A Pretty Scarf for a Beautiful Lady

I saw this scarf and immediately fell in love with it.  I knew I had to make it for my Nan, the most beautiful woman I know.  It is very easy to make and I can see a few more in my future, namely for my daughter Hillary and I.  One thing I did that I’m slightly disappointed with. I put far too many flowers near the bottom of the scarf, which makes it heavier, and it bunches them together which hides the crystals and sequins I sewed into the middles of them.  I do love the the soft aqua colour, and so does Nan.  I’m not sure of the width, maybe it is a tad too wide?  What do you think?

  1. I think it is gorgeous! The width is just perfect for a chilly day. Thank you for sharing!

  2. I think your scarf is beautiful- nice work!

  3. I think it is lovely and pretty. If it is too wide, it looks like it would be easy to fold in half lengthwise? or bunch narrower?

    He he, your comment about little treasure pouches making laundry less exciting made me laugh. Fortunately most of goose's clothes don't have pockets (an advantage of being skinny and mama making most of your pants just basic knit pull-ons) though today -- we raked leaves this weekend and of course goose rolled around in the pile and buried himself in it, so there were a lot of leaves and sticks in the machine. oops! :)

  4. Oh wow, I love it. You're right, the color is beautiful. I'll have to make a few of those, my nieces would love them. Thanks for posting the link.

    Thanks for coming by my blog, I've been gone for so long but I'm really happy to be back. I just love to craft and the blog motivates me to do what I love.
