Scarf

I finished my scarf last Wednesday but since I have been running around like a chicken with her head cut off I have not been able to upload the images until now. I really liked this lesson although I do have to admit that I have never been more scared to stamp on a piece of fabric before in my life…and I had plenty of extra scarves…I think I could have messed up about a dozen times and still had scarves to work with LOL

For those of you that missed my pillow…this scarf is for an online class I am taking through Joggles taught by the fabulous Lenna Andrews.



I decided to use the square scarf but there are a billion different sizes and shapes out there to choose from. I took this wrought because I typically do not wear scarves and know that this shape would be easy to turn into a pillow if I decided that was what I wanted to do later.

I followed the same stamping instruction that I did for the pillow (you will have to take the class to get this fabulous info) and then I drenched my scarf with ink…this was/is the scary part…you should see the mess I made, I still have ink on my fingers…I put gloves on a few minutes into the process but it was already to late…sigh…



Once my ink dried I followed the ink setting instructions and then I rinsed out the excess ink…OMG I thought I had ruined my scarf…so much ink came out but it was all good…
Scroll down to see the finished product…I really like it…

Enjoy
Caro

I had so much to say about this scarf and I notice that I never conveyed it to you :-)
As I was going through the steps, I kept thinking, it looks pretty now, and it kept getting better and better and on your neck (I think) it got even better. Great job. I will have to try this class sometime.
