Five X Fifty: Day 13 – Fleece Fringe Boa Scarves

After making the Freaky Fleece Hats, I knew I would need to make scarves to go with them.  I saw a woman at one of the craft fairs wearing one that was just two strips of fleece fabric sewn together and cut every inch or so.  No attempt had been made to fluff it out or fancy it up, it just kind of sat there, looking unfinished.  I thought it was flat and boring and I knew I could do better!

My Fleece Fringe Boa Scarves are cut into individual strips and hand-tied together, so every single one is unique.  They measure approximately four and a half feet long, give or take an inch or two.  They can be made in any color combination with the colors in any order (though the hand-tied effect does jumble them together).  Perfect to wear to watch your favorite team play hockey or football!

My favorite team is the Oregon State Beavers, so I started off with one that’s orange and black.

One of these boas can be chosen as your free item for your $25 contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign.  And if you want to order one as a Christmas gift, please do so by December 18th (more FAQs about holiday orders here).

I have a bunch more Five X Fifty posts to get up this week (and all 50 actually planned out!) so keep an eye on this blog.  I’ll also be adding other items to my Etsy shop, such as the one of a kind necklaces and bracelets I removed to take to the craft fairs instead, and many more Simple Charm Necklaces and Earrings.  I really want to get as many items up before the 18th as I possibly can, so there will be plenty to choose from for you last minute shoppers! 🙂

Five X Fifty: Day 10 – Freaky Fleece Hats

I made all these hats today, and they turned out so awesome I just couldn’t wait to share them with you, so they’re moved up in the queue to be Day 10!

Winter is coming (already here in New England, if you ask me) and you’re going to need something to keep your head warm.  But why wear any old boring hat when you can have one of these?

You can show your punk rock attitude with this two-color mohawk hat!

It may be cold out, but you can’t really set your head on fire to warm up, so why not just make it look like fire?

And what do these monster hats remind you of?  Well, if you’re thinking along the same lines I am, then the answer is Muppets!  And what Muppet has crazy hair and a rock n roll attitude that is perfect for this hat style?  Animal!

I’m actually almost okay with it being so cold, just so I have an excuse to wear these.

And that’s Day 10!  I’m still ten days behind, but my husband will be using my laptop tonight to do his show for The Cape Radio, so I’ll just have to content myself with making more things instead.  Oh woe is me.

I have decided I’ll let you in on what I plan for Black Friday – Small Business Saturday – Cyber Monday, but that will be in a separate post, later tonight after the show.  Suffice it to say, if you can make a $50 contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign so you’ll have a $210 gift certificate to spend in my Etsy shop, you’re going to get a GREAT deal!  Even if you don’t have $50, your gift certificate for the amount of your contribution will go a lot further this weekend, and you still get to choose a free item!

I’ll explain more later, but I need to get offline soon, so I better hurry up and get this posted!
