scarf stories

speaking of travel, this chickadee recently wrapped up a cute little custom order that was sparked by some sightseeing souvenirs. caitlin c. contacted chickadee central about making some pillows from scarves that she'd collected during some recent adventures. what a great idea! and what a fun project too. here's what we came up with:

the two gray pillows in the background are 20" square. she had four of these scarves so the pillows are the same front and back, fully lined with a zipper closure at the bottom. the other three scarves were one of a kind. they are 18" squares backed with natural denim and have an envelope style closure. there was enough material on two of them to add a little bit of flair to the overlapping sections.

thanks caitlin for entrusting me to make something out of the beautiful things that you collected! hope that they brighten your space and remind you of the wonderful places you've well as provide comfort and cushion when you need a rest from wandering.

Those are really really nice. What a great idea. To buy scarves from the places that you visit. Your memories can be sitting in your cozy living room, family room for all to enjoy and bring back some pleasant go girl. kd
