My Covert Robin... Exposed!!

I was stoked to be asked to be a co-host for Rachael's Covert Robin Mystery Gift Exchange... and even more pumped when I received my gift in the mail and found out my gift was from Kelley!
She's here today to tell you all about it! 

****************************************

I am so excited to be here today to show you what I made for Lena for the Covert Robin swap!

First, a little about me.
  I am Kelley.


 I have two beautiful boys! I have a craft tolerant husband, and a fair number of pets.  My blog, Casa Crafty, focuses on my creative efforts, with side dishes of life in my house and my love of photography.  I am relearning so many things I think that the internet gives my learning a voice!

When I was first approached by Rachael to be a cohost for the Covert Robin, I was excited, but apprehensive.  I had just done the handmade swap hosted by Audrey at Planet Hausfrau ( Now the idea girl), and I was nervous to get something awesome done in a certain amount of time.
The hardest thing for me, is choosing what to make. I make a lot of things, and I usually have some ideas about the recipient.  But not this time.
I spent time preparing by scouring the Mom2MemphisandRuby blog.  I thought about the things I could make that involved Lena's gorgeous children.  I thought about the things I could make of function.  All of the ideas were things I usually make, and I wanted to think outside my own little box.
Then I was out and about wearing this little number and getting compliments, and it struck me, of course!  But, with spring coming, I decided she needed 2.  Scarves are always a useful accessory.  And I discovered that Lena loves fashion!

Winter
I made the "winter" version out of a boucle terry.  Soft, cozy, not itchy and darker colored.  I figured in Canada, it would still be chilly.  I did base that opinion on my own weather patterns.  Only to discover that I may be on an island of cold and delayed spring...

 I have a tutorial in place on my blog, but I wanted to share it again with you!

full tutorial post here

Spring
The spring scarf is made from a peach and gray stripe cotton muslin.  the green glass beads coordinate but add that power clash that I love SOOOOOO much.  I can't wait to see it with Lena's styling!  I am sure it will be wonderful.

Wrap it up and you have a scarflace!

Hand wash only or you may loose your  marbles beads.

Hope this is useful and a gift that you can enjoy in future years.

Happy Covert Robin!!!
