I have noticed an abundance of Leafs merchandise at the second hand shops (coinciding with a historic losing streak). This repurposing project has been in my mind for awhile. I wanted to make a hockey jersey for my daughter’s doll, but the NHL does not license patches for sale. Solution: a fan scarf! Fan scarves are generally less than a few dollars at the thrift shop and during a losing streak you might be able to get one for free. This scarf is from 2013 and was $2. It has two patches.
I then carefully cut out the pattern pieces using the Scientific Seamstress knit top pattern. (Instead of a hemmed edge, I used ribbing.)
It worked perfectly. She is carrying my dad’s vintage Leafs stick signed by Howie Meeker.
Hope is very pleased! Happy stitching!
