Since it was so cold down here, when I stumbled onto this tutorial over at wee folk art, I knew I had to make this. We love anything that reeks of little house on the prairie. Plus, I had woven cotton taking up space in my closet. These are so easy!!!!
- you just cut the fabric into a 45″ square
- fray about 3/4 inch by picking out threads.
I made five of them in about an hour real mom time (real mom time factors in interruptions and plumbing emergencies).
The girls were using them as shawls, as lap blankets, and they even wore them as scarves under their jackets. Emma is modeling the sari look. Chloe has gone back to her Polish roots and is wearing it as a head covering!
