Today is my day on the Tie One On Blog Hop!
My super-talented friend, Scott Hansen of Blue Nickel Studios, designed a wonderful line of batik fabrics for Banyan Batiks/Northcott, inspired by vintage men's ties. Watch an interview I did with him about his Tie One On line HERE.
If I had to describe this fabric line in one word, I'd choose "wearable." They are so wearable that I decided to make an infinity scarf using these fabrics and my Scarves to Share Cutie Pattern.
I love that red print so much that I used it twice in this scarf.
The weather is turning to fall here in upstate New York, and that means boots and sweaters and scarves. I have my first new scarf of the season ready to wear!
And wear it I did!
Cutie Patterns are written to have very little waste. I took what little fabric was left from my scarf and sewed the pieces together:
Then I grabbed my Postcard Cutting Tool, stabilizer, and white fabric for the back of the postcard:
I zig-zagged around the edges and put them in a cellophane envelope for mailing:
Now these lovely men's wear fabric postcards will spread a little message of love through the mail.
Speaking of men's wear, this is my favorite men's wear look:
I'd love to see that look come back!
