Summer Scarf

Posted on: April 22, 2011

Back in March, you’ll remember the fun tie dye party we had. It’s finally time do to something with the great fabric I dyed. I knew I was going to be making lightweight scarves, so I’ve been keeping my eyes open in the blogosphere for any great inspiration. As usual, I have not been let down. I found a tutorial for a Summer Scarf from Dana Made It and also this Ruffled Scarf from The Sewing Republic. I didn’t have enough yardage to make the Ruffled Scarf, so I went with the Summer Scarf this time. I plan on making the Ruffled Scarf out of a rummage sale find if I can piece it together to make it long enough.

So, enough about that, my beautiful mentor, another woman in a management position who has taken me under her wing share a special birthday lunch each April as our birthdays are ten days apart. This year I knew I wanted to make her something special, and I knew she was fun-spirited enough to pull off a tie dyed scarf, so it was the perfect gift for her.

The colors are so beautiful

I love that even though this is hippy tie dye, the colors came out rich and gorgeous, like an elegant silk batik, and it worked out so that you could pair this with a great outfit for work and it would be professional, or you could throw it on with a summer skirt and t-shirt for some great fun.

I apologize for the darker pictures, the light wasn’t that great but I had to shoot it before I wrapped it!

I love the center accent that hides the gather, great touch!

He died in 1985 but this very personal museum is often a lasting reminder of an very remarkable
man. So far, reactions to the acquisition, as well as to the announcement in the new
business model, happen to be mixed, but only time will inform whether or not only a revamped
version with the massively popular peer-to-peer website
will probably be as successful since it’s predecessor. We’ll
start our tour at Marina Grande for the north shore with the island, about one third of the way in from its easternmost point.
