k so i got a packet of ribbon when the sewing and craft fair was in phoenix. this is what i came up with. it turned out great. i dont have a final picture of it being worn yet...i haven't had the chance...i'll add that later. enjoy!

my sewing machine held up pretty well

close up of the just normal white thread running perpendicular to the ribbon. to keep the ribbon on the sulky paper i had sewn clear thread parallel to the ribbon.

finished but haven't rinsed the sulky

the most fun part! except it needed a second rinse the next day..the "glue" made it still a little stiff. soaked it in some fabric softener and it was ready to wear!!

hanging to dry

action shot to come!! thanks for looking.  Smiley

action shot and a close up

to clear it up. you have to sew all the lines first...when you are completely done sewing...that's when you soak it in water. Smiley

That is so beautiful.  This might be a silly question, but what is sulky paper?  And would you say that this project would be difficult for a beginner?  I absolutely love it.

Is sulky paper like water soluble stuff or something?  You put it in water and it disolves?  It looks really good!

yes, sulky paper is soluble. it feels like plastic-y when it's dry and purchased on a roll. i bought mine at joann's for like 25$. that will have enough sulky paper for 6 scarves about the size of the one i made. to keep the ribbon parallel and staying on the paper...that's where i sewed the clear thread..on top of each piece of ribbon to keep it in place. then i went back with normal white thread and went back and forth to hold all the pieces of ribbon together after the sulky paper is gone. then i put the whole thing in water. and voila! email me or pm me with any more questions. it's a great project for a first time thing. i finished it in about 2 hours and it's not hard at all.

i truely enjoy scarves (been collecting them for years and years) and this is one of the most beautiful, fun , elegant ones I've seen !!!  the best thing is ...I have a TON of ribbon!!!  yippee. now hopefully our Joann's will have that backing.  Question...did you use a mixture of ribbon types? or all satin, etc.?
