|It was a beautiful snowy morning. And I had declared it to be my 'craft day!'|
|I love this top. A ton. But alas, it makes me look pregnant. And since I am now 50 years old, that is not a good thing. Ha! So I saved it for the fabric and today decided it'd be perfect for making a knit scarf. Bridgette of Ette Studios has a great tutorial which has been making the rounds on Pinterest. So I give her all the credit and thanks for her inspiration! You can see it HERE.|
|Cutting the body of the top into strips. Stretching them out. And using the coordinating ties from the top to be my 'wraps.'|
|Alternating the side seams so that when I wrap them, they are not all in a bunch.|
|Using the wrap to hide the side seams, keep the strips together, and add a cute contrast.|
|Now to wrap the other set of side seams.|
|Pinned into place, making sure that the hand sewn side will be on the same side when the scarf is worn.|
|Handsewing the ends of the wrap together and alittle bit to the scarf.|
|Trying to take my photo in the bathroom mirror!|
|The sweater I plan to mostly wear with the scarf.|
|Oh and this sweater works too. I doubled the scarf up today and it looked cute. The picture isn't that great...but my 13 year old son was the photographer. :)|
So there! I have FINALLY made a T-shirt or knit top scarf!! Wanted to for months!
Thanks for stopping by!
