patchy

Yesterday my sewing machine and I had a nice lunch date. I apparently became obsessed with patchwork and started sewing scraps together like a maniac. When I saw Kirsten's scarf a few days ago, I remembered the scarf in the Denyse Schmidt book I had been wanting to make for awhile. I only slightly followed her directions and used some various scraps of odd fabrics I had lying around. The back is lined with some flannelish fabric that I don't even know where it came from. I kinda like it and I'm resisting keeping it for myself. Oh where are you fall?? I want to wear some cool weather clothes with flip-flops! Anyway, simple project and fun to do. I'm thinking a few more of these might be whipped up for the upcoming craft fair in november.

These two belts also came out of my little frenzy. I followed this tutorial and they come together in a snap. Easy peasy.

I love the scarf. Lots of pink. Yay!
I love wearing a cotton sweater, capri's and my flip-flops in the fall. Or jeans and flip-flops. But then I'll wear just about anything with flip-flops.

I am itching to make a scarf soon, too. I like the belts-you chose great fabrics to go together.
