And here is the result. Fashioned from your old curtains, this attempt served valuable in learning a number of thing: 1. Turns out it’s not that hard. 2. I need to learn to sew. 3. I need to learn how to cut. 4. I need to learn how to fold. 5. My pattern isn’t thick enough. 6. I need to light the tail end to add heft to the knot. 7. It’s not that hard. #hhcib #howhardcanitbe

This is a first for everything. Cut a pattern from scratch? Check. First time using a needle? Check. First time guessing how hand rolling is done? Check. Now I’m pinning the tie into place before sewing it together - again by hand (don’t dare tackle learning to use a machine just yet. I’m guessing how to sew it together, and had my fingers crossed the blade would align after folding. Worked… Barely.  #hhcib #howhardcanitbe

First attempt at hand rolled edges. Obviously, this isn’t navy cashmere. This is an old curtain I’ve practiced on. You know, that cashmere is expensive. Hand rolled at both blades. #hhcib #howhardcanitbe

For the navy cashmere I’ve opted for 7cm at the blades. I’ve added an extra centimetre to hand roll the edges. #howhardcanitbe #hhcib
