Here’s a dead easy something to make. All you need is some fabric, needle and thread. I used my sewing machine as well, but if you’re Amish you can stitch it by hand.
3 pieces of fabric – two were 13cm wide and one was 16cm wide, but they all need to be the same length: 180cm.
1. With right sides facing, and with a 1cm seam allowance, sew the long sides of the pieces together. All of them.
2. You’ll end up with a tube.
3. Push your arm through the tube…
4. … and pull the end of it through to the top.
5. With right sides together, you’re going to sew the raw edges together, leaving a 10 to 12 cm gap. (You haven’t turned the tube inside out yet). It’ll look like this (the arrows are to show you where I left the gap):
6. Pull the cowl through the gap in the seam til it’s all right side out. Slip stitch the seam closed. Give it a light press, and it’s done!
At this length, and especially if you’ve used stretchy t-shirty fabric, you should easily be able to get it round your neck three times, if you want to. I generally wrap mine round twice, but you can also fold it in half and pull one side through the loop for a different look.
and if for some reason you don’t want anyone to know it’s you, you can flip one loop over your hair and smack on some sun gogs….
Back soon x
