It might still be warm outside, but cooler temperatures are coming and we’ve got the perfect project this week for those in-between days. Our national educator, Teresa Coates, will be making the Cuddle® Pocket Scarf, a beginner-friendly project for adults (with modifications for children).
The new Cuddle® Pocket Scarf pattern was designed to keep your neck and your hands warm at the same time, using simple construction methods and a yard of fabric. If you’re new to sewing Luxe Cuddle®, it’s a great place to start. Teresa will show you how to measure your pieces, cut it all with less mess and sew it from start to finish.
Join us on Tuesday, August 29 at 10am Pacific and learn how to make this new pattern, then you’ll want to find yourself some Luxe Cuddle® and make a few for yourself and your loved ones.
You can download the pattern from the Free Patterns section of our website. Teresa recommends using a 10-15mm Luxe Cuddle® such as Hide, Galaxy, Heather or Glacier to get started. She’ll share tips on using some of the thicker fabrics on the show!
