Polka Dot Silk Scarflette- Part 3 of 3

Fulling the piece.


                                    The finished silk hankie-embellished scarflette...

                                              ...with bits of re-purposed silk.



                                                        On the reverse side...



                        ...the dyed Mawata hankies resemble colorful spider webs.



                                    The embroidered flower on the ecru silk piece...

                             ...is a detail from the original re-purposed garment.



                                 With two differently decorated sides to this scarflette...



                                  ...it's easily reversible for a radically different look.




                                    For a closure, I added a large ceramic button...



                       ...and reinforced it with a circle of black leather on the back...



                       ...then hand-edged a simple buttonhole with embroidery floss.


  
                                                    The finished scarflette!



                                   Next time: I repeat this project in very different colors.

So enjoyable following your progress with the scarflettes! It’s very inspiring to see what can be done with bits of wool, silk and imagination!
