there are times when i forget to document the things i make and that was the case with this item. i had made this scarf a few weeks ago and then set it aside because i was not quite sure about it. this evening i wore it and now have fallen in love. the truth is that there are things that need to be modified before i make another for others but for now this is my fall and winter scarf. my intention was to make a gift for a friend. i decided to use the remnants from the pillows. the problem was that the gray suede was not quite as pliable as one might like. so after working on the scarf late in the evening with much excitement for the end result i was met with great disappointment when the thing did not wrap that well. so it sat around for awhile and turned into a table runner on Miss. A's dresser. that is until today. for some reason while i was sorting through her clothing today, something that needs to happen more often these days, i looked again at the 'scarf' and realized i wanted to give it another try. i love it. with a bit of finagling i got it to wrap well. so now i am inspired to go back to the drawing board and try it again with more pliable fabrics.
its funny how a little time can change ones opinion of a piece of work. there is something to be learned from this.
