Boro Scarf

In December Melanie Testa began her Rockstar Boro. She explains it here. Originally a boro was a repaired and stitched Japanese indigo garment. Melanie is using this method to decorate her red velvet jacket.

Deborah joined the boro stitching party with an old t-shirt she is turning into a scarf. See her last post here.

I have a collection of green felted wool and cashmere sweaters. I bought a pair of green silk pants from a thrift shop and used the silk fabric as a base to stitch pieces of wool for a scarf.

I placed the softer cashmere at the neck.

The swirl on the left is the felted cuff from one sweater and the flowers are made from the hem tape from the silk pants.
