Bring your friends and family a little warmth this COLD winter season, with their very own, one-of-a-kind, definitely made with love Winter Scarf (or gloves, and hats work too!) Peruse your local dollar store, or even the Walmart or Target in your area for low prices on winter basics. Then use your fabric scraps, pre-made appliques and embellies to jazz them up a bit, by adding a few personal touches. Start by raiding your stash and choosing fabrics, embellies, etc., whose colors, coordinate. Try using a variety of different prints and textures for a little bit of added interest! Now decide on a can draw it out on paper to create a pattern or you can simply move things about your article until you like the looks of it! Use Heat n Bond to adhere larger elements, like I have done with my lace applique, and a needle and thread for smaller elements such as flowers or butterflies. Once all of your elements are securely fastened then stand back and admire your work (and don;t forget a pat on the back for a job well done!) because you have just completed a beautifully handcrafted gift for someone special!

Amy this looks so doable, even for someone that doesn't really sew like me.
