One off silk velvet scarf...made as a gift.

After making one of these for myself, my mum requested one as an wedding anniversary gift this year.  So here it is!

I first cut out a piece of undyed silk velvet, then hand dyed this; painting the dyes on to get the effect I desired.

Then I chose some vintage Liberty Print fabric that I had stored away, and stitched these together, to make a two sided scarf.

I wanted to add a bit of detail, so made a heart out of patchwork.

As seen, I have published quite a few images; as this is a more one off piece I wanted to portray it well.

Close ups have been included to show the patchwork design etc.
