I saw this headline on a style blog write up. EF stands for Eileen Fisher the designer and they offer this shibori wrap for $138 plus shipping. I dare say that much more inspired shibori scarves can be found without traveling to Japan for the same price. I’m just saying, if I traveled to Japan to find some inspiring shibori scarves and this is what I came back with, I’d be a little disapointed.
As I was ironing the ivory silk I thought it could make some lovely custom silk ribbon for someone. As it turns out, there is only 29 yards and I will probably have only 25 yards for sale. If I am doing custom work I need to have a little to play with and to make a sample for approval. So, with that thought in mind, I will be offering this 25 yards out for a custom dye job. Think bridal, bridesmaids, bridal bouquets, or how about evening wear gowns, silk sashes, or even a lovely silk binding for an art quilt? 25 yards ought to do it. I’m putting out the word.
aaah- Monday again and it’s off to visit the 4th grade classroom. Today we are working with found leaves, view finders and paint to create some macro abstract designs.
