Either last year or the fall before, Martha Stewart had a project in her Good Things section that was a sewn scarf. I tore out the page, put it up on my wall, and have looked at it ever since as a wish-list project. Being in school, I didn't think I would have time to make some handmade gifts for Christmas this year, but I found some time after the semester was over.
Here are Martha's instructions for the project. As you will see, I took some liberties. It was a quick project: fabric on one side and fleece on the other. My mom said that hers was even a little too warm, but I think she will be able to stand it, since she keeps her house at a balmy 60 degrees or so.
I made six scarves total - two with each fabric (see the post below for the three fabrics I used).

It's that time of year again, when I'm either busy making Christmas gifts, baked goods, etc., or feeling guilty about NOT doing those things. So today I made a trip to The Needle Shop with my friend Brittany, where I fell off the hoarder wagon once again. Here's what I bought:
Bright Boy Elephant Fabric by Robert Kaufman
Bird Stripe (Green) by Echino
and Camera (Cyan) by Echino
Kenyan Tea Leaf by Alexander Henry
and Outside Oslo, Skiff by Jessica Jones
