Well I finally am making again! phew what a relief! Crafting, oh how I have missed you. and farbric? oh baby!
These scarves are really popular here in Berlin and since the weather has started turning, they now have a real practical application. Warmth. Since the ones in the shops are 15 euro and are really just a square of fabric anyway, I made one for myself.
It was embarrassingly easy with no sewing required (which is important since I am machine-less). I just bought one metre of fabric from the Turkish markets (1.50 baby!) and cut it into a giant square. Then I cut fringe around the edges and tied a knot at the end of each fringe piece. Tying a heap of little knots was a little tiresome but perfect monkey work to do in front of a DVD.
I heard of a little sewing cafe in my area where one can go and pay 5 eruos an hour to sew in a communal atmosphere. Naturally machines are provided, but also thread and advice from the people. Great eh? Richt now I can only afford to sew on an as needed basis. but I can see some much needed pillow cases in my future.
Many changes around here. New job in a bilingual kindergarten, new German course starting up, moving again soon, and we head off to Italy for a long weekend on Thursday. I will take photos. :)
have a good one folks!
