Neck Bling

At the fabric store a few weeks ago I came across this fun animal print jersey-type material.  Right then and there I had one of those ah ha moments. 

I took home my score and created this in less then 5 minutes


If you haven't already noticed I'm loving fabric stores lately.

Fabric stores are in essence like Safari's - always fun to look at the rare and extinct and bring home a memory of some sort from each roving! I could look at fabrics all day, well in fact I did that as a career for years. Attending the "premier visionne" in Paris looking at fabric swatch after swatch was an incredible expedition!

You should sell your scarves!!!

I actually picked up some jersey the last time I was a fabric shop to try and make my own scarf. I'm trying it out tonight! We shall see.

Ah I've been so behind on blog reading can't believe I forgot to enter your give-away! I love the gurgle pot.

You and I are on the same track! With my new sewing machine and all...a trip to my local fabric store excites me! Love the fabric, it looks so soft.

Kristin said...

Again I wish I knew how to sew...Beautiful!

compulsively compiled said...

It looks good. That happened at our house tonight. Youngest daughter wanted a new scarf to wear, I remembered the scrap of brown gingham I had just purchased and offered it up. She wrapped it and wore it without even finishing the edges. It looked adorable.

Naomi said...

gray, white, subtle animal print... love it! Must learn how to sew, stat.

Pink to Green said...

Great idea; look fabulous!

domestikatedlife said...

So smart! Did you even have to sew it? Sometimes really soft jersey just has a nice way of curling at the edges for a raw finish.

I need to hit up that fabric store, it's so close to me!

LindsB said...

domestikatedlife- I didnt have to sew it on the edges, it curled up nice and cute. I didnt have a long enough piece to use as a scarf though, so I had to cut the yard I had in half and then sew those two pieces together. I didnt do it right in the middle though, so where the seam is is just off center so when I wrap it around my neck the seam is not right in front but off to the side. If that makes any sense at all :) Basically if you lay it out flat and see where the seam is located, one side is way longer than the other.

Anyway, glad you liked it!
