Patricia Infinity Cowl Tutorial & an Art Gallery Fabrics Giveaway!

Monday, December 31, 2012


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!

  13. You know how sometimes you see a certain pattern made with a certain fabric, and it is just total and complete utter perfection? And you cannot fathom making that pattern with any other fabric because what you have seen is Just.Too.Perfect. and you know that nothing in this world that has ever been created or could ever be created that would come even close to duplicating the feeling that you get when you look at that completed object? That, for me, is this inifity scarf in this perfectly delightful Rock N'Romance fabric. I am crossing my fingers and toes and squeezing them extra tight and hope hope hoping that I might be the lucky winner. Because I need this scarf in my life, STAT!

    Thank you for sharing this project. I adore it. Happy new year to you! (PS, I subscribe to the AGF blog, follow them on twitter, and like them on facebook!)

  112. I am a relatively new sewer. I made this following the pattern explicitly, and when I turn it right side out through the 4" opening, it becomes a short cyclinder! I have no clue as to why this is. I even consulted other sewers, and they can't figure it out either. I sewed the "tube" together, ws with the right sides "kissing" as you've said. I don't get it

    1. Lisa - could you please email me at luvinthemommyhood@yahoo.ca? Your profile has no link or info so I cannot contact you. I'd like to help explain it to you. It really is a simple process but one that is really tricky to figure out sometimes. If you email me I can work with you to try to figure out where you are stuck.

      Thanks so much!
