Patcworked scarf - mori and kawaii inspired



I cannot tell you how long I wanted to make this scarf for myself.  It is inspired by mori and kawaii fashion I am so obsessed by lately. Since the moment I first saw the one which served as inspiration I knew then and there that I have to make something similar. (I'll share the inspiring one in another post).

For the scarf I took out all the fabric I had in matching colors and designs, I added a splash of crocheted flowers, a sprinkle of vintage lace and ruffles for good measure and a pinch of beads. I lined it with jersey. For the front I used linen, cotton, corduroy and jersey. It is pretty wide and quite long. Feels great wrapped around my neck :)

Since I was in the mood for patching, I made another one the same day but in different fabrics and colors. I will show it soon.

The scarf is pretty but really comes to life in the pictures of it being worn. Very lovely.

This is a terrific gift, and a great way to use little bits of special fabrics and trims. I'm going to try and make one too. Thanks!!

Beautiful. Something so magical happens when different weights of fabric are combined. Especially when you add such pretty trims. It's luscious!
