So, I was inspired by Miss American Pie's lovely Fringe Scarf, but while I love the look of hers, it's not very "me." And so this was born:

Apologies about being headless trust me you're better off in this case.

While I love the outcome, I think I've created a bit of a monster. All of my shirts are no longer safe. And since I was going to repeat this process, I figured I'd snap some pics along the way in case anyone is interested.

I started with this lovely shirt which I rescued aka stole from my sisters donate pile:


Cut off as big a rectangle/square as you can. In this case it was under the cinched waist. Depending on the neckline it would likely normally be closer to under the sleeves.


Cut across diagonally.


I neglected to take a picture at this point, and I have extremely limited graphics skills, so hopefully this crude paint drawing makes some sense. Since the pieces are too big to just sew together as is, you'll need to make some right triangles from what you have. I used one side on each to form a straight line on the top and cut away excess from the other side to form the point. Like so:


Cut away the excess


You can see where the seam needs to go:


Once I had that done I decided that the top part wasn't straight enough so I evened it up a bit


Ta-da!




For the record, I just left all the edges as it. I figure it shouldn't get too worn and even if its edges start to fray I don't think I'll mind much
THIS ROCKS   Logged

And I keep fixing every habit that I break..
