Today I'm sharing a tutorial for an embroidered corduroy scarf I designed for Coats and Clark. You can find the entire pattern and step-by-step directions with photos on the Coats blog here.
I used two prints from Denyse Schmidt's new line of corduroy from her Chicopee collection for FreeSpirit fabrics. It's a fine wale corduroy and it is amazingly soft with a great hand and drape. The scarf is really simple to construct and if you look closely you can see that I added some hand embroidery stitches, using the design of the print on the fabric as a guide.
I used Coats Dual Duty Craft & Button thread for the embroidery in coordinating colors and I really love the result. The thread is really thick and has a beautiful sheen that gives the finished scarf a lot of texture. And now, of course, I want to make a quilt out of corduroy with some hand stitching with the Craft & Button thread. One day!
