lace cowl

(I've stopped posting on this site but here's the latest post to lure you over and keep up with me here. There's a few new posts on my new site.)

lace cowl A couple of months ago my friend made herself this cute cowl/infinity scarf (I honestly don't know the difference...) So I decided to attempt my own. 018   I don't photograph well....kinda looks like I'm mad, or sleeping. Awesome. 020 Now I look like I'm winking...creepy. 021 Let's agree that I never do another self portrait again? And FYI, I'm totally flying no make up, not even concealer, as if my skin and eye bags weren't an obvious enough clue keeping it real, plus I want to still be friends, and to be honest if I looked really cute and then showed you how easily I'd made the scarf you might start to hate me a little. :) lace cowl I actually upcycled a top my sister gave me which was a little tight. Okay a lot tight, but it works well for this. 013   This is how the cowl looks when it's not folded. I literally cut the bottom off the top, pinned the top edge under and sewed a straight line. You could even hot glue if you're adverse to sewing. lace cowl There you go! Super easy and will hide the sticky finger prints from your little angel nicely! lace cowl   Ah, much better with my head chopped off! This would make an awesome gift, just upcycle an old top, and if it's jersey knit you wouldn't even have to sew the hem! Perfect for when you want to craft something for yourself, but you have a to-do list that just keeps getting longer.
