this was originally a headscarf picked up from a charity shop for the princely sum of about 30p (>US$0.50).

I used this tute but had to tweak it a bit cos i'm not slim and I have big boobs. and I didn't face, I just overlocked and hemmed the neckline. the bottom hem I left "as-is" as it's got a funky fringe. I ran some running stitch around to make sure the funky frayingdoesn't go too far Wink


I love it, it's comfy, not to hot, not too cold but I do think I shall lower the neckline a bit...

I love it. I've been craving fringes for a couple of months!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I really like the shirt and the colors in it. What size scarf did you start with and did you just do the running stitch around the neckline?

44" scarf, neckline was overcast to stop fraying (you could zigzag)... then folded over and running stitched.
