Creative Scarves book coverHello Beadphoria Friends! I know that we usually talk about beading and jewelry making on this blog, but sometimes it can be nice to stretch our creative wings and try another craft, especially if it is another way to adorn your neck.

The book Creative Scarves by Tiffany Winsor, Heidi Borchers, and Savannah Starr is  full of 20+ different styles that range from easy to difficult. I liked the fact that they included some designs using pre-made scarfs that are altered, for those of us that may not be proficient in sewing. IMG_4554 One of my favorite features of the book is that there is a whole section just on how to tie the scarfs. How cool is that?!

IMG_4555There are also several projects that do include beads. Bead Bumps uses organza fabric, beads, and rhinestones to make a flowing bedazzled scarf.

IMG_4557Fancy Yarns uses large hole beads to complete the look of this easy to make yarn scarf.

The book is nicely divided into seasons, but you will find yourself inspired to create a scarf no matter what time of the year it is. After reading this book, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to try scarf making, or those looking for some new ideas when it comes to scarfs.

To celebrate the book, Tiffany Winsor is giving away a signed copy of the book and a $100 gift certificate to Dharma Trading to start your creative journey! You can enter here. Also, click the button below to see what other have created from the book.

Happy Creating!
