DIY: No-sew Beach Cover + How to Use a Pareo/Sarong

Back in February I made a DIY beach cover up that has had a crazy popular response. I've been meaning to make a no-sew version, but I haven't been able to. A lot of people have criticized my dark brown color choice for the original post, but in the winter there weren't tons of bright colored jersey fabrics being sold in stores. I went again this past weekend and *still* couldn't find a good shade to use for this no-sew version.

How to cut a pair of socks and make them lace up the back

And I have cut my fair share of socks but always horizontally, but today I have my first vertical cut (also known as "steeking" in the sweater/knitting world). I was inspired by this page in the wonderful knitting book Wendy Knits Lace: Essential Techniques and Patterns for Irresistible Everyday Lace. This page features a pair of socks that have a line of lacework up the back center that is so beautiful. I thought I could steek a pair of socks and add some lace trim to make them lace up the back. How I made my lace-up the back socks: I tried the socks on and marked the spot I wanted to cut down to and I also measured the socks while they were on me from the bottom to the top edge. So all I did was cut from the top edge down to the back of the ankle.

Don't miss other Threads techniques like this by purchasing a print subscription which comes with FREE access to our tablet editions. Here's a detail, that shows how this sweet little trim can be used to good effect. When explaining this trim, as well as other kinds of ribbon work, I will refer to the unit of measure as "ribbon width". Using the width of the ribbon as the increment of measure, makes any work easily scalable, either larger or smaller. Since you will lose 25% of the ribbon length when making this trim, make sure to cut your ribbon length 125% of the finished length you need. Begin the stitching at the lower end of the ribbon and work upwards. Repeat the process all along the length of the ribbon to create the trim. View Scarves by boobsRus. A Fabulous Fur Handbag.

A Fabulous Fur Handbag

And so, for your viewing pleasure, here it is! I hope the braids and closures inspire you. The strap and closure were what kept me from finishing this bag weeks ago. It needed something strong enough to stand up to the fur and the double cordover stitch. This is the shoulder pad--it solved the question of how to finish the ends of the cords on the strap, as well as providing some comfort when wearing the bag. All in all a success.
