.So if you wondering why I didn't reply AND deleted your comment ...
or.. if you were wondering if I had a " holier than thou" outlook on life....
where I look down upon thy miniscule readers and sneered as I erased all evidence of contact with my heavenly being.
I was just being a immaculate example of stupidity.
that is why.
anyways, I digress
its my 10th post
In crazy girlfriend terms, the 10th post equals the one week anniversary
and to celebrate I'm starting a series using this giant piece of black fabric
In this series of DIYs, I'm going to take this piece of fabric and magically turn all of it into wearable(uhhh okay, well we could debate a bit about the definition of wearable ) pieces of clothing/accessories
hence the title...
black magic! (I'm so lame)
Your parents taught you to not waste your food, I'm telling you to not waste your fabric.
First DIY is for all the men out there..
if there is any reading my blog
I can almost hear a cricket
this is going to be a DIY Goth Ninja Hooded Scarf (which by the way sounds a lot cooler than a snood)
inspired by Deep style hooded fringe top with hood
you can find their stuff here on their official site or on yesstyle if you just want skip everything and just buy it
and here is my DIY black hooded scarf
For all you people who have no clue what style a goth ninja is,
just imagine it.
its exactly what it seems
|page from F*** Yeah Mens wear|
I personally love this style.
its like Death eater chic
some key points to this style are
1. monochromatic colors such as black, black, black and shades of black (grey),
2. the bigger the hood and the more layers, the higher the level
3. Rick Owens
Now, for the DIY, you'll have to sew a bit. but it shouldn't be a big deal for beginners. (I managed right? )
you will obviously need some black fabric (preferably jersey because it is light weight and you don't have to worry about the raw edges )
fold your fabric in half with the insides of the fabric on the outside if your fabric has 2 different sides .
take something with a hood and draw a hood based on the size of that.
then extend your line to include fabric for the scarf part.
make sure the folded part is the bottom (if you want, you can also have the design with the folded part on the top if you don't want your scarf ends to touch )
pin it carefully
cut it while leaving about an inch for error and other things
sew it all together and you should get this.
and...as you can see it is totally hand sewable
now you could totally stop here but why not go to the extreme to use up all that fabric?
I then took another piece of the left overs and sewed it on the inside of the scarf part.
remember to turn it right side out after sewing!
