Now, I’m by no means a tee-totaler, but the fact that I made something that I call a bar hopping scarf is among the more uncharacteristic things I’ve done. (Hitchhiking is the MOST uncharacteristic thing I’ve ever done. And don’t worry, I will NEVER do it again.)
One of my favorite friends who lives in my computer was celebrating an anniversary of her 21st birthday, so I needed to make her an appropriate present. The first thing that came to me was a fabric scarf; I was feeling somewhat inspired by this and other tutorials like it, but thinking I’d use velvet (oooh, soft) for one side and a patchwork of purples (my friend’s favorite color. and mine) for the other.
And then it hit me. Add pockets for cell phone, keys, and ID/money.
Thus was born the bar hopping scarf, stylish and practical.
The execution was a bit flawed. My seams were nowhere near straight, I could have made the pockets better, I could have closed up the bottom by hand instead of just topstitching it, I could have used velvet on both sides. Next time.
