My Gift – Fiber Etched and Dyes Scarves

As I’ve said before I try very hard to at least make part of any gift I give – be it birthdays, holidays or the just-because reason.

This year was an exercise in extreme stress for me, so I really, really needed to unwind and do something I simply love.

I succeeded too.

Rather then blather on here, I’m going to give you the short story and just post the photos.

These are satin/silk scarves with fringes, the patterns were created with a devore’ or burnout process, the dyeing was done with a new dye (I’m still researching it to see if I can offer it here), that allowed me to created a two-color effect without losing my mind.

There are 12 scarves, each draped over a mannequin to better see the effect.  I cannot tell you how happy I am with them!

If you want to learn more about this ridiculously simple process just visit our Fiber Etch section – and if you want a jump-start into creating your first scarf, we have a great satin/silk scarf kit that even includes the Fiber Etch.

These scarfs really did make terrific Christmas gifts this year.. and sometime I’m even going to remember to make one for myself!
