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.
Great idea for an easy luxe gift.
Great gift idea. Turquoise looks fabu on you!
A perfect gift. It looks great. Funny how sometimes the simplest things to sew look so great and things I spend a week on look like crap… 🙂
What a beautiful color! And what a terrific gift. By the way, I haven’t had lunch yet and I just saw your birthday dinner pictures and I am about to leap through the screen to grab for the food. So beautiful! Whatever boring sandwich I make will not measure up.
That is so sweet of you. I’m sure she is going to love it. The style and the color are great!
Great colour. That teal is yummy
Very cute! I wish I wore more cowl/scarf things… it’s just too hot in Texas. 🙂
Very nice. There were very in this season. Did you make that dress you are wearing?
You should wear this colour, it looks great on you. Did she like it?
I’ve been lurking around for a week or two, thought I’d finally say hi. Love the scarf! I’m sewing over here in Charles Village.
You are glowing!!! You are either in love 😉 or it’s that great scarf!
What an awesome gift idea! I don’t blame you for wanting to use the remnant for yourself, that color looks absolutely great on you!
Cidell, you are so cool. Happy belated birthday.
Fantastic gift idea, and what a lovely colour! Thanks for sharing!!
Great gift in a fab color!
I know that this is an old post, but I’m looking at some of the stuff I missed. Turquoise is your color! I hope you incorporate that into your sewing this coming year, not many people can pull that color off! 🙂
Thank you! You know, I never wear turquoise. Ever. I should think about it! I do have a nice piece of wool in that range that I want to sew this winter.
