Snakes on Ladders is my first piece using silk sari strips, my son suggested the name.
I buy over-dyed sari ribbon from Dale Rollerson (www.thethreadstudio.com). One of her techniques is blanket stitching the sari strips onto a base fabric. This created an interesting piece - but what to do with it?
After machine needle-felting the whole piece I still didn't know what to do with it.
So I cut some strips and some more, laid them on some woollen-mix felt and eventually came up with an arrangement that I liked.
