I’ve been invited to submit some samples of textile art for consideration to be sold at my community’s Sustainability Fair in a few months. This is a pretty big deal for me since a) I’ve never given my pieces to anyone except people I know and b) I’ve never charged for them. Eeep!
The criteria for submittal is that the pieces need to be made out of recycled/upcycled/vintage bits (seeing as we’re all sustainable and such), so I’ve decided to offer my upcycled scarves made out of old shirts. The question then becomes, what type(s) of scarves to make? I need to send in photos of my work in a few weeks.
So here are some possibilities:
Looped Jersey Scarf
Half-Looped Jersey Scarf (go here for more photos of how I wear it)
Braided Jersey Scarf
Shredded Oxford Shirt Scarf
Some Combination of Jersey and Oxford (I haven’t made this one yet, but there are images in my mind of how the two materials could be combined)
This is where I’m thrilled that people so much more stylish than me read this blog – what do you think? If you were my customer, what style(s) would catch your eye?
