Hi friends! I hope your weekend has started great! I have been here and there and around. I’m happy to tell you that the weather cast made mistake – they promised rain for all the weekend – yesterday we got some but today I was able to take my sweet friend to the beach and to have a photo shoot with Hanna and Nero to show my new scarf!
She is doing her best and sang a little song, too! I had seen so many beautiful scarfs in many blogs, but how I thought that I don’t need that kind of scarf?! I had saved few pieces of very thin cottons, and when I saw Maureen’s and Jessica’s scarfs, I thought now it’s my time!
I made long scarf without wadding – this way I can use it more, but for the nex winter I shall make an other one with wadding. I used white thin fabric from a huge scarf that I had bought from Zara’s men’s cloths! I bought it especially to make a summer tunic which I did. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a photo at the moment. But the big scarf is here and you can see that from this I took also those tassles!
I had used the darker parts for the tunic and I left those tassles on the hem. The other fabric with blue-white-black colours was hb:s shirt – but that fabric is so thin that it wasn’t proper for men’s shirt. Once I made a tunic from that, too but it wasn’t strong enough even for my use. For the scarf they were perfect …
I made each side half white and half checked. I sew first one white and one checked piece together and then I pinned them right sides together and between I add stripe with tassles that I had cut from the edge of the fabric. Then I sew the long sides and turned the tube right side out. Then I pinned the short edges together and sew all around the scarf. Quick, easy and great!
It’s long enough (about 72″) to use it as Nero shows here or like Hanna is wearing it. As you see, we all are happy with this new scarf! Maureen and Jessica have made great tutorials for their scarfs, so if you need more ideas and details how to make a wonderful fabric scarf, visit their blogs. You will find lots of other interesting tutorials and inspiration as well!
And now lets go to the beach! When it’s sunny it’s suddenly so warm and we had a beautiful moment on the beach with my sweet, golden friend. She sends kisses to her mom and says that she’s fine but missing her!
I guess she could use also some great designer sun glasses from ‘Firmoo’! There is still time to enter our fantastic give away HERE!!! This girl loves water and sea! We could sit there all the day just enjoying the beautiful view, smell of the sea, amazing waves, some dogs on the other side of the beach, parhaps a cat on the rocks and of course … stones!
There is always something I can’t help myself for picking up! About the crochet stone …’ coming soon’!
In the morning I started a new bag project. I should have done this long time ago, because I really need a very small shoulder bag. But my idea wasn’t totally ready in mind so it took till now to start.
I took advicing measurements from this great bag which has too short shoulder straps (I need to pass it over my head). This time I want more neutral colours so I chose this Ikea’s firm cotton with wooden logs. I show you only the beginning because I started with two prints but then I didn’t like the idea and now I need to frog the other piece and replace it with a piece from this same fabric. It’s better to do this project when your hb is out of town, because you may want to use his trousers for the lining …
So this for today … now I’m off to take care of Hanna and Nero … some running and searching (?) in the garden and then my friend is waiting also for her dinner and evening walk. Hb returns tomorrow so I need to remember to hide the rest of his trousers. It’s funny sometimes when I show a new thing I have made … he says: great … that reminds me of something?!
I’m almost sure I haven’t shown you the white mountains. Many days I was trying to find a good place to take a photo. This was a great, warm day and there were people on the beach, some of them even swimming and behind snowy mountains shining in the sun!
But now … thank you again so much for your visit and lovely comments! I’m so happy you take the time to read my small photo stories! I wish you wonderful weekend and hope to see you soon!
