Origami Shawl. Simple to make and versatile to wear. For those unfamiliar with BurdaStyle, I found the idea from one of the regular members. BurdaStyle is an online sewing community. Sign up is free and they have many different free patterns, ideas, and tutorials. I crib many a great idea from my fellow designers.
I love this idea not just because its easy to make (especially if you have a special button-hole foot for your badass Viking sewing machine) but it’s easy to mod as well.
Since I’ve made my first one, I’m planning on modifying the next one with a dinosaur theme:
(a) I’ll split it into two pieces
(b) sew dino spikes into the center seam
(c) attach a hood
(d) sew dino spikes in the center seam of hood
Cause stegosaurus’ are one of my top five fav dinosaurs :)
