Everything old is new again

In Ireland I was teaching this method for making wraps. I love the vibrancy of the surface you can achieve. These wraps are super soft from the layout method. The silk is collected from op shops and my old scarves and shirts and friends now give me their favourite things that cannot make through another wearing. I love the idea of revamping these items and they can begin anew.

I love the way you used the magenta to tie all of the disparate colors together. It's really lovely!

HA! Pam, you are very lucky with so many friends who donate their thin silk pieces to you !!!
Well, the thriftstore sometimes has similar things (though not too often ;-( ....)

Wow, wow, wow! Just LOVE this. I've learned this technique and have made a few scarves, but a shawl for myself is on the list now thanks to your inspiration.
