I had dinner last night with the Vegan and his daughter. Her birthday is today so I wanted to whip up something to give. Her dad told me her top colors are yellow, turquoise and purple. So, yesterday I popped into A Fabric Place / Michael’s and picked out a pretty teal wool jersey for $10 a yard.
I made several of these around Christmas as gifts. This time, I just did one seam. The dimensions I copied from the American Apparel website. 70 inches in diameter. 50 inches wide. She’s tall. Taller than me, so I should have made it a little longer. But, for a ‘Nice to meet you. Happy Birthday!’ gift, it was fine.
Can you imagine they charge $30 for their cotton ones? This fabric was absolutely lush. I’m using the leftover to make myself a traditional scarf.
