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!

darling "neckerchief". the corduroy will be warm, nice finish.
Very pretty looking, would love to see what it looks like while you are wearing it.
This is lovely! Well done Amy!
the shimmery button is perfect with the oakshotts! Droooool!
Looks fab Amy, well done, and good luck with the competition! :)
Beautiful. Di x
This is a lovely little project Amy. I love Oakshotts too - I sewed with them for the first time last month for the LMQG challenge and was surprised that the weave was a bit looser than normal quilting cotton. But the shimmer is just gorgeous. I nearly ran off with Shevvy's Oakshott bundles when she brought them along before Christmas. Yum yum!
Your scarf is lovely!
I love the colors. I guess I will have to start making neckerchiefs when I move to London! Here in South Florida we have no need for that!
This is a fantastic use for your Oakshot, bet it looks lovely in the sunlight.
Well the fabrics you chose are beautiful....it will keep you warm...nice job
That turned out really well.
It's gorgeous Amy, I love all the textures in there, must get some Oakshott... x
Gosh - that's so pretty in the oakshott - love the sophisticated color/texture as well as the pinwale backing.
That's a beautiful scarf - those Oakshott cottons are amazing! Whoop whoop!!
