In an effort to use what I had on hand, I selected silk that I thought went will with the oliver twists that I already had and I came up with the following combinations.
The inside of this one has a commercial print that looks like a screen print. A friend told me it reminded her of a willow tree.
This silk is crosswoven with lavender in one direction and turquoise green in the other so it changes color as you move around it. Again, the inside is lined with one of my hand dyes.
Finally, this one is also cross woven with hot pink and emerald green. All of the vases are approximately 8 1/2 inches high and 3 1/2 inches on each side.
This was a fast project adapted from the Fast, Fun and Easy Fabric Vases book that I purchases a while back. If they sell great, if not I am sure they will make great gifts or will be a functional place to hold my paintbrushes and rulers.
Thanks for checking out the blog. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
