Last Sunday, I was sitting in services and trying to pay attention when an Idea came to mind. I immediately sketched it out on my planner. Sparkle Jane leaned over and asked, “What is that?” I said, “We’ll call it inspiration.”
The inspiration applied to this, an oversized Hawaiian shirt.
With a hole in the front.
A friend gave it to me because it was an expensive brand and silk and “you can do something with it.”
Guided by the sketch, I cut the back out of the shirt and ironed it flat.
A little digging in the big pile of junk yielded some vintage lace that I never thought I would use. I don’t even know why I kept it. But, it was the perfect color. I wonder how long this lace waited to be put to use?
I drew a rough circle, then a smaller circle about 6 or 6-1/2″ in. I drew tapers that overlapped, so the ends would be pointed.
Cutting out didn’t take long, and left a smaller circle-type shape in the middle.
I did a narrow hem on the inside and outside curves.
Gathered the lace.
And attached it.
Ta-dah! A scarf!
I don’t really have anything to wear it with, so it will probably be a present, but it was a fun experiment I can see trying again.
