Crafty and creative readers, I need your help.
I have a good bit of leftover raw silk. Yes, what you see in the image below. I needed to buy that beautiful silk in two colors to cover the mat for a huge wall hanging I got in India. Because otherwise, the seams in the mat would show.
But the silk. It wasn’t cheap and I would love to do something with what remains.
It’s not really enough for a blouse or skirt.
I have enough table runners or covers, so not a table cover.
I probably have enough throw pillows, too, although I did think of that.
It’s raw silk, and I don’t have a super-formal house.
I do not sew clothes or have a sewing machine. I can hand stitch a bit, as in making catnip toys and the like, but don’t ask me to make something someone actually has to wear, especially if it requires machine or even super-neat stitching.
I wish I were, but I am not inherently crafty. I don’t see a toilet paper roll and instantly think of covering it with yarn and making a spoon holder out of it.
But I do see that beautiful raw silk and think, I’d really like to do something with it. Or have someone else do something with it.
So, if YOU are a crafty person and can give me some ideas? I would be forever in your debt. If it’s a cool enough idea and I can’t do it, I might engage someone else to do it. But all the better if I can hand-stitch, hot glue or wrap it myself.
