One Thing Leads To Another...

My scarf print strike off from Spoonflower came in the mail Thurs. I opted for cotton voile thinking I could easily tear the fabric and just have raw edges. (Also got samples in the silk/cotton and cotton sateen to judge print quality and fabric hand). I was very pleased with the look and feel of the voile.

It's way past time that I get some show announcements printed. As I was beginning to work on my layout, I thought it'd be cool to have a QR code on the front image that would jump to the scarf in my Cargoh shop... So THEN, I needed to transform my yardage into a scarf. Easy, right?
"All I have to do is tear the edges, press it, and take some photos."

after tearing all edges -- note how off-grain the print looks/is
I'm going to have to merrow stitch the edges. Do I have a serger? Not 15 minutes ago, but one is on the way from Amazon. Meanwhile... still need to get those cards printed... Maybe I'll pretend the scarf is hemmed and stick it on Cargoh. Then again, thinking I'd rather market a scarf that's oblong... Which means I must order more yardage.... AAAARGH! My head hurts! Why didn't I decide these things months ago?
