Sew-A-Scarf Challenge

We’re hosting a Sew-A-Scarf Challenge and you’re invited to participate!

Scarves are a 4-season accessory. To celebrate the arrival of spring, take the challenge to sew a scarf for yourself or as a gift, then enter the Sew-A-Scarf Challenge. It’s easy!

For fashion and for fun, scarves are a great way to add a pop of color or to give new life to a so-so outfit.

Sew a scarf with a little fabric and as much creativity as you’d like to add, and post a photo of your completed scarf on the Nancy Zieman Sew-A-Scarf Challenge Flickr Site. Stop back here and post a comment to let us all know that you’ve completed your challenge.

You may use any pattern/directions you’d like or no sewing pattern at all! All sewing, quilting, serging, machine embroidery, and embellishment techniques are eligible! For inspiration, check out the Sensational Scarves Book and DVD or watch Sensational Scarves, part 1 and part 2 online.

Post your photo by Wednesday May 16, 2012, on the Nancy Zieman Sew-A-Scarf Challenge Flickr Site. Then, vote for your favorite scarf May 17–20. Winners will be announced Tuesday May 22, 2012.

Here’s a listing of the fabulous prizes that will be awarded:

$179 Sewing Machine Trolley Bag from Baby Lock

$120 Serger Thread Pack from Madeira

$100 Gift Certificate from Nancy’s Notions

$68 Rotary Cutter, Refill Blade, and Cutting Mat Package from Clover
