A slight departure from my previous patchwork scarves. This one was made from a plaid wool blend and a selection of pink prints from my stash*. I was totally random about the width of the fabric pieces and I'm pretty happy with how they came together. I added a ruffle, it just seemed to need it. And that vintage wreath pin? It inspired the project. I found it in a local antique shop and instantly thought about some of the fabrics I was making clutches from at the time. As soon as I got home I started cutting and a couple of hours later the scarf emerged. Love it when that happens.
*Talking about my fabric stash always feels so risque; like I'm some involved in some sort of illegal fiber trade. Psst, want to see my stash?
