Knotty and Nice

• 13 January 2009

I know this project is kind of summery but since there are many-a-lucky-folk heading on to warmer pastures these days, I thought I'd post it anyway...

Awhile back I found a pretty scarf at a consignment store in San Francisco (Crossroads on Fillmore) just after I read this d-i-y in one of Blueprint's first issues. However, it took me forever to finally complete this little project because I wasn't sure where to find the bamboo bangles for the style of purse I wanted to make. However, one fine day, when shopping at Joann Fabrics for some Christmas craft items for my kids (reindeer candy canes are a yearly tradition in my house), I stumbled upon them...and they were only $5 for the set. I thought, why not? I'll just save the bag for the Spring/Summer season.

It turned out well, although it seems the bags need to be fairly full to look attractive. I bet a light coat or a weightier scarf would do the trick.

You can find the tutorial here. Miss you Blueprint.

Hey Steph! How are you? We need to figure out our schedules and get our photography one on one figured out. As always, Cory is traveling all this week and the week after. I"ve switched phones (again) and think I only have your home number. Text me your numbers when you get a chance. Talk soon!

January is a great time to do even summer projects...if we must be inside to not breathe this filty air, we might as well be doing something beautiful and productive inside! I may just have to try this one.
