|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? 1/4 yd each of smokey and green patterned chiffon, Rayon thread to match the darker fabric. Pattern idea from Nancy Ziemen. 7 glass beads with large holes, 2 silver caps, 2 silver head pins, silver toggle clasp.
What are you most proud of? Being able to set up the serger correctly and adapt the pattern idea to the materials I had in my stash. It wasn't cut on the bias but still finished up with a soft edge which looks professional. I used some spare material to make a co-ordinating necklace using beads and fabric knots. ( Idea from Aga's class ) It made a lovely gift for my friend's birthday.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? The chiffon is very slippery to work with but if you hold it in front and behind the foot applying a little bit of pressure it sews like a dream. The pattern is called Double De-Light and is cut on the bias with shaped ends. I adapted the shaping to the material I had at hand. It is basically 2 scarves - 1 an inch or so bigger than the other, put the smaller one one top and sew down the center. It is a lovely effect.
