I'll build you a home in the breast of a willow.

A certain special friend of mine had a birthday last week.
I'm really late in sending her gift but better late than never!

This was the card for the gift...

Amy (my birthday friend) has wonderful fashion and it's rare that I feel
confident giving her a clothing item. But this scarf is just too fun.
I found the pin (it's made from a vintage scarf) at one my favorite coffee
shops and the scarf is made out of an old t-shirt I bought second hand for $2.

Since it's going in the mail and will most likely arrive wrinkled, I
sketched this example of how to wear it.

Making the scarf is really simple (I've cut up multiple old t-shirts from my own wardrobe :)I ran into the tutorial at the Thread Banger site, if you'd like to try one out.

It's all tied together and ready to go out in the mail. Unfortunately she's out of town for a few days and I'll have to wait a while before she gets it. So no one go spilling the beans!
Thanks to the resident photographer for the pictures!
Enjoy the mess!


  1. I'm just sitting here, with my mouth hanging open.

    I already *know* you're creative, but then you go and knock the socks off of me with your writing and eye for fashion and thoughtfulness for friends...

    When I grow up, I want to be just like you. And Beth. (Nice job on the blog, Beth! AMAZING!)

    I love you. See you soon! :)

  2. I am SO thrilled to be the recipient of such beauty! Abigail - you are a lovely woman... thank you ever so much!
