Frolic Head Scarves
When my friends at Birch Fabrics sent me some of Rebekah Ginda's Frolic collection, my daughters fell completely in love. These colorful prints seem destined for children's clothing and accessories, so I decided to turn the little stack of fabric into head scarves for my girls.
I recently used an Amazon gift card that I got for Christmas to buy a few new sewing books, including the newly revised Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. This book is such a pleasure to read -- I just love the photos and illustrations on every page. Her pattern for Jane's Head Scarf is a perfect choice when you're looking for a quick finish. It took me all of an hour to make three scarves -- even with the endless interruptions that come with a busy household.
I changed the measurements slightly for each girl to insure a snug -- but not too snug -- fit. The pattern came together very easily, and we were all delighted with the results.
Frolic is a darling collection, but if I had to pick a favorite print, it would be Tulip Toss.
Those sweet little flowers just feel like a breath of spring.
