Cuddle Cake Scarf

Somewhere along my travels, I picked up a Cuddle Cake.  I put it on the shelf with the rest of my Layer Cakes.  Over time, the package split open from falling off the shelf one too many times, and it looked sloppy.

I decided to solve this problem by using the Cuddle Cake.  I made a scarf!

I made it up as I went along.  If you have a Cuddle Cake sitting around, though, and want to make a scarf, here's what I did:

I stitched everything with 1/2" seam allowances.

I sewed two rows of 10 squares together, pinning seams open.

I folded it in half with right sides together to form a long tube.  I pinned seams open and stitched along the edges, keeping one side open for turning.

I turned the scarf right side out and hand-stitched the opening closed.

Then I gave my machine a good cleaning, because Cuddle sheds

Now I have a scarf for me for next winter.  Or maybe for someone else as a gift.  

(ok, probably for me)
