Took the day off last week and talked my hubby into having lunch with me. It was a rare and much needed break in the day. We are always running – so it’s nice to have some one on one time together without the kiddos. If you are ever in Richmond, VA, you must eat at Lunch/Supper. Soooooo good! I had the braised short rib, macaroni, onion ring and bacon sandwich. Wrong, but so right. Yum!
How cute is that boot glass? I need some!
The weather has been slowly turning cooler here. I have to say – I love the fall. Sweaters, layers, cozy wraps – yay for fall fashion. I have been jonesing on wraps – they seem to be all the rage on that blasted site Pinterest. Honestly, I’ve been single tracked on the notion of owning a gazillion.
They are incredibly easy to make. It’s stupid how easy. And the result? Perfection! I thought I would try to explain how I did it..but I neglected to take a ton of pictures – sorry!
I purchased some sweater knit – very lightweight. About 1 1/2 yards, but you can do less or more, depending on the amount of deal you want. I left the fabric doubled on the fold. Sew both short ends. Fold in half lengthwise. Basically you should have a square or a smaller rectangle.
Now, this is the tricky part. Sew the right sides together in a loop around the head hole. Then, turn right side out. You’ll have a big triangle with a section seen together in the middle. Fold back in half and pull the right sides through and sew opposite sides together – like bagging a lining. Do both sides- leaving a little slot to pull everything back through to the right side & slip stitch! Viola!!
