“This feels good! What is it?”
“But it is not slippery. It feels so soft.”
This conversation was repeated at every 2014 craft market where I sold my L-shaped wraps. This week the light came on in the connection closet of my brain. Why am I not making scarves from raw silk? And here they are! Prototypes with colorful dye and paint and also an elegant interpretation with black paint on the neutral silk.
I use a small 1 inch fringed hem on the short ends to create a soft edge without fussiness; the long sides are double turned and stitched. They measure approximately 17 by 70″. A raw silk scarf can become an all season star: tucked under a coat collar, tossed over shoulders as a wrap, or twirled to create a spectacular neckline.
They are not yet on the market, but will appear early in January 2016. Look for them at Seeking Stars Art.
