patchwork scarf

today is one of Hugo's friends birthdays and we are off to help celebrate with her and her family tonight. nothing like leaving something to the last minute !!!
after sorting out my scraps i decided to make a patchwork scarf. the inspiration came from Christine and Leslie and because i am always scared to do anything without a pattern i found this tutorial from sew mama sew. Hugo helped me pick the colours and away we went. when i got to the backing which is navy baby corduroy i didn't have enough so i joined it together and put some ribbon over to hide the joins.
i was too scared to do a button and button hole ( as i have never done one before) so i used Leslie's idea of a loop to put the scarf through. i used black elastic and put it at the back, so the front stays flat.
i am really happy with my efforts. i hope Phoebe likes it.
