I have been very inspired lately! Here are a few of the beautiful new scarves I have created. Check their availability in the Scarf section of my Etsy shop.
Coffee Lovers Scarf – Silk hand dyed using coffee! Design of wool is of coffee beans and froth. Perfect gift for a java guzzler.
Scarves with adorable owls on them!
And now, my favorites!
Eee! I wish I could keep them all, sport them around town to the post office and back home! hehe. More are done but not yet photographed, a beautiful one is on my felting table right now and many more are on my to-do list. My goal is to make about 20 new scarves. I have so many designs in my head, I want to get them out. I know many will be going to people as gifts during the holidays so that is very motivational.. ’tis the season for scarves with a chill in the air!
Planning vampire bite scarves! Appropriate I think.
Wool roving, sometimes silk, bubble wrap, water, soap, and my creative energy and vision create these unique felted scarves…
I made two new “bloody vampire bite scarves” recently. I LOVE making these scarves! These are the nuno felted version where I use soft merino wool roving in natural ecru (white / cream) and two shades of red as “blood” and white silk gauze fabric.
One of them has a lot of “blood” on both sides and bite marks going horizontal.

The other has less “blood” and bite marks going vertical.
** This scarf was shipped to Sweden!
The reds are bright and the silk adds a lot of beauty to the scarves, causing certain areas to be semi-transparent. Both of them measure 90 inches total – 70 body, 20 fringe – and the width varies between 4-5 inches. Light, warm-yet-cool, and very soft, these scarves are a great accessory to utilize all year long. If you don’t want to show off your bite marks all the time you don’t have to. There are many ways to wear it that make it look like any abstract sort of red and white nuno felted one of a kind handmade scarf…
Be sure to check out the scarf section of my shop for all I have available and examples of what I can make. If nothing I currently have listed is exactly right, contact me to discuss a custom order. I would be thrilled to create something unique for you!
New scarf product line in my shop. These scarves are very fun to make and are super duper soft. Meant to look like bacon! But hey, if somebody sees it and doesn’t “get it” they’ll just think you’re wearing a pretty brown/pink/peach/white scarf 😉 They don’t even have to “get it”. Those who do are sure to get a kick out of it!
Recently I’ ve been busy making wet and nuno felted scarves out of silk and wool.
Experimenting with dye on silk has yielded some good results. Except for one – I found out that using any bleach on the silk pretty much eats it away quickly and turns it yellow. Oops!
The way the brown and gold scarf turned out really made me happy, as well as the purple one. Yes they are as fun to touch as they look – they are very soft. I started adding felted flower accents and think it makes them stunning. Check them out!
I made these two scarves to order last week. My Vampire Bite Scarf and my Woodsy Owl Scarf. Awesome as usual if I don’t say so myself.
Many more to go…
