A friend of mine recently had a baby girl, and I just had to make her a silk/flannel blanket. In my haste to give it to her I forgot to take a photo. Baby Zara's blanket has a 16 point flower mandala with a purple flannel backing. While I was making Zara's blanket, I also made one for a request on Etsy. An 8 point star mandala is dyed onto silk. The backing is a mottled orange flannel.
I thought I'd write a bit more about some of my favourite notions. Working with silk made me buy some nice glass head pins. I have these super sharp and thin pins from Clover. I love them. Although I don't love them when I stab myself with them. I even stepped on one the other night. OUCH!
A walking foot is useful too when sewing silk. It helps to keep the fabrics from slipping.
And using the right needle is important too.
