Fiber Scarf- finishing touch

I really like how this fiber scarf came out once I washed and dried it. The last step in this project I did last night while watching TV with Joe- the beading. Adding beads in a freeform manner not only embellishes the scarf, but it is functional as well. It adds a nice weight to the scarf ends so it drapes well.

Here are two pictures:



Today’s project is starting a new quilting job, plus designing my fiber charms to trade at ArtFiberFest. What are fiber charms? There was a great how-to article in a recent issue of Fibre & Stitch on this topic. Anyhow, for the uninitiated, fiber charms are charms for a charm bracelet made out of fiber material.

I am thinking of painting either leaf or flower shapes out of the thick pellon that I used to make the leaves in the crochet purse pattern shown here. Then I want to add a “Carla” touch somehow. Or perhaps I should make a sailboat charm, then draw one of my fish designs onto shrinky-dink to add as a mini charm on the fiber charm. As you can see, who knows what I will end up with!! LOL

Regards, Carla
