Leather Fringed Wool Wrap

Get cozy with a no-sew wrap that's sure to warm you up on cool winter nights with this how-to from TV crafter Kristin St. Clair.

Materials

  • Woven Wool Fabric
  • Quilting ruler
  • Screw punch
  • Scissors
  • Leather laces
  • Wire

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Begin with a 13-inch by 60-inch piece of tightly woven wool fabric.

  2. Step 2

    Using a clear quilting ruler as a guide, measure in 1/4 inch from both the side and the end of the fabric. With a screw punch fitted with the smallest bit, punch a hole at this measurement.

  3. Step 3

    Continue punching holes along the end of the scarf every 1/2 inch, being sure to stay 1/4 inch in from the edge of the fabric. Do this for both ends of the scarf.

  4. Step 4

    Cut fifty 24-inch lengths from a roll of 3/16-inch wide leather laces.

  5. Step 5

    Fold 4-inch piece of wire in half to create a “needle.” Fold first leather lace in half around bend in wire.

  6. Step 6

    Insert wire “needle” into first hole in fabric and pull about 2 inches of leather lace through hole.

  7. Step 7

    Remove wire from leather lace and be sure that cut ends of lace are even with each other.

  8. Step 8

    To create tassel, with suede side of leather lace facing upward, insert cut ends through loop and gently pull to tighten.

  9. Step 9

    Repeat process for all remaining holes and laces.

    Hi. Thanks for your interest in the triangular shawl. It is simply a large piece of fabric cut on the bias (a 45-degree angle through the grain of fabric). Kristin purchased 2 yards of 60" wide felted wool, cut the fabric into a square, then cut diagonally across on the bias, making the long side of the triangle about 80". For the pieced together triangular shawl, she sewed (two straight stitches) 4 smaller triangles, all cut on the bias, together.

    I am, also interested in the triangle wrap pattern, where to get the wool - what color did she use, and the two leather stores listed do not carry the lace called for (at least not on their website)

    I'd like the triangle wrap pattern also. And what was the source for the wide wool fabric?
