Wrapped in Silk


Click on the photo for a closer view, as this wrap is cream on cream. It's made of jacquard silk, with added laces and ribbons and covered with net. I've quilted it with a leaf pattern. This is a gift for my friend Bronwen, and because she likes nice things in neutral colours, I am making this a very classy wrap. I'll trim the loose hanging edges of fabric, and maybe even sew around the edges. Then I'll have to find a toning fastener for it.

Then I'm going to use the same technique to make a clutch purse. What do you think? Would YOU use a silk purse ? Give me your thoughts.

Definitely - for special occasions.
The wrap is fantastic, especially the close up detail - I can see this going down a treat for bridal accessories.

These wraps are beautiful Shirley and just right for a special occasion. I have spent this evening catching up on your blog and now feel I have got to know you a bit better. I've enjoyed your sense of humour and your sweet dogs not to mention all the beautiful sky photos. Be good to yourself this weekend. x
