sweater jacket with my
Lilac Easy Wrap sewing pattern. (I will do a post on this soon)
After cutting out the sweater and this scarf to be,
this is what I had left over!
I did cut out the pattern, and found I had this 15"+ piece left over.
I had already decided to work on the jacket the next day.
But I had some energy left, and I know how important it is to make a little
something for yourself. That helps me to focus on the next project,
when I can give myself some creative time.
The sweater fabric is almost 65" wide.
Generally I like scarves around 80", cause I like to wrap.
But, I checked and knew I could make this work.
The fabric by itself did not need to be lined.
I love being able to edge fabric to finish it.
I use this same technique to finish the top edges of my pockets.
