I've been taking it easy on my arm this week. I decided to just rest. Studied up Just Pockets bookmarked a ton of resources (more to follow) and re-read one of my fave fiction books. and I got a chance to do some minor on and off site fabric shopping and rediscovered my fabric stash!
I was hanging out in Joann's earlier this week and longingly stared at the pretty sari fabrics - for a while. I wanted to buy YARDS upon YARDS but had no idea what to make, they were just too fancy for my wardrobe. To appease myself I bought only a yard of a beautiful hot pink & gold print and decided it could be a neck wrap. A couple of weeks ago little sis and I discussed how we'd like to incorporate more neckwear into our wardrobes as she picked up a pretty scarf in her fall shopping travels.
Got the piece home and serged a narrow three thread edge in shiny gold, hot pink & yellow, working with what I already had, they all blended perfectly. While I was playing around with the neck wrapping, I had a moment of clarity. Those one & two yard "wonders" I've purchased can become neck wraps! AND from now on I don't have to pass up on any impulse fabric!!! Now why didn't I think of that before, so simple right? Now I have permission to cancel my fabric buying fast and Little sis, you are about to make a come up on some scarves, on your next visit.
The biggest benefit though is having a warm, yet stylish neck.
I didn't want to be "sari" I passed up on such pretty fabric :)
