Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
For most people, scarves are fashion accessories to cover head or neck, but they can function as gift wrappers, belts, hat embellishments, or home-decorating accents. This book on designing, wearing, and decorating with scarves delves into techniques for edging and embellishing purchased scarves as well as for fashioning one-of-a-kind scarves using rubber stamping, ribbon embroidery, stenciling, and dying and painting techniques as well as weaving and knitting scarves. Packham assumes that the reader already knows his or her craft and consequently offers more inspiration than detailed instruction. Recommended for public libraries.
