Handmade Christmas: Part II

Two more pictures I have to share of the beautiful Christmas presents my mom gave me this year. Perhaps my favorite, is this hand-crocheted shawl. Made of perle cotton, it has a wonderful vintage feel to it. I also like the it can be worn over the shoulders or draped more like a scarf.
This handwoven scarf has great color and an earthy, contemporary flare. The rayon chenille is super soft and has a nice weight to it.
Both of the pictures were taken using my grandmother's dress form as a model. She would be so proud of her daughter's handiwork. :-)
