This time I photographed it all crumpled up just for variety. This piece is 11 yards long by 45 inches wide. ELEVEN YARDS. This is getting big. I like these larger pieces although they take so very much longer to do. It's worth it in the long run I believe.

Today I finished up THIRTEEN YARDS of the brown satin bomaki. THIRTEEN YARDS. That is almost a four story building tall! It came out well. I'm not posting a photo of it since I posted one the other day. This is by far the most yardage I have ever done.

This bomaki piece is 6 yards long by 45 inches wide. This image is just a small part of the whole piece. Finally I am able to do larger size yardage. Hopefully somebody out there will want to make something out of it, or of some of the other yardage that I am planning on doing later this week. I've got my fingers crossed!

This shibori piece is also 4 yards long and it was folded then hand sewn into pleats then pole wrapped then discharged, washed, dryed and ironed out. It was a lot of work, but it was worth it in the long run. I think I spent upwards of 24 hours of hand work on just this piece. This photo only shows less than a quarter of the whole piece. I am trying to work on doing yardage, hopefully it will pay off!
As a bomaki goes, I was REALLY pleased with these two scarves. They are both quite long, about 4 yards, which makes them really fun to wear since there are so many ways they can be wrapped around your body. The fire-like tiger stripes are very dramatic.
