I originally turned her down- told her they were too small for anything I'd want to make. But, as adult children do, she left the bag at our house, for months.
I've been selected to be a contestant in the Fabric Mart Fabrics Fabricista Challenge. For my first Fabricista challenge, contestants were given the Scout woven tee pattern from Grainline studios. We were assigned the task of putting our own spin on it and make something that we would love to wear. As a dress wearing gal, I rarely wear tee shirts, so this really was a challenge!
I remembered the sari bag, and decided to take a look inside. If you are unfamiliar with saris, they are often about 5 yards long, and have a section that has an intricate design for the wearer to drape in the front. They do occasionally show up at thrift shops, and an intact sari is a great value for nice fabric.
Check back soon to see the final garment!
