Polyester + Cotton Detail


  1. are you worried about the shrinkage difference between the 2 fibers?

  2. the finished piece is only about 22 X 30" and is destined to be hung and not used - otherwise it would be an issue. the burgundy fabric is from an old tie - I am actually thinking it may not be poly, maybe silk or some blend? It definitely did NOT like being cut - I have heavily stitched that seam and will most likely cover and/or reinforce that are a bit more just to be safe...
