Today I’m featuring the third episode of my Sewing With Nancy TV series, Sew Amazing Scarves. Whether you’re a newcomer or a seasoned sewist, I’m almost certain that I have a style for you. Sew Amazing Scarves is this week’s online Sewing With Nancy feature. Watch online, on PBS, or DVD. As in the past two weeks, vote for your favorite style. A random winner will receive a copy of the book, Sew Amazing Scarves, which includes 20 scarf projects.

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.

Shirred Scarves

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!

Fringed Folly

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

Last year 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.

Last week, you voted for the S-Curve Scarf. But I must admit, the 20-minute scarf came in a close second.

Nancy’s Corner

Terry Grahl, founder of Enchanted Makeovers, was a Nancy’s Corner guest two years ago. Terry told us the story of how volunteers give women’s and children’s shelters facelifts with fabric, paint, and a little elbow grease. This is an amazing story; I know you’ll enjoy the interview with Terry.
