Does anyone know where I could find a blue and white striped silk?

Jeff,

I think that will be tough to find. However, it is easy enough to make your own with a sharpie pen.

Bob,
Thank you for the response...I've searched everywhere and I did think of a sharpie as last resort.

Jeff777 (I gave you an extra 7, heck, it didn't cost me anything....

Did you check out the multitiude of thrift shops in the mile high city?

It was a 'habit' I got into on the road. Check in the ladies scarves 'department'. I have even found RICE silks in these stores. Obviously, it's not worth a whole day to go shopping, but if you happen to drive by one, stop and look.

Dick,
I have checked out thrift stores and can't find any. I have found some great silks at them through out the years.

How big are you talking about? It might be willing to tackle it. It would be hand painted.

The easiest way to do this on your own would be to use a white silk put in a frame then use a fabric marker not a sharpie to color the silk.

I would recommend that you use painters tape to create the stripes as well as to prevent uneven lines.

The problem I have found with "fabric markers" vs a real Sharpie pen (not other brands) is that "fabric markers" tend to make the silk stiff.

I'm looking at an 18" silk...I already have a white one that I might try and color.

Never had that happen to me maybe it is the brand of fabric marker you are using. never had the silk become stiff.

either way a sharpie or a fabric marker will get the job done.

I only suggested the fabric marker as you can get several options of color. even shades of blue where as the sharpie is pretty much DARK blue only.

good luck

At an art store you should find about three dozen colors of Sharpie Pens.

Jeff77:

Depending on your needs, such a silk "Piece" might be available if dissected from an already existing MisMade Flag Set..........

Check this link for an example of a flag silk which contains a blue and white striped flag (yes the flag has contrasting color stars but just MAYBE that part can be removed)..........food for thought ....

Great Idea!

I just checked it out with a 24" Blue stripes only flag. Finished size would be 16" x 12".

(As you may or may not know, we no longer print 36" flag sets on good silk in China.)
