The ochiri piece has been calling me to turn it into a collar, so I spent the afternoon hand stitching one edge together to make it so. Here is the progress so far:
It is just pinned it together for a closure at this point. Going to work on piping the edges and create a tie closure. I need to get the olive color or the blue color for the piping. We will see if it works out, or?
