The projects themselves are broken down into three chapters: wear, flaunt and decorate. As you'd expect, wear is all about clothes and includes some cute fashions for both adults and children. There are simple projects like the embellished t-shirt and more complicated projects like the boho chic skirt made from layered exotic scarves and the ruffled camisole. Each project contains pictures of the finished item, written description, list of needed supplies and when necessary templates. There are ten different projects in the wear section.
The Flaunt section contains a variety of accessories like feather earrings, belts, a clutch, embellished scarves, a cute handbag, a stuffed bunny, hair accessories, a sling, knotted scarf and more. Again, there is a wide variety of projects for different skill levels. The earrings are fairly basic and should be simple enough to create with limited skills. The felt cap is among the more difficult of the projects. There are eleven flaunt projects in this chapter.
My favorite chapter is the Decorate chapter. It contains a bunch of cute projects you can create to decorate your home including window panels, reversible lap quilt, jewelry caddy, napkin rings, a dressy lamp shade, and more. I fell in love with the cute window panels and decided to make that one myself. The directions were very simple to follow even with my limited sewing skills. This is a great way to repurpose scarves you already have or you can go on a treasure hunt to find new ones to use. This book will definitely inspire you to use them up!
