Not many words today, just wanted to start sharing some pics. I have finally taken photos of the nuno shawls made back in February..
|Front view (all squashed together) You can just see the Indian chiffon pashmina I felted onto, its a shimmery chiffon & it looks really pretty the way it catches the light on all of the wrinkles and nobbles.|
Do you remember the dyepot goodies back in February?
Well you can finally see what I did with them :)
|I like the stripes on the inside. I guess this must of been a silk blend shawl, as the dye didnt take to the white bits but took beautifully to the rest.|
I actually really like both of these shawls. Im trying to be firm with myself and put the pink on in my shop... I keep putting it off cos I like it. I did find these very hard work, Im not sure if it was the fabric, maybe too densley woven? Or maybe just due to their size. I spent hours and hours - worked on each one over 3 days.
I have just purchased a beautiful silk chiffon sari in pinks & burgundy.. trying to decide what to make with it - another shawl? Some scarves? Or a dress (slightly more daunting prospect there as I have not made one before!)
