This past weekend SP and I went down the mall for lunch and to get his hair cut. While I was waiting, I decided to look around New York & Company...one of my favorite stores. I happened upon this scarf...and fell in love.
I know it's nothing special, but I think that's what I liked most about it. It has a cute little gemmy that can be taken off for casual wear and added on again when I want to dress up a bit.
Well, I was all set to get this baby when I noticed that it was $24.99. Well now, I know that's not an outlandish price, but I was certainly not willing to pay that much for so little fabric!
What's the solution? Make it, of course!
Here's the problem. I'm not really very good at sewing. I'm trying to learn, but I've only done a few things and knew that working with Jersey fabric may be difficult because of the stretch. But hey, it would be a learning experience. Right?
$2.50 and 20 minutes later...here's what I came up with..
Pretty close, huh?
And there it is unfolded.
Did you see my cute little broach?
It belonged to my Great-Grandmother.
My mom let me wear it for a dressing-up occasion of some kind.
(I guess you should let me know if you want it back, Mom! hehe)
I'm super happy with my creation. I think I'm getting better! Can't wait to try something more challenging! But for now, I'm working on some Thanksgiving napkins and such!
Thanks for stopping by!!
