So, what could I be making? I saw a sort of shawl like thing on a mannequin in a store window in Sapporo a while back and have been thinking about it ever since. It was bright and open and made up of circles. I don’t know if it was an actual garment for sale or if it was just window dressing, but I liked it. In Hokkaido, you have to wear a lot of thick, warm, functional, dull garments because it’s winter for such a long time. I want to make a shawl of bright open colorful circles. We’ll see how it works out.
I tried out two different sizes of yo-yo’s for the circles, using my scrapbooking circles. I decided on the smaller size, even though it means I’ll need more circles. My rough guess is that I’ll need about 350 circles, maybe more. I have cut 300 so far.
I’m not done cutting circles, let alone making up the yo-yo’s and I’m already thinking about adding beads and other embellishments.
