it's almost sweater weather!
|(sorry for the fuzziness... i was in a hurry since my camera was dying.)|
so first of all, let me tell you about a few things i love:
- autumn. gosh, i love it. if i could freeze the world in any season, it would be autumn.
- sweaters. especially when they're too big for me. big sweaters make me feel small, a feeling i don't really get that much.
- infinity scarves. they are so much easier to deal with, and i love how they draw the eye up towards the face.
- the market. i went to the market on yesterday, and i got 2 large pieces of fabric for 1 euro each. it's one of the best cheapo deals i've ever found. i'm going back on wednesday.
there's all sorts of other things i love, but they don't apply to this post.
for this scarf, you will need:
a piece of fabric -- cut it to 23 in x 70 in (58 cm x 178 cm)
a sewing machine (or i suppose you can hand sew it... it will take forever though)
|hem the long edges of the fabric. these will be the sides. i did it with a zig zag stitch that went off the edge. it worked nicely.|
|then fold it so that you are holding the two ends lined up, inside out. (demonstrated at the top of photo). now simply sew it shut there.|
|turn it right side out so that the final seam is hidden and wear it with pride.|
