|diy fringe scarf|
Did you shop Isabel Marant for H&M? I didn't join this year but I shopped a few past collections. It's a kind of surreal experience that has a little to do with reason, but with muscles, sweat and adhrenaline. It's not a football match, it's serious shopping. Women queueing outside the store aren't girls, they are soldiers with a mission, athletes waiting at the starting blocks and
It's shopping, sometimes we get carried away. Words like "limited edition" and "designer" are music to our ears of fashionistas and H&M knows it well. It's because shopping is also an emotional experience.
One of my favorite pieces from the Isabel Marant collection is the fringed scarf. I had some fun crafting an inspired version in red that is one of my favorite color of the season.
Are you always rational when shopping? Did you ever regret a purchase?
|the inspiration: Isabel Marant for H&M silk fringe scarf|
- 70 x 70 cm or 30x30 inches piece of fabric (I used jersey fabric)
- 280 cm or 120 inches of fringe trim
- 4 big glue on studs
- 32 small glue on studs
Cut a 70x 70 cm or 30x30 inches square of fabric.
The size of the scarf can be varied to your needs. You can get a nicely big scarf with these measures that can be wrapped around the neck.
Decide where you want to place the studs and draw your pattern on a piece of paper. You will able to place all the studs exactly where you want and in the same place in the four angles.
Cut the paper and place the studs into the holes. Iron the studs in place.
Remove the pattern and repeat the steps above on the other angles.
Stitch the fringe on the edge of the scarf all around. I used a zig zag stich.
