New member with a Kimono question
My question(s): I want to make the baby kimono for a friend, but would like it to be totally machine washable. Would any of you happen to know if cloth-type ribbons (satin, etc.), will make it through the wash and dry? I figure to be safe, I could just make I-cord ribbons using machine washable yarn, but was wondering if there is a more decorative solution?
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for the complement! I used a bunch of leftover yarns from my stash. Mostly cascade 220, Morehouse Merino, and Noro Kureyon. There was a bit of Rowan Magpie and Lorna's Laces worsted too. I went for blue/pink vs red/brown.
I made two of the kimonos for my daughter (one month old today!) and I wish I had put a button on both the skinny front side AND poking through from the other side (next to the seam). The underneath skinny part (left front? I'm not looking at it) of the kimono has an annoying habit of squiggling out from under when actually worn by a wiggly infant.
I love your log cabin, it is beautiful.
