This pattern does not contain any pattern pieces, it is created using measurements provided.
This is the 2nd pattern to join my EMKIE LITE pattern range, this range is all about being more affordable while not skimping on quality. More patterns will be added to this new range in 2017 alongside my regular pattern range. The EMKIE LITE range is for beginner bag/accessory makers or for small business owners who sew to sell and need to have really quick & easy patterns to make (that are still gorgeous and look fabulous).
The Cozy For Eternity Scarf+Cuff pattern allows you to create the perfect scarf that can be used the whole year round! Make the scarf in light/medium woven fabrics like voile, poplin, quilting cotton or even knits for the perfect accessory. This would not be a true Emkie Designs Pattern without some flair…and with 6 Cuff options (in 5 styles) there is plenty of flair included in this versatile pattern that has the perfect accessory option whatever your mood! The cuffs are removable and a great finishing touch to the Cozy for Eternity Scarf (or even another scarf in your closet). Even better, because this Scarf + Cuff pattern is a quick sew, it is the perfect gift to make for all your friends!

Skill level: Confident Beginner
• Please read all directions before beginning.
• The seam allowance is 3/8” (1cm) unless otherwise stated, and has been included in the pattern pieces.
• Be sure to backstitch at the beginning and end of all stitching unless otherwise stated.
• All pattern pieces should be cut to the measurements provided in the cutting guide (page 5).
• Important things to note when working with leather.
◦ Never use pins, be sure to use clips instead.
◦ Be sure to use a leather needle.
◦ Be sure to use a 40 to 60 weight bonded nylon thread or a 100% polyester thread.
◦ Be sure to use a walking foot, roller foot or teflon foot on your sewing machine.
◦ Lengthen your stitch length when topstitching, it ensures a neater more professional look.
◦ Check on scrap piece of leather first that is the same thickness as what you will be sewing, (ie interfaced etc.) and use that to work out the tension needed for the project. Many domestic machines will not cope with the thickness of some leathers, testing on a scrap piece of leather will come in handy to find this out too.
• Extra important things to note when working with faux leather, the above leather tips should be adhered to, plus…
◦ Be sure to use low heat and pressing cloth if fusing to faux leather.
