Ages ago, I stumbled on a blog called Scarf Ace and I always remember the name because it is so much like Scarface. So I'm borrowing the name for today's blog post title.
I'm a scarf addict and am always on the lookout for scarves or scarf makings. I found a perfectly sized dark brown velvety piece of fabric at my favourite notions store for 59 cents. I just need to find something for the other side:
Hmm, will have to learn to take better pictures - it is not showing up very well. It could probably be used as is if I just trimmed the edges a bit to make them straighter - it doesn't seem like an-easy-to-fray fabric, but I like the idea of having a reversible scarf.
Unfortunately, the project will have to wait until the weekend though as the first round of lay-offs are starting tomorrow. I think it'll be about 130 people. Not good.
Let's end with a pic of my scarf collection:
See that 2nd one? the black, white and yellow one? That was made from a long piece of fabric which I originally intended for a blouse. I even bought a pattern, but chickened out at the last minute and made it into a scarf. Best. Decision. Ever. Lots of people have complimented me on it, so it is one of my "proudly made by me" items.
