Sunday

Flower Boa

I've recently become a convert to scarves; I wear them everywhere. A friend had a felt one that I coveted. Could I make one like it? Sure 'nuff.
I found some wool shetland sweaters at a thrift store, washed them in hot water and dried them at the hottest setting on my drier. Some I did twice just to get them to shrink completely. 
 I started with a 4" square of the blue and cut it into 4 petals. I made three more layers like the first; each one slightly bigger than the last, until my last one was 6" across. With contrasting yarn and a yarn needle, I stitched lines through the middle of each petal using a combination of running and back stitch. With a regular needle and thread, I sewed the layers together (offsetting the petals) and added 7 beads in the center.
 I cut out 16 leaf shapes, approximately 3 x 5" and added veins with contrasting yarn just like the flower. I combined strands of eight while I was stitching the veins. As I got to the pointed end of one leaf, I added top of the next leaf under the point of the first and sewed the veins through both leaves.
Using the yarn and yarn needle, attach each leaf strand to the back of the flower.
Place the flower to one side of your neck and throw one leaf strand casually across your opposite shoulder.

Can spring be near?

What a great idea! Every once in a while I comb through thrift shops looking for wool things to wash and felt. Once I found one already felted! LOL Someone washed the sweater by mistake and gave it away. I got it for $1 and used it in a sewing project.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Berita Piala Dunia
