I Love Reversibility!

Making scarves is so much more fun now that I am making them reversible.  I just made a couple mini scarves that have the reversible quality I find so exciting.  Below is a slide show of the scarves and some of the looks that can be achieved with each.

First the fuchsia, garnet, lavender, and purple mini scarf.  All these looks are created with one 4 way reversible scarf.

Next the aqua, blue, mint, and green mini 4 way reversible scarf.

I have to admit, too, I have sort of fallen in love with brooches since I have begun making mini scarves.  I think it all started when  friend asked me to make a smaller scarf for her, that would go well with an heirloom brooch she owned.  I loved playing around with the colors to create something which would highlight the brooch as well as being beautiful itself.

These gorgeous and stylish mini scarves, made from the very soft merino wool and silk, will be selling for $95.00 each.  I will be selling brooches as well.  These will soon be on my Etsy site: micheleballantyne.etsy.com

Another Scarf Creation

This scarf was inspired by the colors in The Hobbit movies! I love the gold and browns and blues that seem to be consistent in so many of the scenes. And once I finished the scarf I felt it had taken on a very aquatic theme with the blues and shadows and hints of little golden fishes swimming around.

 

This wrap/scarf sold to a prominent judge in the Portland area.  Thank you for appreciating my work!!!

Of course, if you should switch which end is on top, you have another four possibilities. And that is just folding it in this particular way!
