  1. I love it, dear Suzi!
    You are such a needle-master and artist 🙂
    Thank you very much for giving my this lovely, lovely new & old (or is it old & new?) Hermès Cosmos Twilly silk ribbon.
    Have fun with your sewing and enjoy the heat today 😀 hahaha 😀
    Big fat hug and xxx 🙂

  2. Thank you Kiss&Make-up nad happyface313.
    Happyface it was pleasure to do it! BTW today I am doing exactly nothing, beeing thankful the air condition is on and doing a great job!:-)

    • Ahhhh, rada Te vidim. Ja take porad nestiham byt on line a vsude. Netusim, jak to delaji ostatni, ale ja bych nejradsi obcas vypnula vsechno jako PC, telefony, zadny mejly, instagramy atd. a proste jen tak zmizet do neznama..-)
      Usit Twilly z Hermès satku je radost.:-)

      • Bála bych se, že přistříhnu Pegasům křídla…já jsem hrozně nerozhodná, kdysi jsem taky šila, ale nikdy jsem se nemohla rozhodnout, jestli proužek rovně nebo svisle, pak mne napadlo že i diagonálně a obvykle to skončilo tak, že jsem látku o půlnoci odložila mokrou od mazání křídy a už se k ní nikdy nevrátila.
        Do hedvábí bych asi nestříhla nikdy…mám krásnou květovanou lehounkou látku na šaty, takové to šátkové hedvábí, tuším pongé, se to jmenuje. A pokaždé při úklidu ho přeskládám, zamyslím se, zasním se…a dám ho zpět do krabice. Já jsem švadlena-teoretik. 🙂

  3. Hi. I’ve been looking for a tutorial on making a twilly forever. I have a great scarf that I could turn into 5-6 amazing twillies. I am not so good with sewing so I have a few questions:
    1. How do you manage to draw and cut straight lines? I tried but the scarf keeps sliding, even [very] starched and pinned 😦
    2. Do you have certain dimensions? Or you just use a twilly you already have and add a 1cm border?
    3. Do you cut away the handmade border the scarf has, or open and iron it to gain space?
    4. Thanks for the silk paper mention. Didn’t know about it. Before turning the twilly inside out do you remove the silk paper? You just rip it?
    5. Do you cut any inside corners before turning it inside out? It would look a bit bulky otherwise, no?

    • Hi Oana, thank you for your interest. Will answer all your questions later this week . Don’t vorry, it’s not that difficult to make a twilly. It’s about patience only.:-)
      At the moment ver busy.

  4. 6. Where do you turn it inside out? Do you leave a space on the side or you don’t sew one corner and then do it by hand?

    Thank you very much 🙂
    Oana
