Kate, your shawl is totally cool!! I really like the "back" of your shawl too!
Ok, so you gotta see how weird this shawl is. I think it is so artys-fartsy. It was definitely a unique experience making this scarf, it did some things that I wasn't expecting. Like when the circles felted they popped out after the fulling and my husband said that they looked like nipples, so I turned them into craters instead. So I guess I wasn't planning on doing the shibori felting technique but I did (at least I think what I did might full under shibori). I don't know anyway here is it the weirdest scarf I have ever made!
Again I am being lazy and not uploading pics: https://www.etsy.com/listing/1053666...ap-nuno-felted
Enjoy the weird!
Love it! Actually it's reversible because both sides are wonderful. Had a giggle at the nipple thing!
Fabulous!!! how did you keep your circles so neat, did you make them before you put them on the silk?
So here's a little update: I sold this scarf yesterday and while it was in my shop it was always the most viewed item each day. SO my question is, do I make another like it, different colors and such, or do I let it stand as a one and only. I feel like if I were to reproduce it in a different color scheme I would be lessening its uniqueness. But on the other hand it was such a popular item I wonder if a similar scarf would be too and bring my shop lots of views... So there it is, what should I do?
If you didn't advertise it as 'unique' or 'one-off' then you are entitled to replicate it as many times as you wish. And if it draws customers to your shop and it's a 'seller', then what are you waiting for?
It's a beautiful design.
