I’m delighted to announce the official Creative Scarves Blog Tour featuring some of my coolest creative friends! Read on to learn all about this tour and giveaway which includes and autographed copy of Creative Scarves PLUS a $100. gift certificate for Dharma Trading – our fave source for plain scarves, fabric dyes and much more!
It’s time to show off your scarf style! In Creative Scarves, you’ll find 24 fashionably fun and incredibly easy design ideas created by Tiffany Windsor, Heidi Borchers and Savannah Starr that will help you make (or make-over) your own gorgeous scarves for every outfit, occasion and season. Add your own personal touch as you sew, stamp, stencil, dye, bead, paint and trim your way to a complete scarf collection. Featuring a “Favorite Ways to Wear” section, you’ll also find tips on wearing your own unique creations.
What sets a scarf apart as your own fashion statement is the ability to personalize it with your own creative touches. In designing this collection of scarves, I have focused on sharing creative techniques that the beginning hand-crafter can easily follow and that the hands-on craft enthusiast can build upon and personalize for one-of-a-kind results. Purchase your autographed copy here!
As fourth and sixth generation crafters, my sister Heidi and grand-niece Savannah and I have grown up in a very creative environment and have definitely lost count of the number of projects we have created for business and pleasure over the years. We grew up in a crafty space where everything was glued, so we enthusiastically embraced the creation of this collection where we could combine our sewing, stitching and crafty talents to create scarves for all seasons and occasions.
Scarves are definitely for all seasons and styles, so I’ve divided this book into spring, summer, autumn, winter and couture chapters.
This book was definitely a creative adventure for Heidi and me as we took on the task of photographing our step-outs ourselves and after hundreds and hundreds of shots, I think we have the hang of it!
I’ve been asked which scarf is my favorite and after careful consideration I have to say ALL OF THEM! When you go through concept, design, photography and everything that goes into making a book like this, each scarf takes on its own personality and holds special meaning for me and I would definitely wear them all!
I invite you please stop by and check out the cool creative inspiration at all of these blogs and be sure to leave a comment and let them know how delighted we and you are that they are joining in the Creative Scarves Blog Hop and Book Tour. AND, please tag your scarf projects with #creativescarves so that I can see your awesome creative work!
*My special thanks to my creative friend Lisa Fulmer who made this Hop happen!
