Scarves – the Perfect Holiday Gifts

Summer is upon us so this may seem like a very strange post!  But, in a quilter’s world, Christmas is just around the corner!  They are already looking for patterns for quick, easy gifts that they can have on hand.  And these are simple projects that are great mother/daughter classes for summer.  How much more meaningful are teacher gifts if the actual student is involved!

They won’t want to just make one of these – they will make them by the dozen!  All it takes is a sample – and these can be whipped up in a matter of minutes…

Infinity Pocket Scarf

This one is due to hit the door any day.  It features a hidden pocket that is a great place to stash a cell phone and those essentials – cash and credit cards.  You can make the pocket out of fabric or re-purpose a back pocket from a man’s dress pants.

Item #IJ968  Retail $9.99

Twisty Twirly Scarf

This one is simply charming – and is fast and easy with the Cuddle fabrics on the market!  Check out our selection at:  http://www.checkerdist.com/products/fabrics/?v=S364

Item #MMM0050  Retail $6.00

Wrapability

A shop owner was sporting this one at Checker one day and we all fell in love with the hooded version.  I am sure the other versions are just as adorable – three scarves in one!

Item #ABQ150  Retail $11.99

Inessa Jane
One yard of fabric makes one scarf – but it can also be made with two coordinates….  These patterns are so reasonable that you can kit the fabrics with the pattern and offer the package at a reasonable price.

Item #VRD780110  Retail $2.00

Circle Scarves

Make two different variations of this scarf.  Batiks, wool, or fleece give the finished product a totally different look……and feel!

Item #IJ878  Retail $9.99

Love of Quilting Chenille Scarf
This scarf works best when it is made out of homespuns since they are reversible.  We have a great selection of Dunroven fabrics that would be great for these:  http://www.checkerdist.com/products/fabrics/?v=D840
Item #CS-P  Retail $ 6.95
North Bay Accesories
This scarf has a more tailored look.  I love the button accents.  I can picture this as the perfect companion for a dress coat.  Or for a sports enthusiast, this can keep them warm without getting in the way.

Item #GC2535  Retail $12.00

Why not make a display featuring the scarves – and the fabrics that work best for them!  Finally you can offer a class where they really WILL go home with a finished product!
