My oldest son was telling me how the other kids were saying "scarves are only for girls". Well, seeing as my boy tends to get sick at the drop of a hat, i set out to find a less "girlie" scarf. finding no scarves that didn't have fringe, or tassles, or other frilly embellishments, I decided to make him one. I then decided, that since he is still my baby, even if he is 10 years old, that i would still embellish the scarf i made him. I used some fleece i had left over from making a Jake the Dog costume for my youngest son. Two layers for extra warmth. When i gave it to him, he just got a big smile and hugged me, then he wrapped it around his neck and headed out side to play with his friends. He wear this proudly on cold days, and i have actually heard him tell his friends "my mom MADE this for me! it's the best scarf ever." Now, if you will excuse me, i have to get back to the sewing machine, for i have two other sons who expect their Jake scarves to be finished already...
