babushka style kerchief
A babushka style kerchief was made for Ms. Scarlet. She will not wear barrettes or 'tails' at the moment and I am reluctant to get her first haircut so I am looking to designs for other types of hair accessories.
This is a modified version of the kerchief found in Carefree Clothes for Girls. I made the triangle smaller and used ric-rac rather then lace and am happy with the result. I love the unfinished edges. S is not so sure but, decided to wear it for a little while at least.
As little bits of sunshine reflect the gold thread and blond wisps of hair I watch as the light plays round her face. And, later that evening we hold hands and she pulls me along making me run down the sidewalk of our block only stopping to make note of the birds and bunnies we see along the way. I am happy for her youthful spirit which brings me joy after the long day.
