the upcycled secret santa swap gave me the motivation to try out an idea that had been floating about in my head for a long time. sticking to the buy-nothing-if-you-can directive, i rounded up scraps of polka dotted fabrics and some spare fleece, along with an overlooked fabric-covered button kit. after some trial and error stitching, here's the happy end product:

a chickadee neckerchief!

a parade of patchworked polka dots makes up the public side, while a soft and cuddly fleece lines the interior and snuggles against your nook. a fabric button helps it to keep its crossed shape or you can forego the closure and wrap it up tightly. wear it right down the middle or off to the side. this was the neckerchief's test run, but maybe you'll be seeing more of these in the future.

hope that kim, of kitten rocks well, can keep cozy while she's crafting in her new (surprise!) neckerchief.

How cute! I could use one of these tonight with the wind howling like crazy out there.
