Day 3: Integrating Fabric into your project


As we progress through building our prayer/intention flags, one has to wonder…is there anything you can’t do?

I’m sure there is a yes answer in there somewhere, but not when it comes to fabric. Materials of all sorts have been added to a multitude of projects, and for various reasons. I absolutely love to add them whenever I can. Today I am adding a piece of artist created batiks, a Sari ribbon, and a bit of lace. For those who don’t know what Sari ribbon is, it is a ribbon that has been created from old silk Saris (like the women from India where). Sometimes they are hand dyed after being assembled, but not always. It tends to be a very delicate fabric and needs to be treated with a bit of care, like any vintage fabric you may want to use.

The following video is short and a bit unclear in my opinion. I couldn’t seem to get the angle right with the camera in order to see around my sewing machine, so I apologize if it is hard to follow.  If you have any question, please leave me a comment and I would be happy to make it clearer for you.

I hope that your projects are turning out just as you envisioned…even if they aren’t, I’ll bet you discovered something unexpected along the way.
