In mid-September I posted about my studio challenge to design one of a kind artistic stoles at a more modest price point than my current work. The solution must maintain the standards of construction that I use for the rest of my work.
After I selected fabric from my inventory, I prepared each selection to be painted with an existing motif from my collection. Stencils, screen prints, and simple masking are all put to use. The second photograph show the five stoles after the paint dried. The next step is to hang them on the design wall for evaluation. Is there enough pattern? Contrast?
My daughter and shop partner challenged me to have six stoles priced at $75 in our Etsy shop, fibergig, by October 15. I do not want to disappoint her.

This will come as no surprise: I’m crazy about the green one.
I have made more green stoles than any other color. I am glad you like this one. Sometimes I struggle to come up with fresh ideas for green.
These look fabulous
Thanks, Jennifer. Finished results will be posted soon.
