It all started when a good friend of mine, who loves the beach, started getting ready to move to Rhode Island for a year~where it is cold in the winter, much colder than here. I wanted to make her a scarf that would capture a beachy feel while keeping her cozy while she is out walking her dog in the cold. I bought some fleece at Hancock's during their 54% off sale last week and got to work. Fleece buying note: when you buy fleece make sure you get the most expensive kind - it's washes up the best and keeps it's softness. I can't remember the exact name, but it was about 9$ a yard before the sale.
I paired the winter blue fleece with Sandi Henderson's Dahlia (Farmer's Market) and Michael Miller's Dandy Damask for the ruffle. I also used this combo in this dress (which I love!) The scarf turned out so cute I have to make another one for me!
In other news, I made up with this skirt (we were having a little tiff). I was making it for another friend (more to come later) and am FINALLY getting it off to her in the mail. It's just like mine.
Now a few notes on Sew & Tell. I've been mulling over a lot of things that I love about it and some things that I don't love. I've decided to limit the number of entries to 30. So when there are 30 linkies, that week's list will close. This will help keep it manageable for visiting everyone who is sharing each week. Yes, EACH week! I'm bringing on some friends who will regularly post so that I'm not on the spot each week.
So please follow the guidelines as spaces are limited. I will try to monitor the links to make sure everyone linking up is playing nice. :)
Linky Rules. Please read carefully. The delete monster will be eating non-compliant links.
1. Please write the post for sew & tell - or add a blurb mentioning sew & tell to a post written since the last sew & tell. If you are linking to a post with your own tutorial, please make sure it was a finish from this week and that the completed project is shown first.
2. One linky per person. (please put multiple projects in one post.)
3. Link to your specific post. (See here for permalink instructions - or email me.)
4. Link back here with a link or a button (HTML on my sidebar).
5. Be sure to visit and leave comments on other's posts!
