Flannel Scarf 1 BLOG

Ever‌ ‌since‌ ‌we‌ ‌received‌ ‌our‌ ‌Flannel‌ ‌fabric‌ ‌here‌ ‌at‌ ‌AGF,‌ ‌I’ve‌ ‌been‌ ‌fascinated‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌material‌ ‌and‌ ‌brainstorming‌ ‌all‌ ‌sorts‌ ‌of‌ ‌projects‌ ‌that‌ ‌can‌ ‌be‌ ‌created‌ ‌with‌ ‌it!‌ ‌ ‌

I’ve‌ ‌been‌ ‌wanting‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌a‌ ‌long‌ ‌scarf‌ ‌for‌ ‌a‌ ‌while‌ ‌and‌ ‌what‌ ‌a‌ ‌better‌ ‌way‌ ‌to‌ ‌use‌ ‌our‌ ‌new‌ ‌Flannel‌ ‌substrate‌ ‌since‌ ‌it’s‌ ‌extra‌ ‌soft‌ ‌and‌ ‌cozy.‌ ‌ ‌

In‌ ‌this‌ ‌tutorial,‌ ‌I’m‌ ‌going‌ ‌to‌ ‌show‌ ‌you‌ ‌how‌ ‌to‌ ‌make‌ ‌a‌ ‌flannel‌ ‌scarf‌ ‌with‌ ‌fringes.‌ ‌It‌ ‌was‌ ‌fun‌ ‌experimenting‌ ‌with‌ ‌this‌ ‌fringe‌ ‌as‌ ‌I‌ ‌pulled‌ ‌each‌ ‌thread‌ ‌one‌ ‌at‌ ‌a‌ ‌time,‌ ‌but‌ ‌just‌ ‌take‌ ‌your‌ ‌time‌ ‌and‌ ‌enjoy‌ ‌the ...

Opa! from The Snarky Quilter

Andina_banner

I don't even know where to begin on this blog post because my excitement for today's collection release is more than what I can express in words! As someone who is from Peru, this collection means a lot more to me as it has a lot of prints that represent who I am and where I come from. As soon as I saw “Andina” in the works and why, my heart skipped a beat. Andina was inspired by the Andes culture, which takes a few elements from several countries on the western side of South America like their ...

Hello Makers,

I was inspired by all the puffy accessories being created that I thought it would be a great idea to create my ...
