Recycled T-shirt Neck Wrap

These will be available in the Shop Friday, July 27. 

It has always been important to me to reuse and recycle.  Since my main interest is textiles, quilting was the initial start for using old clothing, curtains and other materials for creating and using what you have.  I grew up in a rural part of Appalacian Kentucky, we were very poor, but I had a love for fashion and fabrics from early on. There was limited places to shop, and I hated the fact of wearing things that looked like everyone else, so I would just cut up the curtains or whatever I could find and make stuff. My grandmother did some quilting and sewing,  my mom had a few old coats and dresses that I would remake to wear.  
One of my signatures pieces for the business Armstrong Industry is the neck piece-scarf, wrap, shawl.  It is so easy for fall/winter with all the fabric options available.  I wanted to do something for the spring/summer that was a little lighter is fabric weight as well as style.  This is what I came up with.
