Lots of Scarves as Favors

May is done, I’ve got so much to share with you, I’m just gonna get started!

Back in April, I delivered 104 hand dyed scarves to the Redlands Women’s Golf Association. They were to be used as favors for their annual tournament. Although the original idea had been for them to tie each scarf in a pretty, fluffy, arrangement with some matching silk ribbon I had dyed and leave one at each place setting, when they were setting up the tables the women got worried about water glasses being filled and drops splashing on the scarves (although they needn’t have worried, they would have been just fine). ANYWAY, they ended up tyeing the scarves around each chair. They sent me some pictures last week to share with you all.

They look like they’re enjoying the scarves, don’t they? The woman who ordered them all from me told me that they were all very pleased! Hooray!
