second project scarf


I do not have directions for this one but I think it is easy enough
 seven inch squares of a knit or drapey type fabric is what I am thinking 
remember that great tee sale at CVS? that is what I am using
overlap and pin them like in the picture
and sew one seam down the center

how easy is that?
I am thinking the hardest part of this project would be deciding what fabric to use and how long to make it
I got a brown, yellow, orange and pink tee at that sale and if I open them up
and cut out squares on my mat
the edges shouldn't ravel and I should have plenty

if my math skills are right
(and who knows about that?)
I am thinking we would need about 7-8  7inch squares of the fabric
a 7 inch square has approximately a 10 inch measurement corner to corner
so 6 would be 60 inches long?

so 8 squares would be 80  minus the overlaps
I am thinking a 2-3 inch overlap

how is that for figuring a pattern on the fly?
for .69 or so cents per tee I am in Heaven to get these made!

  2. I think my MIL showed me a scarf very similar to that the other day too. I think with a 2 inch overlap and using 7 squares your scarf would end up about 60 inches.
