Scarf/Table Runner

I set out to make a scarf as a birthday present for my friend. I didn’t think the construction through properly, though, and sewed the green fabric to the printed fabric before attaching the backing. Bad idea. I had to rip the seams apart and do it over, this time attaching the green and printed fabric to the black fabric at the side seams.

The seams actually came out looking good, although the lace trim is a little rough. Unfortunately, the piece as a whole looks more like a skinny table runner than a scarf. Oh well. It’s fun to learn lessons the hard way, right?
