Tucking shells

I just started working on another scarf and decided to try some shell tucks. I've never tried this technique before but I've seen it in a few books and the results are always interesting. I had some crinkly gold-ish fabric that I thought would be perfect for tucking. I made 1/2 in tucks spaced 1 in apart and then hand stitched the tucks down at 1 in intervals (does that make sense?)

Here's what the back looks like:

I'm happy with the result and it has already been pieced into a scarf. It adds an interesting texture to the piece.

Speaking of texture...these two bedheaded beauties couldn't stay out of the picture this morning.
