I bought this cashmere scarf at a car boot sale a while ago for .50c.
Any 100% cashmere can be boil washed and becomes felted. It can be cut and used without fraying for any felt project. So regardless of style, i will always pick up cashmere. I pretty much knew what i was going to do with this scarf.
I've always been a bit prone to a mood board, mainly when decorating a room. When I was working I had access to piles of fashion and decor magazines. Ripping out any picture that appealed to me. Sorting through my tear sheets, my personal trends would emerge.
I don't have access to the same quantity of material as i did then. I only ever buy a Sunday newspaper now and a magazine is a rare treat. Thank goodness for Pinterest. But you can't beat hard copy.
Many of the images on my pin board at the moment are from a Toast catalogue from a couple of seasons ago. Including the one that inspired my latest crafting endeavour.
So a bit of freehand scissors work and a touch of blanket stitching later, and.......
Ta-dah! 100% cashmere hottle bottle cover. Roll on winter!!!!
