'White Christmas'(!) Scarf and Custom Shoelaces

Pinning my knitted scarf to an interlocking foam floor mat...


                                                      ...and stitching the ends together...


                                                           ...to form an infinity scarf!


                                                             My beautiful friend, Susan...


                                        ...modeling the two ways to wear her Christmas scarf! :)


                                           I knitted a long rectangle from synthetic boucle yarn...

                                             ...then stitched it together to form an infinity scarf.

                                 (Although it looks white, it's actually a very pale lavender in color!)

                                               Folding one-and-a-half-inch bias tape in half...


                                                            ...and sewing it together...


                                                     ...to produce custom shoelaces! :)


                                        Following this wonderful video tutorial...

                                     ...I fashioned lengths of continuous bias tape (for a sewing project)...

                                       ...then used the leftover tape to craft custom shoelaces!

                                       Next time: I'll show you the sewing project that started it all. :)
