  • Fabric Painting on the Go: How to Make a Scarf Souvenir

    When I look at on Instagram, I can tell at a glance the photos posted by fiber artists: they almost always convey texture or pattern.

    When I make small fiber art projects such as prayer flags, I usually start with a vintage textile like a linen napkin or a salvaged piece of a worn-out quilt as my base.
