obi-belt-wrap-around-button-up-thing

12 August 2007

Last weekend Ms J arrived on sunday morning bearing gifts of wine and fabric and ideas. And one of the ideas was this: turn an unworn wrong-length scarf into a obi-belt-wrap-around-button-up thing like so:

Great idea, no? I tried it out as soon as Ms J left. This is my original scarf:

And this is it as a obi-belt-wrap-around-button-up-thing:

Thanks Ms J! Sorry to gazump you, but we’ll do the same with yours next time (hers is much prettier blue paisley on a creamy silk background, and we have divine vintage buttons to go with it).

    I have to do this! Does this mean I can buy fabric for it? No, no, I should use what I have… darn.
