A little (big) experiment

While working on the new brown hanky, something occurred to me.

The screen-used ones were actually cut from a much larger scarf, and only represented a quarter of their full size (see right).

I wonder what it would be like to have a full, uncut version?

Well, since I had a Spoonflower order going through, I thought I’d have a go at making one - just to see how big it really was.

It was actually an easy job to create the un-cropped version, as the Photoshop file I created actual had the entire artwork (see left), since I needed to crop it just over a quarter area. It simply had been on a reduced canvas area.

The full area is almost a yard square, so the order covered a yard, just for the single scarf.

Anyway, the order arrived this week, and now I have trimmed and hemmed the edges, here is the result (see below).
I’ve photographed it with my panama hat so you can get an idea of how big it really is!

If you’re interested in getting one of these, drop me a line. I’m happy to make them to order as one-offs.
