"You may also notice the scarf lengths in two colours of crushed velvet in the top picture. They were bought in the Droguerie concession within the same store. Must get the sewing machine out and rustle up a posh scarf for myself. I can see a beaded edging of some sort in my mind's eye."
Plus, there are subtle colours hiding in the folds of the crushed velvet waiting to be hit by a certain light.
I hand-stitched in the beaded edges because I wanted to make sure they were really secure and machined up the sides, leaving a wee slit unstitched so I could turn it out and hand sew the last wee section.
I love my new posh scarf :-)
P.S. If you haven't had a chance to look at my Californian gift yet, please see the post below.
