I continue to work on my Painted Hankie Scarves. Today I sent four off in the mail and have one or two more to mail out tomorrow. I’m still filling orders and continue to get more.
I started working with and around some of the embroidery that is a part of the hankies. Instead of pretending it’s not there, I allow it to influence my designs. I also started using some dry brush painting on them. It adds another texture.
Soon I’ll have to look through my fabrics to find more backing fabric. I’ve just about used up the original pieces I chose for the scarves. The scarves are just under or just over 70 ” long, so I have to consider the length of the fabric I choose as well as the color and design.
I like the backing to have the same feel as my scarves without competing with it. Below is one of the scarves I made today.
