Of course, I had to make changes. I just cannot NOT make changes. By the time I was finished, the only thing mine and the original had in common was a triangle. Changes:
- My triangles are 22 x 14 inches which is larger than the pattern.
- After sewing together the two triangles and turning them right sides out, I sewed the edge all the way around a quarter of an inch in.
- The tutorial called for a straight strip of bias tape to bind the long end and serve as ties. I wanted to just use scrap fabric from my stash. I also wanted the ties to be long enough to bring them back to the top so that the tie is on top of the head. Back when women wore these things, I always hated that knot on the back of my neck. I had enough fabric to make long ties that would serve my purpose but not enough to cover the full length of the scarf. I folded strips of fabric for two ties and sewed them to the corners.
She got it on the right part of the body, but not quite straight. When you are as pretty as this, though, everything looks great anyway!
I love it with the long ties. So cute.ReplyDelete
