Loop & Tuck Scarf
Let’s start with the Loop & Tuck Scarf. However you choose to loop and/or tuck, the fabric stays put! The secret ingredient is the way the pattern is designed; there’s no slipping or sliding of the fabric.
Start with a large purchased scarf, like a Pashmina scarf, and add texture with elastic thread. I’ll provide the sewing know-how; you decide the stitching and shirring accents. You’ll soon see that creativity is only moments away when using elastic thread in the bobbin. By the way, this technique is easier than you might think!
Add your own signature to a scarf, with embroidery. With a delicate design and a few stitching tips, give your scarf a touch of elegance.
Two fabric tubes make this offset scarf design—it’s called Fringed Folly. The fringed ends, offset design, and playful buttons give this scarf unique style.
Date Night Scarf
A couple years ago, I had the opportunity to travel to Japan on business. Shopping in the Ginza district, I was drawn to a lovely scarf. When I saw the $400 price tag, I knew a comparable design could be made for a song. I call it the Date Night Scarf.
