f.o. friday: kimono silk & thai silk scarf
Project: Silk scarf
- recycled kimono silk purchased in Tokyo,
- Hand-woven Thai silk inherited from my grandmother, who purchased it in Thailand in the 80's. I strongly suspect it's from Jim Thompson.
- Vintage silk thread. It's generally not a good idea to use old thread like this for things like garments because it's really fragile, but I went for it anyway. I did remove three layers from the outside due to sun damage.
- Rayon yarn for fringe
Verdict: Really happy with how this turned out. I think it'll be great to wear this fall with a grey sweater and jeans.
Do you have any finished objects this week?
