Happy New Year y’all!!!
This is my first post of 2013 – and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Rather than bore you with all the l
ame and boring oh so exciting details of what I’ve been up to, I think I’ll get right to point today … besides, I’m already late to pick up my daughter!!! (wish I was kidding about this!)
My awesome grandmother, known affectionately as “MeMaw”, passed away last Spring. She lived 95 beautiful years! I’d guess that she sewed for about 85 of those years.
Anyway, as I went through her closet, I found a few scarves that I thought were worth keeping. Now, they weren’t exactly worth WEARING but they were worth keeping.
So today, I had about 20 extra minutes (translate: I can be up to 15 minutes late before I get in trouble!), so I ran to my little stash of scarves and grabbed this one.
Then, I just simply sewed the pom pom fringe all around the perimeter of the scarf. I used a long and wide ZIG ZAG stitch to be sure I got a good hold of the fringe. This also keeps it from curling up on the edges as I wear and wash it.
Time: took me about 7 minutes – I could’ve done it in 5, but that
stupid bobbin needed threading halfway through.
Cost: Scarf – FREE. Fringe – about $3 (I got it on 75% clearance!!!! hollah)
Think. Think. Think.
What can YOU add fringe to???
