Spring Circle Scarf

While visiting the Kawaii Nunohaku craft fair last month I bought two small pieces of fabric from a Kamakura-based shop owner. The fabric was a beautiful pairing and I knew right away that I wanted to use them in a scarf.

A beautiful pairing.I know nothing about these fabrics except that the colorful one is incredibly soft and light, is screen or maybe woodblock printed, and the other is linen. It might be hand-printed, too. I decided to make a circle scarf like the one I saw on Miss Matatabi’s site. I cut each piece into two 12″ by 30″ rectangles and sewed the short ends together. Following the directions here, I sewed the two fabrics together along their long edges then turned the scarf right-side-out, hiding the seams and pressing it crisp. I joined the remaining short ends and finished it with hand-stitching.

A spring circle scarf. I’m really pleased.

  1. Hi Angela

    Great blog and product, I love the kit I bought from you.

    Can you please let me know the address of the Kamakura fabric shop where the fabric is from? Seems to be called Kiginikki? I want to visit Kamakura when I am in Japan in June, and thought I might check out that shop and also the Swany store that Novita wrote about on her blog.

    Thanks for your help!

    Michelle
