Shown here is an item that I made with some of my raw silk (aka silk noil) that I also dyed. The colors are actually shades as a wee bit of black was added to tone down the brightness. I was looking for a more subtle palette. Not quite sure that I achieved that, but no fabric will go to waste in any case. Let me know what you think.
The flowers are raw edged and machine sewn on and embellished with embroidery floss hand stitched using simple stitching.
