This is my very first post on this blog, so I’ll start off with a little background. I am a stay at home mother to 2 wonderful, energetic boys. It seems like the other day I was reading about them in a magazine and thinking “wow, I need to get in the kitchen!” So here I am.
I’ve been thinking about making silk scarves for a while now, and I’ve just been waiting for the perfect time to do it. A few months ago I got my first sewing machine, and I started looking around mens silk bathrobe for books and patterns. A few weeks ago, while out shopping, I came across these adorable silk scarves at a store called Gap, and I fell in love. I was so excited, and I knew I had to make one for myself!
This is what I have found out so far:
Silk scarves are extremely versatile and can be worn in many different ways. They can be worn with jeans and a t-shirt or a dress, and are also great to wear on a warm day, or even for a little dressy wear. I love how the silk feels against my skin and against my hair. The silk is also breathable and great for those with asthma.
Silk is produced by silkworms, who are just like caterpillars except that they don’t eat leaves, they eat mulberry leaves. The silk is produced in their cocoon, and then is harvested from the cocoon.
So what do you need to make a silk scarf?
Silk scarf patterns are extremely easy to make. You just need:
– a needle
– a yarn needle
– a sewing machine
So far I have only made one silk scarf, but I think I may make a few more this summer.
This is what I used to make my scarf:
I found this pattern on this blog (which I had never seen before). It is absolutely adorable, and the scarf is actually a gift for my best friend. I just had to make it for myself! The pattern is an mens silk bathrobe easy to follow, and the scarf took me about 2 1/2 hours to make.
I highly recommend this pattern, and if you’re thinking about making one, I would definitely try to find a pattern like this. It is very easy to follow, and the pattern has even step by step instructions, so you don’t need any experience.
