Scarf season is upon us. Bedeck your neck with a stylish winter wrap – whether you make your own or embellish a store bought scarf.
Bundle up in our Circle Scarves (IJ878), constructed with wool or polar fleece pinwheels. You can create a variety of looks by mixing colors and adjusting the length. Going green? Sew a scarf from recycled sweaters with The Manhattan Messenger (IJ751) pattern. Repurpose vintage hankies to create the showstopping stole from our Hankie Style book.
In Vintage Notions, you’ll find instructions for several classic scarf styles that remain fashionable today. “The scarf continues to hold its magic touch of smartness to our newest costumes,” Mary Brooks Picken wrote in a fashion article featured in the book. “It may be a sports triangle, a large draped affair for afternoon, taking on almost the proportions of a cape, or it may be only a graceful wisp that adds its own flattering touch of softness to a chiffon gown.”
You can also reinvent a readymade scarf with embroidery, applique or needle felting. Needle Felted Fashions and Needle Felted Accessories both feature neckwear with easy and adorable embellishments. Use a needle felting mold and wool roving to add a colorful accent in seconds.
