One of my good friends and client is having a daughter graduate from Baylor and asked me to make a Stole for her.  Now I have never done one so this is my first attempt. 
Each side of the Stole is 31 to 33 inches long depending on the person wearing it.  Also the width is 7-5 inches also depending on the individual wearing it. 
Top of Stole

**cut two white strips 6 inches wide and 36 inches long this is the top**
**cut two small strips 2 inches same length**

Sew the black to the white.  Make an 90 degree angle cut on the top of your fabrics.  Then Sew the two tops together and keep the black seams in line
Back of the Stole
**Cut two white 7 inches wide and the same length of the top**
Sew one side of the top and back together.  I decided to sew the black side together it keeps a clean line and easier to control. 

 Once you have one side put together then you can place the unique information that applies to the scholar.

   My friends daughter was in a sorority and she wanted it in bling.  On the bottom of the bling she wanted to have the name the sorority gave.    These things are specific to her and all her sisters. 

She also wanted the Year she graduated on the other side.  With the true logo of the sorority.
When done decorating the
Kiss  the two top fabrics together cut the angels 45 degrees sew one end and sew all the way to the other end.  Then turn it inside out.  Like you would a sock when it is reversed
