Turquoise and Red for Summer POP!


My eye latched on to some fabric in turquoise with red stripes.  The colors seemed to capture the summer sky and sizzle of hot temps.  I thought it would make a very sweet mini wrap.

After much research, mostly on ways to maximize the warp stripe, I decided on a warp faced plain weave done in bamboo.  I added a few silver threads for sparkle.

The project was very quick to weave and finish in with a mobius twist.

The colors as shown in the warp photo are closer to the actual colors. (I am still working on my photo retouch skills). Cute and just right to warm the shoulders.
