Some of you may recall my turning an off cut of Liberty Tana Lawn purchased at the Fat Quarterly Retreat in London last year into an infinity scarf. I had always wanted to make more as I've had a lot of wear out of this little scarf. The perfect thing when I need a little extra warmth around my neck, but not so much I feel suffocated and get too hot.
When I saw M is for Make had some of the lovely blue/grey Birch Flight voile fabric in I thought a half yard would make another great infinity scarf. However, when the voile arrived it was clear that whilst it was going to make a longer loop than the Liberty fabric had, it was going to be skinnier. So once I'd made the tube of fabric I decided to embellish the end with some lace trim and leave it open. This way I could wear it however I liked and not have to always loop it 10 times (ok exaggerating a bit!) over my head in order to get it to look and feel right.
I then needed some help with taking photographs of me modelling it. I had to rope in my Mum and find a camera she could just point and shoot without a lot of effort. Any pictures of me now with non photographers behind the camera usually result in my pulling faces as if to say: What on earth are they doing with that camera?
I had to grab a cardi' to cover up the fact I've a very bright multicoloured
top on underneath!
And while we were at it I got her to take a picture of me wearing the Liberty one.
Something I'd not managed to do in the previous year!
