Well, it's not your everyday clothing, but I thought this was the best place to post!

My friend is being made a deacon in the Church of England this summer, and I wanted to make her a stole to celebrate this.  A stole is the scarf-y thing that priests and deacons wear, and you get them in different colours depending on what liturgical season it is.  I decided on green, as that's the colour for the church's Ordinary Time, which takes up most of the calendar - I figured she'd get most use out of it.





I made my friend two different stoles, with different patterns, widths and lengths, so she could choose which she liked best - she chose the one with just the waves.   I used a linen/cotton mix, with cotton batik fabric for the waves, and I attached them with bondaweb and then densely stitching the edges with a zig-zag stitch using metallic thread.

And she loved it!  Hoorah!

These are beautiful. 
When I was little our associate pastor had a stole with fringe on the ends and we would all play with it during the children's sermon so she had to get a new one...
