Handmade Christmas 2011: “Scrap Wrap” for Nikki

I made this “Scrap Wrap” for my sister-in-law, Nikki.  Again, I used a variety of fabrics, including the same light gray and black/white wools and black corduroy as in my mom’s scarf.   I also used a raspberry wool sweater, which was my favorite sweater for many years – so much my favorite that I wore holes in it.  So it too has taken on a second life in Nikki’s scarf!

I lined Nikki’s scarf with quilter’s weight flannel (from Joann’s).

As you may have noticed in the pictures of both these scarves, the scarf is actually pieced in three sections: a long middle section and two shorter end sections.  I like how this adds interest to the scarf’s design.  Now I need to make one of these for myself!
