Scarfidy Do Dah

If you hang around my sewing room too long you're going to get embroidered.  There's just no way around it.  This flannel fabric has been hanging around my sewing room for quite some time (so I had to embroider it) was too bright for a shirt and there wasn't enough fabric for PJ pants and I saw this outfit on pinterest and the scarf idea was born.

It's difficult at times to find simple, modern embroidery designs but after some surfing I found Modern Embroidery Geek on Etsy and this beautiful Modern Thailand Flower design.  Isn't she pretty? 

I cut two pieces of flannel 12" by 64" and embroidered on one end of one of the panels.  The flower design came in two sizes, I embroidered the larger twice and resized it to 80% and stitched it out twice again using different combinations of hot pink, coral and turquoise embroidery thread.  When I was finished with the embroidery I stitched the remaining panel to the embroidered panel (right sides together) all the way around, leaving an opening to turn.  Viola!  She is done!
