The Skinny on my Charm Square Scarf
Last night, I made my March Across The Pond Sew Along project.
It is the Charm Square Scarf . (Amanda's pick this month.)
|From Moda Bake Shop Trish's charm square scarf|
Trish , of Notes of Sincerity, made this pattern, and it was featured as a recipe in the Moda Bake Shop. (go over there to see all of the free patterns for projects!)
Amanda, The Patchsmith, and Amy , Amy Made That!, and I have each made our own charms scarf.

I followed the pattern for the most part.
I did adapt the width of my scarf, by cutting the charms in half. Therefore, each charm was now 2 1/2 inch wide x 5 inches tall for my scarf.
I sewed two together for each row , making the width a total of 4 1/2 inches now. (The original pattern calls for 9 1/2 inches.)
After I figured out the new dimensions of the scarf, I just had to choose my fabrics.
I wanted the colors to be light and spring-like, and I love pink and yellow!
I dug around in my stash, and found the perfect thing to use.
My sister, Amy, had given me some charm packs called Spring Pastel. (It didn't say what company made them.) I have saved them for "just the right project." I then used some Moda- Lucy's Crab Shack Daisies Blossom Pink for my backing fabric. (I didn't want to use flannel, like the pattern calls for.)
