The weather turned cool here this week just in time for back-to-school. I sent Anabelle off to her first day of 3rd grade yesterday, and now I have a little time to start thinking about fall sewing. One of the the most popular projects we’ve done here in the studio is our Patchwork Infinity Scarf, and Mindy stitched one up in our Journey Lawns last week. The fabric is delicate and lightweight, making it the perfect layer to add a bit of warmth and pattern to early fall outfits. You can get the free pattern for the project here ( just print or save as a pdf), and you can buy a 1/3 yard bundle of the Journey Organic Cotton Lawns (enough to make 2 scarves!) on the website here.

Journey Patchwork Infinity Scarf by Monaluna

Journey Organic Cotton Lawn Bundle

If you end up with some fabric left over, we have another idea for you: you can make this gorgeous patchwork pillow, based on May Chappell’s All Strung Up quilt pattern. Although it can be made with poplin or any quilting cotton, it’s especially nice in lawn, which makes it a bit softer and lighter.
