The rest of the scarf project

The scarf pillows were just half of the project.  Three other scarves were destined to become wall hangings.  The challenge was to find a way to mount them without losing the rolled borders or the fringe.

I painstakingly sewed a doubled lip out of matching cotton, so close to the rolled border that the stitches didn't show.

The cotton was pressed crisply......

......and stapled around to the back of a narrow, covered board, turned on its side.   The rolled hem stands up above the board line.  The board will be mounted to the wall with screws.

The same technique was used with this scarf so we woudn't lose the lime green rolled hem.

For the fringed scarf, the lip was sewn 1/4" below the fringe in hopes that the turquoise fringe would stand up after the lip was stapled.

It worked!
