1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Nov. 12 2011
I was hoping that this book would give me some useful ideas for the dozens of scarves I've collected over the decades, but the ones in this book are pretty unexciting, especially if you don't want sundresses or skirts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dozens of projects to inspire your creativity! July 12 2011
By Ellen P. Lafleche-christian - Published on Amazon.com
Craft Challenge: Dozens of Ways to Repurpose Scarves is a fantastic how to guide that will inspire you to create dozens of stylish projects using a variety of different types of scarves. The author introduces you to the basics of scarves including the wide range of fabric types. She encourages readers to transform something old and transform it into something modern and hip. Scarf styles included in this book are vintage, Vera Neumann, winter woolens and flowing silk scarves. She also explains the various sewing notions needed for the projects in this book including a sewing machine, thread, cutting tools, needles, pins, fabric markers and more. There is also a very handy section on the various hand sewing stitches, embroidery stitches, and machine stitches used in these project and information on making buttonholes. There is also a guide to simple sewing techniques including clipping corners and curves, making a hem, making a casing, making bias tape, making ruffles, binding an edge, mitering a corner and French seams. The information in the beginning of this book should easily be enough for someone with basic sewing skills to tackle many of these projects.

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas..but... Sept. 23 2012
By Natural Woman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered the Pillow Case book with this and am still searching for the Tea Towel one. I was 'not' as pleased with this book due to the repetition of pictures and 'few' projects..Seemed that this was more of an 'advertisement' for the woman who made these items, instead of 'ideas' on what 'we' could do. The Pillow Case book had more items to make along with beautiful pictures helping us to 'expand' on 'our' creativeness.

This is another great book from Lark Crafts. It has 31 projects in different categories. Very much like the one for tea towels and the pillow cases. I really like those too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I thought it would be... Aug. 9 2013

There was only one or two projects they showed that I thought was worth pursuing. The book seemed outdated to me.
