Happy September! Wow, August just flew by, didn't it? Pretty soon, we'll be coming across the first day of autumn (September 23) and then the holidays attack. Hope you've all been saving up for Christmas - it's right around the corner. Eek!
Did you know that September is National Sewing Month? A proclamation in 1982 from President Ronald Reagan declared this “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.” What a great time to announce the newest item available in the Cozy Reverie Etsy shop: Handmade Scarves!
As a shop owner, I have to remind myself to be a few steps ahead of the seasons. This year, I've actually done it! Halloween greeting cards and now scarves! I'm so excited to announce that Cozy Reverie is now offering handmade fleece infinity scarves. They can be worn as one long loop, or looped around twice as a cowl scarf. These make it so easy to add color and style to your outfit of the day!
Not only are there fleece scarves in the shop, there are also performance knit scarves with fabric designed by yours truly! With my original designs, they do cost a bit more, mainly because it is my artwork being professionally printed onto performance knit fabric. Fancy, huh? Due to the current process, these are available as made-to-order only. Hopefully, they will become ready-to-ship in the near future!
This opens up the possibilities for customized scarves! How incredible would it be to give your best bud a scarf with their favorite quote printed on it? Or maybe even an illustration of them? This would be perfect for the holiday season! Plus, performance knit scarves work as an all-year-round accessory. I'm already sketching out ideas of the gifts I'm going to make.
Here are some ideas I already came up with:
1. Personalized Bridal Party and/or Wedding Gifts
2. Customized Holiday Gifts
3. Anniversary Scarf with the special date printed on it
4. Family Scarves for reunions
5. Team colors for special events
So many ways to make a scarf special and unique!
How would you customize your scarf?
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
