This scarf is to scratch the itch I got when I saw the Sartorialist's post; I also made this etsy treasury on the same theme. I think I got it out of my system now.
Genevieve suggested she model the scarves and the poses were all her idea. She's peeking out from a vintage upcycled pillowcase with gorgeous sherbet colors, black leaves, and daisies; I combined it with aquamarine linen and topstitched it in double rows of black.
(different time, different child, same child-initiated modeling)

Here, boringly enough (where are the children?) is a gingham and roses + cherries combo with rick rack edging. It's not easy to mix patterns in a fresh, yet congruent way; I thought I was giving it a fresh vibe, but it turned out a little more Laura Ashley than I thought.
I love the color play and stories that are built into these scarves; like making a quilt, but far less time investment. . . and I've never seen someone wearing a quilt around her neck. . .
Whatever does not sell in the April event will go into the etsy shop; well, I guess if you fall in love with one of these I can sell it to you in a reserve listing on etsy. And then I'll sew some more. Pin It
