Not Just Granny's Scarf Anymore!

Ever since I was young, I have had possession of my Mom and Grandmother's silk scarfs. I would play dress up with them, dress my dolls and even wrapped them around my pony tail hair as a teen. I think I have even collected one or two from a grandmother-in-law. For some reason, I never wanted to throw them away.

While cleaning out some drawers the other day, I found some of them. They are withered, wrinkled and frail. I tried to think of some way to make them fashionable for today. So, I went to my craft bag and come up with an idea of adding beads and making a "scarflace" with a couple of them.



I like they way they turned out and I didn't have to distort them in any way.  They will look good with a t-shirt and jeans on a summer day.

  3. What a great idea! I have scarves from my Grandmother and Mother-in-Law that I never wear, but can't get rid of. This would be a great way to enjoy them... and I think I have the perfect beads in my stash. Thanks so much for this inspiration!!

  4. Great idea! I love the look of scarves in summer but don't like wrapping things around my neck. This looks like a cute alternative.
