A Journey Begins
The inspiration for a ‘design your own scarf’ activity came to me in 2013 after stumbling upon digital fabric printing. It was a simple idea: women and girls (& boys too!) would create designs through a fun, hands-on experience. Their art would be printed on fabric and turned into the final product — a fashionable scarf made from their fun-art design.
I was sure there had to be a similar concept already in existence. After all, I myself — along with the many women and girls I shared my idea with — loved the concept and were eager to make a scarf of their own. So there had to be something out there already, right? But there wasn’t. Bringing this concept to life became my burning passion. I was determined to make my vision a reality while working full-time as an event director.
The concept seemed simple enough but little did I know that it would take me 3 years to put all the pieces together to make the scarf product I had envisioned in 2013. And today, I am still trying to figure things out! It's a journey for sure.
What are you willing to sacrifice to make your dream come true?
In my case it was my bed. I purchased a fabric printer to figure out how to make the scarf product. I was living in a tiny one bedroom home with no extra space. So what’s a girl to do? I turned my bedroom into a workspace. Out went my bed — in went the fabric printer. I planned to sleep on my living room sofa but it was so uncomfortable that I ended up sleeping on the floor for over a year until I finally moved the printer into a small workspace a few miles from my home. By the way, I still live in that tiny home and still have that same uncomfortable sofa.
