This 9"x27" rectangular silk scarf is a beautiful robin's egg aqua blue crinkle silk chiffon with details hand sewn in metallic thread.
The video shows how I pull 1 thread across the width of the fabric then cut along that line to get perfect 90 degree cuts.
100% silk chiffon is shear, lightweight, very soft to the touch and flows breezily with your movements.
This is how I made it:
First I cut perfectly straight perpendicular cuts using a fool proof time-consuming technique then hand finish the edges. I use contrasting thread to edge the scarf to enhance the handmade quality of the piece.
Next I hand stitched the design details using contrasting metallic thread colors of Sapphire Blue on 1 end and Peacock Teal Blue on the other end. This is a very tedious process and well worth it for the effect!
Hand wash in lukewarm water with a little liquid soap and lay flat on a towel to dry. Enjoy!
I appreciate hand made objects d'art and the old world style rarely found in America. I am influenced by great artists and designers and pride myself on developing original works of art that may be inspired by others. I never copy others. That would be beneath the true artist within. I hope my work inspires others to do what they love!
Art is Freeing
It allows a free flow of energy- from the Universe/God through the artist's hands into the finished product. You don't always know what the end result will be when you dive in wholeheartedly. I find this to be a thrilling experience. Art creates even more creativity... creation is a wonderful thing.
