Twelve Days of Handmade Christmas - Day 3: Linen Scarf

The third in our series of Twelve (non-consecutive) Days of Handmade Christmas from The Drapery. Handmade Christmas gifts are thoughtful, cost-effective and kind to the earth. And they're just as rewarding to give as they are to receive.

Linen Scarf

We have featured these linen scarves/cowls on our blog before and they continue to be a popular option for gift-giving or a simple handmade accessory to keep for yourself! For Christmas we have made up these kits that contain all you need:

KIT -  $20 
Contains 40cm x 150cm washed linen, ball of Valdani perle cotton, hand sewing needle, instruction sheet.

In an hour or so of relaxing hand-stitching, you can have a beautifully drapey linen scarf which can be worn loose or doubled around the neck.

We love the look of the hand-stitching with perle cotton but, if you're pressed for time and would like to get a few of these whipped up for gifts (teachers? sisters? friends?), they also look fabulous simply stitched on the machine. So if you don't need the whole kit, we can cut your selection of washed linen in store.

Or how about giving a kit as a gift? Anyone who can thread a needle and make a simple stitch can make one of these scarves.

Sew, sew, sew... it's Christmas time! (Sorry...)
