In Florence I bought a couple of yards of wool: gabardine, fresco lana, georgette...I had what the experts call "the perfect shopping experience", as I spent some time with a charming, talkative gentleman who offered me a lot of good advices, a great chat, and, all in all, a very good afternoon!
At that very moment I thought I was going to use those fabrics for making clothes, but - ...guess what? - one yard of crêpe has already gone for a new idea: patchwork infinity scarves!
Honestly, I had kept the project under the bed for years! So, when I finally got the right wool, I felt compelled to start with it!
Then I must say my silk obi belts have done great this summer, so I decided to give a chance to the infinity scarves for the autumn/winter - which fashion considers one only season.obi belt, and of the headbands! I used it here to create a element of distinction (or distraction), it is so shiny...then the silk section may be used as a hood (both wool and silk are naturally water repellent, so it may help for a while)!
The buttons are just decorations, and a sign of love for homemade accessories. I would have loved to put giant fuchsia buttons, but I didn't dare. Moreover, they'd cost me a kidney!
The scarf can be fold in two or three, and of course worn wide open....Isn't a unique touch to your handmade wardrobe? Let me know what you think!
