Textiles Wrap

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to show you a textiles wrap I finished last week. I love all the shawls and wraps on ravelry but unfortunately my yarn stash is a bit sad looking and mostly icky acrylic so I thought I'd sew myself something instead.

This wrap is made from layered bits of fabric- most of it recycled from old clothing.

I'll see your "wow" and raise you a prefacing "Oh!"

melted_rachel This is dynamic and beautiful! Did you have an idea of what you were going for, or did you just go and see where it would take you?

:D Thank you!

I started with a vague idea- I had a felt piece I made and I wanted to use the colours in that- the shape was just a simple shape I figured a wrap should be and then I hunted around in my fabric stack and then let it tell me what it wanted to look like.

Thanks! :D The fabric is so stiff I was worried that it wouldn't work so well but it means it holds a great shape and makes it stick out like that.

That's glorious.. what is it like to wear? Can you keep it on without holding it?

Thanks! You can keep it on with a brooch holding it closed- all the ruffles along the edge seem to help it stay on above your elbows- hope that makes sense. It's quite stiff and thick- probably better for Autumn than Summer.

Gorgeous. I love the sense of movement the circles have.
