Skullie Angel Scarf

What do I get from hanging out in cyber world with all my crafty sisters? Inspiration thats what!Obviously I have been influenced by one of the cleverest of all. Miss Amanda Button! I have always loved her skullie art (just check out her latest offering),but could never create a magnificent rag-doll the way she does. My oldest baby Crooked Halo is also a big fan so here is my homage to the Button Box... an embellished felt appliqued skullie scarf. I thrifted this wonderfully knitted scarf for 95 cents. Dont'cha love the colors someone did such a lovely job on this.So now it was my turn to add to it so it could be loved once again.
The project was super easy. I already had the felt and embroidery floss,so I carried it all en masse to the theatre and cut it out and blanket stitched it on between singin' show tunes. Crooked halo loves the whole girly,fairy,angel,skullie thing so I jumbled it up into one idea.
With the icy-cold weather it was the perfect addition to her ensem today!
