lace, linen, silver & gold





These are some of the ingredients that went into making this scarf from Carefree Clothes for Girls. I had so much fun putting this together down to the last piece where you make a ruffle and sew it on one end and add a jingle bell and buttons. You may remember this post where I showed you the back of the piece showing how the pure silver thread tangled up back.
It put to good use some of the vintage pieces like doilies and lace and buttons from my stash. It's a bit long on Scarlet right now but she loves it. So much to look at and all the lovely textures to feel. The melton wool it is backed with is very soft and gives the piece the body it needs. I may have to borrow this. Though I may be greeted with 'NO MINE' which is one of her favorite phrases these days. Along with 'meowing" of course.
