Tiny Bits of Silk



bookmark made from Dupioni silk scraps


I received a few bits of silk scraps in a bag of yummy fabric oddments. I almost, almost swept the silk bits into the bin because they were so teeny tiny.

Then I thought of a friend that loves silk and has been having a bit of a rough time lately. What to do with those tiny scraps?

How about a bookmark?

Made using a heavy-weight double sided fusible inside and stitched the pieces on wherever they would fit. Each seam was finger pressed and then I used decorative stitches on my sewing machine to embellish.

Miracle of miracles, I had a matching Sulky thread that was just perfect for what I wanted to accomplish.

Some stitching detail. This kind of project is always so zen for me!

In an effort to spread a little love around this week, I will give giving a free magazines from my stash to 5 different readers!
