I used part of four pieces of my precious and delicious Oakshott fabrics for this scarf. I have not photographed them very well here but if you were to EVER splurge on some fabric, DO buy some yummy and delicious Oakshott. Worth the money for the rich colours that's for sure. There is a sheen equal to magic in these shot cottons and they shimmer without being shimmery. Yum.
I dug through my button box [one of my favourite things to do] and found this glass beauty which was perfect for this neckerchief-thing! This button looks more amazing in real life - it also didn't photograph very well.
I made my neckerchief a little longer than the book called for which I think I like but perhaps I made it 2 inches too long... time will tell once I start wearing it. It was a miracle that I even had the right colour thread in the house when I decided to sew it together so I am pleased I could start and finish it in one sitting without having to go buy something else to complete it! I'm not usually this organised! It didn't take long at all to put together once I had decided on the fabrics (always the hardest part, no?). And lucky me, I have some really fine wale corduroy in black that I plan to make another neckerchief with another time.
Great book by the way - especially "Annie's picnic quilt". It is a green beauty!
