Sandrine's magnifique scarf

I wanted to show you how magnifique (French for gorgeous!) my new hand felted scarf is and to tell you how amazingly beautiful it is to touch. This is one of the creations of the very talented Sandrine from histoire de soie...


Sandrine makes her own felt then uses it to create hats, scarfs and brooches. The detail on her creations is amazing....


One of her specialities is hats for special occasions. She sells them at markets and online, and also takes custom orders. They are exquisite.

You can see more of Sandrine's designs and creations (and get her delicious French recipes) at her blog and Etsy shop.

Stop by and say bonjour to the gorgeous Sandrine!

Lurve your scarf - I bet it is uber soft!

I so very much adore the hats... there is something 'old worldly' about them that is utterly romantic.
