Fold Over Shawl

This past weekend I attend another Genteel Arts workshop. This time was a fold over shawl. I drove out to Gettysburg after work on Friday and made it to Needle and Thread in time to pick out my fabric. It was a difficult choice; they had a lot of wools. Thank goodness because I could not find any wools in my area. I decided on these

The gold is really darker than what appears in the photo.

The shawl is comprised of a central square of a solid, which is trimmed with a print. The print is applied with two sides right side out and two sides wrong side out so when it is folded over the right side of the trim shows on both layers of the shawl.

The print is then trimmed with a band of solid, which is fringed.

Here are a couple of photos of my completed shawl, except for the fringe, and another from the class.

I really enjoy these workshops--spending the weekend learning, sewing and enjoying the company of other like minded people!
