by the yard

by the yard showcases 25 artists who all had the same instructions:  using fabric create something that can be sold by the yard, at least 5 yards long.  so here's mine, pictured above:  i cut strips of organic cotton flannel, hand-painted each piece with water-based inks (including neons & metallics), braided them to fit as bracelets, then tied each bracelet together to create a colorful garland.  imagine decorating a party with this garland, and as each guest leaves they get to take a bit of the party with them - one of these colorful bracelets.  ti piace?
