I was commissioned to make this shawl wrap for a friend who is getting married. It needed to be orange and whimsical. I experimented with what I secretly call "messy applique" - the pieces are stitched on with loopy, multiple stitch lines and the raw edges all hang out. It has a fresh look that I'm falling in love with, although it was not as fast or simple as I thought it would be.
I am, however, pleased with this wrap. I had three days to execute it and that included shopping for the fabric with children in tow.. . children who are starting to catch on that the fabric store is a "treat" only for mommy.
