Sari shawl

Finally found a use for some of the sari fabric that I bought (shown here).

I've been looking for an orange scarf or shawl for ages and just happened to see one in a charity shop yesterday. I'm not sure what it's made of but it's beautifully soft. Here it is before I gave it a makeover.



However, I didn't like the tassels on the ends so I thought I'd cut them off and use the sari material to add a bit of interest. This is the result.



It took much longer than I expected. The material is quite difficult to work with as it's all very fine silk. Really pleased with the result though. It's my new favourite thing.
