patterns for accessories

Are you looking for a project to use up all those leftover and odd sized bits of fabric in your stash?

Do you need to sew up a pile of handmade gifts in the next few weeks?!

Looking for the perfect project where you don’t have to worry about sizing and that works for men and women?

In the past I’ve answered yes to all those questions and over time the Rutland Collection has evolved!

I’ve put together 5 quick, easy and thrifty projects for accessories that are really wearable, unisex and very giftable. (Be warned though, you will want to make some for yourself too!)

The Rutland Collection E-book is available to download now for just £3.50. Get yours here.

Projects included are:

Infinity scarf

Look at these beauties that have been made at my recent scarf making classes!


how to make a snood

Perfect for chilly walks or if you don’t like big bulky scarves.

alice band / headband

Make it plain or with a twist, which as you can see, works really well in a stripe!

I’ve included instructions for how to adjust the cutting sizes for the Alice band to make them for kids.

wrist warmers

These wrist warmers and the Alice band / headband project will make swift work of using up your odd little scraps of jersey. I’m planning loads more of these in multiple fabric leftovers.

In this project I’ve also included instructions for how and where to adjust the cutting sizes to make wrist warmers for kids too.

waist warmer!

May your kidneys never be chilled again!! Perfect if you need that little bit of extra length adding to a top or extra bit of cosy warmth around your lower back. Like the Alice band you can make this one plain or with a twist.

I’ve really enjoyed putting the Rutland Collection together, I love a thrifty project that makes good use of my fabrics and is also a really functional make.  I hope it helps you out this festive season and I hope you find time to make a few treats for yourself too!!
