Free As A Bird scarf by kittyvane Free As A Bird scarf by kittyvane
In the hopes that we'd still get a proper winter instead of the elongated autumn we have now, I made a scarf. Since I'm not that good at knitting, I sewed it up instead.

The topside of the scarf is made out of three different cotton prints with cotton lace for decoration. There's an open birdcage embroidered on the back of the neck and a little bird on the end of the scarf. The underside of the scarf is lovely super soft, toffee coloured fake-fur.
The whole thing is about 25 cm wide and 150 cm long.


I had to dress up my fitting dummy (I call it Abby) as it's old, ugly and broken and thus can't serve as a nude model. ;)

That bird is just too cute for words - and, I never realized you really could make cute scarves out of fabric, not knitting or crochet :D You've inspired me yet again :glomp:

And... I think I just bought some of that fur, or something really similar :giggle:

As long as the money you throw is only bills, since being hit by a coin might smart a bit. :D

our winter is usually like an extended autumn then our summer ends up being "OMG-CENTER-OF-THE-EARTH" temperatures...

If it weren't for the greenhouse effect, our winters would be cold enough to freeze your face off and summers nice and balmy. Now we have winters that you can't tell apart from autumn and summers are either a warmer version of autumn or then resembling the bowels of hell. :D

Happens all the time here too. This summer it wasn't too bad. It was really dry the whole year though even in winter. The TV was going "OMG OMG OMG WE'RE IN A DROUGHT" and now it's "OMG OMG OMG WE'RE FLOODED!!" -- silly weather.

Pssst, I'm going to list this on Etsy some time in the future (waiting for the exchange rate to improve so I won't make such a loss on the sale).
