Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest ones!

Over Thinking

Sometimes you can over think stuff.
I have been hanging on to this last bit of guipure lace from White Tree fabrics. I have been thinking about adding it to a skirt hem, inserting it into the back of a blouse or using it for lace sleeves.

 
But in all honesty it never seemed to fit any of those ideas. Indeed the dreamed up garment in my head didn't even fit into my wardrobe.

 
However, my mum suggested, "Why don't you hem it and just make it into a scarf?"

 
She was soooo right.

 
A genius she is.

 
Thanks for continuing to help me sew (useful) stuff mum!

Happy Mothering Sunday to all mums out there (original publication date 15th March 2015).
