It was selfish sewing week a couple weeks ago, so I used that as an excuse to finally get around to making myself a fun infinity scarf. I used a great linen blend Japanese print fabric, backed with a teal knit, finishing the look with some vintage pom pom trim.
I absolutely love how it came out. The foxes make me super happy.
It was great to be able to pair up some of my stash fabric and trims with this beautiful foxy linen. I like it so much, I’ll probably give it another go with a more scrappy version soon.

Good job!! Foxes, you know, are magical beings in Japan. A lot of their shape-shifter stories are about fox spirits.
Your beautiful scarf makes my sewing this week sing pretty small. Remember that book cover I made from jeans? Well the rest of the legs went to make a draft-stopper for the door at church (which is actually in a garage). It needed to be 6 ft long, and took about 6 kg of acquarium gravel to fill! There’s quite a gap under the door, which lets in dirt and leaves along with the draft.
DH actually asked me to make a draft-stopper for our apartment when he saw it–first time he’s ever actually asked me to make something!
First, you are always full of such interesting information. Second, that draft stopper doesn’t sound like a small project at all. I’m glad you were able to find a use for the rest of your scraps. And it’s awesome that your hubby actually asked you to make something. The only thing my husband every asks for are patches in his pants.
Great job on your scarf – it’s beautiful!
Thanks so much Maureen. I love a quick finish.
