It's amazing how fast this week has gone, I'd like to say in a blur of glamorous doing, but really it's been more of a cleaning the sick off the carpet kind of week!
Thought I'd post about a scarf I made a few weeks ago. I mean what is a girl to do when Mr.M is away and there is no internet connection? Well, sew ofcourse!!
I kinda had it in my head and it all came together quite quickly once I got going. Did I mention I think ALOT about stuff before I get around to it? consequently I often end up with a resolved design and no real sketchwork.
I used an old Gap linen dress that I wore while pregnant with littleski (she's 8!) for the main body of the scarf, the bottom band is another linen maternity leftover and sandwiched between them is a piece of velvet (from my wedding 10 years ago! hoarder moi??) that I puff printed a while ago, the more you steam it the more the print shrinks in and puffs, I haven't tried washing a piece yet so that could be interesting.....!!
I added some ribbon that were hanging around, a bit of hand stitching and voila! Now I have a toasty neck when I leave the house!!
Have a good weekend!
