Adelaide Brown Owls :: Jersey scarves

Even sunny old Adelaide gets a bit chilly over winter but sometimes a thick woolly scarf is just too much.  A fantastic solution to this fashion dilemma is a jersey scarf and that is exactly what we plan to make this week at Brown Owls. Recycle an old t-shirt that has seen better days, and create a light and soft scarf that will protect your neck from the cold but not end up feeling scratchy and hot.

All you need to bring is a t-shirt (old or new, it doesn't matter) and something to cut the t-shirt with (a rotary cutter is ideal but scissors will be just fine.)  If you have some stretch fabric at home that you'd like to turn into a scarf then bring that too, but make sure it is at least twice the width of the average t-shirt.  

If you'd rather just bring along your own project to work on then please do. We'd love to see you and you can always just watch what we are doing and then try it at home later on.

Where? The Box Factory, Regent Street South, Adelaide.
When?  This Wednesday 8th June at 7pm.
What?   Bring some supplies for a scarf or BYO a WIP that needs some love. 

We have a Facebook group now too so please join us there to be updated on any Adelaide specific stuff that is happening.
