I'm back tonight with a little more from The Drapery. As a lovely surprise, The Drapery girls also sent me a Linen Scarf Kit from their store to try out. This kit is a super simple sew and the end result is a stylish and warm circle scarf (cowl). The kit includes absolutely everything you need to compete the cowl - yep, even the needle! It would be a great portable project to take away with you on a little holiday.
I love a bit of hand-sewing on the couch when I'm watching telly, and this scarf is completely sewn by hand! Of course, if you are a bit impatient or don't want to sew by hand, you can make the scarf on the sewing machine and it would probably take you less than 15 minutes from start to finish!
I personally prefer the hand-stitched look. The contrast thread shows up in little irregular stitches on the cowl and gives it some interesting detail.
Not only is the cowl lovely to look at, it is also so, so warm. The one I used is made from a washed Lithuanian double-sided linen and is really soft and not at all itchy.
The Drapery is giving away TWO LINEN SCARF KITS to two lucky winners! The kits are valued between $20-$25. Simply leave a comment on this blog post to be in the running! Entries close Sunday 16th March. Please leave an email address with your comment.
