It's Fat Quarter Gang time over on Art Gallery Fabrics today and I'm going to show you all how to make the Patricia Infinity Cowl using only 6 fat quarters! Woot woot! It's a great beginner project to practice piecing and working in 3 dimensional forms. I love making things that have multiple looks and living on the West Coast of BC in Canada means I wear a lot of cowls and layers. The Patricia Cowl doesn't disappoint. With the option to have 3 prints/solids per side you can have a total of 6 different fabrics to show off! Hello! Fun!!!!!!!! It's warm, huge, and perfect with your fave jacket but could also easily be worn with a tee in the warmer months for some added flair!
Wear it single looped or double it up (my fave) the Patricia Infinity Cowl is sure to be your new fave accessory this winter.You can easily change up your fabrics by turning the cowl inside out and bam! - you have a whole new look!
When choosing my fabrics for my latest Fat Quarter Gang project I could not resist the lure of Pat Bravo's Rock N' Romance line. I'm a gemini and love the play on soft and hard for this line. It appeals to both parts of my personality. And since I'm always changing my mind about what color or vibe I want to wear this suits me perfectly. I also think this cowl would be equally as fabulous in some bright solids. That's next up on my list. Art Gallery Fabrics (along with gorgeous prints) makes some awesome color palettes of solids and who can resist that darn pima cotton! The drape and softness is so amazing!
So go pick your fave new fabric crushes and let's get sewing your newest fave accessory! Head on over to Art Gallery Fabrics for the whole tutorial in an easy downloadable PDF :) Perfect for that real last minute gift (this takes literally about 30-45mins from start to finish) or for some selfish sewing after the holidays. Go on....spoil yourself...you deserve it!
