It's been another gloriously hot day down here in Devon. Far too hot in fact, to do the ironing, vacuuming, cleaning or any other type of housework. My house looks like a pigsty, but it's a very sunny pigsty -so who cares ?
It's not too hot though, to lie in the garden looking through Japanese craft books,
and it's not too hot to make a summery scarf.
In fact, it's perfect weather for it.
Just fold a pretty piece of fabric in half length-ways and with right sides together, stitch all the way round leaving a small gap to turn the right way and then slip-stitch gap.
Wash or wet thoroughly and then holding both ends, twist and twist and twist until it sort of twists in on itself . Tuck the ends in to stop it unravelling and put it in the sun until completely dry ( I left this one for a day).
Finish off with some beads and sequins and there you go - something to wear whilst you're making and shaking those cool,cool cocktails .
I'll post photos and ISBNs of some books tomorrow, but for now..
make mine a Mojhito.
