Trash to Treasure - New Scarves

These scaves are made from designer fabric sample books. Normally when the material is no longer available the books get thrown away. The fabric has never been used other than to show off fabric in bite size pieces. My favorite decorating place Ace Glass and Decorating saves the books for me. I take the fabric from the books and prepare it by cutting it into strips. I start by picking a color and build on that theme. These one of a kind scarves are assembled on a sewing machine. The ends are then hand sewn and embellished with fancy yarns or vintage buttons.
