Silk Trimmings with Potential

As I once again was trimming the edges of my stacked bias silk pieces to create my Fabric Fur – this time destined for a surprise jacket for a friend – I decided to add them to my BAG of silk scraps.  For……….. another life?

Perhaps ‘trapped’ under nylon tulle and stitched over randomly as an interesting embellishment???  I’d better put a note in with this bag so if my DH decides to straighten out my corner of the basement – he doesn’t think this a bag of garbage!!!

Anyway – here is the next step after stacking 3/4″ bias strips and stitching down the center – then trim to an exact 1/4″ either side of the center stitching – then ATTACK with my Fabric Chenille Brush…and WALA – here you can see how I’ve couched yarn down the center of this trim – on a jacket.
