After a long unsuccessful search, I was unable to find any nice silk to make the coif out of....until this morning. I opened up my craft caddy by the door to look for an embroidery pattern book and found a grocery bag tied shut and inside the bag was about three plus yards of white raw silk. I know that raw silk may not have been the choice fabric but as im doing this on a tight budget, Ill take what little "presents" i get. Im using this silk for frugal's sake. :)
Pics later today, after a drive to a friends house.
