Looking for a one-of-a-kind winter accessory to keep you warm? Panoramic Properties suggests you make your own scarf to wear this winter. With today’s post from the blog team, get started on a do-it-yourself scarf project that you can work on in the comfort of your Thorold apartment.
Knit a scarf
Whether you are a knitting expert or a novice, there is a knitting pattern for you that is as complicated or as simple as you would like. Browse the web to learn or refresh your knitting skills. You will need to have knitting needles, yarn and a pair of scissors in order to make your very own scarf.
T-shirt and skirt scarves
Put your closet to use and create a chic scarf using a favourite t-shirt or skirt. If you don’t have any of your own clothes that you’re done wearing, you can also find beautiful gently used clothes to transform at a local secondhand store. One option is Community Care Thorold Thrift Shop (19 Albert Street West). This volunteer-run store raises funds to help local families in need. Best of all, this store is only a three-minute walk from Front Street (40 Front Street). Once you have your piece of clothing, follow a simple skirt tutorial or t-shirt tutorial to cut and create your new scarf. Many of these patterns do not require any sewing.
Easy infinity scarves
Infinity scarves are a very popular style of scarves today. You can make your own infinity scarf simply by using a piece of leftover material, such as chiffon. After you lay out your material, all you need to do is fold and line-up the frayed edges so that they can be sewn together.
Where to find your craft materials
Now that you’ve begun to brainstorm what type of do-it-yourself scarf you will make, you will need to find some supplies. If you are looking for yarn or fabric, the locally owned Modern Bee (1507 Niagara Stone Road) is a great place to go. This shop, located in neighbouring Niagara-on-the-Lake, sells a wide variety of cotton fabrics and yarns, as well as books, patterns and tools. The store is a fifteen-minute drive from Front Street.
