I added irridiscent ribbon, sheer organza ribbon, satin cording, white, gold-edged and glitzy rayon ribbons, and funny shiny ones…
What I really love about it is the sweet hand-made tatting that makes this piece stand out as an original, and definitely one of a kind.
It’s light as air, and easy to wear! No beads on the ends of this one… just a bit of fibery goodness for fringe.
And then I stitched this scarf using a pink polyester thread to secure all the ribbons, from edge to edge, and then switched to a silver metallic thread in between… for that ‘extra somethin-somethin’ sparkle that I like to put in all my sewing and quilting play. Just because… I can!
It does take a good hour or more to be patient… to wash out all that stabilizer, and gluey substance. But it’s worth it! It’s… bedazzlin’ I think!
And once in a while, while free-motioning, I took my needle to a bit of dance on the ice skating pond… swirling around and around, with the pink thread. And as a skater comes to a stop with a flourish of icy spray, I added a bit of silver metallic thread-spray for my own sparkly finish.
