Two Days in the Studio and Four new Scarves
Yesterday I dye painted silk ribbons to use in making some new wayward threads scarves. I also had lengths of torn muslin fabric strips that I purchased with stamped images that I added dye to with a paint brush to make them look aged. I like the look of tea dyed fabrics but tea doesn't always last through wearing and washing. I used dye to insure the color will last and randomly painted the dye so the fabrics look vintage. I was able to lay four scarves out, ready to be sewn.
This morning I woke to a blustery and rainy day that never let up. Cool, damp, and dreary, the perfect weather to be inside creating. I sewed the scarves today and painted some more ribbons.
I'm showing a few photographs here and in the next day or two plan to photo more ribbons and begin listing them in my Etsy shop. I'll be back to post when I do that.
