Up cycling is really in, and since scarves are also "in" then creating scarves is another great craft to sell for your craft business.
They are an affordable craft and can be decorated with different bling you have around your craft corner or using things from the dollar store. You can get t-shirts from the thrift store as well as your own closet. Keep in mind the wider the t-shirt the longer the scarf/necklace will be.
I like the idea of longer because then you can double it up as you will see in this video. There are many ways to create the infinity scarf but I found this video to be the best so far. The girls in the video added bits of leather and jewelry to personalize the scarf.
These would sell quite well. Try and find some nice neutral coloured shirts as well as bright colours so that they will please anyone who loves to wear lots of different bling around their neck. Wearable arts and crafts are really hot right now. Adding different bits of jewelry and decorations to each one makes them all unique which people love.
Gone are the simply "hang it on the wall" arts and crafts in my opinion. Customers want more for their shopping dollar, and they like unique and they like something they can use or wear. That is why soaps, jewelry and accessories are so hot right now. Check it out.
Infinity scarf from old t-shirts - really cool upcycle
Wearable art, and anything that you "up cycle" is really hot, and you don't even have to sew for this really easy project. You will get hooked on making these! The trick is too really stretch out each length. Once you have it put together, if you want to sell these at craft shows, then figure out a way to display them. You could use a manikin bust or hangers, but get them off the table and up and also make sure to wear one yourself.
Have many colours, and patterns and see which ones sell best. You can also sell these online as they are lightweight enough for shipping.
