Today is The Mama Hart’s birthday.
"Happy Birthday Mama Hart" says Cordelia.
Sometimes she can be sweet.
Any who, I made The Mama Hart a little something something cause that’s the kind of daughter I am. Plus I do have a reputation to live up to seeing as how I am known as the
Giftinator Dun Dun dun.
After diving into my fabric stash and finding a collection of Silk Dupioni scraps I decided to make her a scarf. It seamed like the right thing to do cause I knew the cream and blues would look stunning next to her face. So after a snip snip here and a stitch stitch there I ended up with this little beauty:
It is reversible for those times when she’s feeling a little less festive.
Cordelia LOOOOOOVES it. She refused to take it off and I had to bribe her with maple candy and a nap in my big comfy bed before she agreed to give it back.
Scheesh, what a lush.
This scarf is a perfect example of why I enjoy working with striped fabric—cause it’s obvious when you play around with the different grains of the fabric. See I have stripes going in every which way.
I fooled around with some different decorative seam finishes.
Like the Hong Kong seam.
I threw in some of the cream fabric’s salvage too cause it was fun and stripy.
I was working with scraps and I didn’t have quite enough to get the second cuff so I ended up having to piece a bit, but again I played around with the grain of the fabric and I really like the effect.
I finished it up with a few rows of decorative topstitching around the cuffs.
Bonita! Now I just wish I had enough fabric to make myself one.
On second though, it’s a good thing I don’t or I’d have to risk walking around in matching mommy and me scarves, and seriously, who wants to match her mother.
Just Kidding Mama Hart!
