A knit Scout is
c. fucking awesome!
d. all of the above!!
It’s safe to say that I LOVE IT!! In fact, I’ll be wearing it to work tomorrow ;o)
Don’t worry, it was worn for about twenty minutes to snap pictures. My little daughter is now the official photographer of the family! These are damn good pics for a 6 1/2 year-old!
I made this little headband/scarf/thing-y out of a scrap of fabric leftover from my Hummingbird! It was a sewing with stripes kind of night.
I’m so jazzed that the sew-along was such a success!! And I’ve been so inspired by all of the variations there! Dresses, two-toned, petal front, embroidered, lace, pleated! My neckline treatment was inspired by a version posted, there. It’s a teeny roll neck applied with Jen’s flat binding method.
I left it un-hemmed because this fabric distorts like a sonofabitch. It behaved everywhere except the sleeve hems which I took in a bit after the fact. I ran a line of basting stitches about 1/2 from the hemline to (hopefully) discourage any unraveling, there. I cut this version using the same modified pattern I created for the Sunshine-y Scout tunic. This fabric was so wide, I might have enough for another cropped version, too!
Will I ever get tired of making Scouts?? The sewcialist world wants to know!
