My “Kantha” Scarves – Part 2

This is my 2nd “Kantha” scarf, made using a thrift shop velvet scarf, overlaid with fabric remnants and sewn in place simply using a running stitch with different coloured embroidery threads. The scarf is an Oriental one, with one side in black velvet and the other in a golden silk. 

This time round I tied the ends of the thread on the patchwork side, leaving the black velvet side clear of any knots. 

I love the bright zingy colours, and how the embroidery threads create an interesting contrast against the black velvet.
