The idea for one of a kind wearable art shawls using vintage embroideries and needlepoints has been germinating for awhile, and just now bringing it to fruition. I have made some one of a kind wearable art coats but they are limited as to who they will fit. Shawls are one size fits all.
Here are a couple of firsts of the series. (There were many throw it in the trash moments trying to figure this all out.) The final pattern is 66" long and 30" wide. Add a couple of inches to this one with the pom pom fringe. The focal point here in this folkloric shawl is a huge vintage needlepoint piece found in a shoppe out in Lancaster PA, coupled with fabulous folk art bark cloth.
