The stash busting continues! Today I found languishing in the depths of the stash storage a bag of goodies gifted by my Gran. She’s even worse of a hoarder than I am so this was truly a jackpot find. I expect that many posts in the near future will feature items found in this bag.
The first item that caught my eye was this lovely blue scarf.
I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. I have been lusting for sometime now over a Kimono styled cardigan. In particular, this one from Elle Apparel.
I couldn’t bare to cut up the material though, so I decided to save that one for another day and improvise. The scarf was pretty much a huge square so I figured I could just sew up a seam or two and have a drape-alicious cardigan.
Let me show you how to make one of your own. You will need…..
Your Material – a large square should do it. Pre-hem it if you need to, mine was already done for me as you can see below.
Needle and Thread
Tiny Scissors (regular sized scissors will work but lack the cute factor)
A couple of pins.
Lay your fabric out and fold in half length wise.
Measure in 4 inches from one corner, pin, and hand stitch from the corner to the pin.
Repeat on the other side. Open up and enjoy!!!
What do you think?
PS: Sorry about the quality of some of the photos… Having Camera issues so had to resort to the ancient point and shoot we have lying around.
