Embellishment Baraka

ott0001On Monday we went to Fabricland with the goal of finding shirred cotton to make a prayer skirt for my DD.  After walking along a trail for what seemed like many miles (although it was a pleasant walk) we arrived at the store to find — no shirred cotton.  It seems there is none on the island.

They had some polyester that had a thick shirred band running through the centre of the fabric.  But when I asked the clerk how to use it she said “I don’t know, I’ve never known anyone actually do anything with it!”

However I did snap up some silk Dupioni for the wallhanging project, and these over-the-top embellishments were buy one, get two free.  The cool thing about them is that they have holes drilled into them so no need for other mysterious gadgets to attach them to a piece.

  1. Hi Ruth
    Great find on embellishments.
    I wanted to see them up close and personal, but it seems wordpress does not allow you to click on images to enlarge. Sigh. Perhaps I’ll go for a visit to fabricland soon. Too bad about the shirred cotton. I sure have not seen any!
