    Silk

    My bosses son is in China right now and sent us photos of a great silk shop asking if anyone would like him to bring some back for them to let him know. It is so beautiful so hard to pass up, but I have to have a reason to purchase some, what shall I make?

    Heavier silks could make a duvet cover. Or a nice jacket for dressier wear.

    Light weight silks drape so beautifully that they could be used for anything.

    Smallish amounts with suitable lining can make lovely evening bags, you can make scarves and silk flowers with some. Maybe slip cases for jewelry, glasses, cellphones.

    I've made decorator kites that I never intended to fly with silk remnants. Also recovered an old bamboo folding fan.

    Silk pjs are great, silk camisoles are delicate but warm under winter clothes. A silk dressing robe or silk shawl.

    Plain silks can be painted on if you have that talent. Batiked silk is lovely.
