Thread Scarf

Today is my daughter Angela's birthday. She wears a lot of scarves, so I made her a thread scarf.

I got the idea from a Sewing With Nancy episode in which Nancy made a scarf with silk ribbon. After searching the internet for ideas, I ended up using silk ribbon, decorative yarns and threads and small squares of polyester.

The ingredients were layered between sheets of water soluble stabilizer. The layers were then sewn together using a variety of variegated threads. After the scarf was soaked in water and dried, there were spaces which were the scarf a lacy appearance.

Because I love to embellish, I couldn't resist adding beads at the bottom edges.

Happy Birthday, Ang!
