I was given a bagful of scarves and would like suggestions for a really cool project. Not pillowcases or table runner, please.
Thanks for suggestions.

    Ive seen some people frame the high dollar designer ones that are very decorative.

    The thin material might make interesting fabric to cover a lampshade.

    ew the lightweight scarves them together end-to-end and braid or crochet them into: placemat, rug, blanket, etc. Donate the warm and large scarves that are large enough to nursing homes or the local mother's group. They work well for cold shoulders or knees, as well as a cover for nursing babies. If they are slightly stretchy (gauze, rayon, polyester or cotton) they might be the right size for swaddling a baby. They could be cut down or sewn together to measure 12" to 24" squares for children's blankies. You can modpodge them onto plain lamp shades or drape them through/around items displayed in your house. Hang sheer ones over a small window to provide privacy while allowing light to come through. Check online for multitudes of ways to wrap and wear them. Wrap them around your waist to jazz up a plain dress. Sew two together to cover a pillow form. Tack them around a window or door frame. Wrap them around a rounded wire hanger for a wreath. Roll a sheer one up against the rear seat car window to cut sun glare on your child's face. Modpodge one on door. Put one in a frame without the glass and use it to store jewelry. Good luck!
