I made this scarf for a dear friend who has breast cancer. If you're inclined to click on the image, you can see a much bigger version.
I designed it to be a power scarf. I put a lot of positive energy into it, and I'm hoping the boldness of color and all of the elements help her feel powerful.
It started out white, and first I dyed it fuchsia. Then I clamped CDs down the one side, because one, I like the pattern, and two, they look like breasts - don't you think? And then just scrunched and clamped the other side, so it looks like it has a long lifeline running down it. Next I overdyed it in a warm red.
Because she has spent so much time in Southeast Asia, I screen printed an Indian design that I particularly like on top.
Powerful? I hope so.
