This is a satin lei that I made for my daughter's graduation on June 7, 2008. I'm not sure if I'll ever make another one because it involved so much time and work.
It was very labor intensive. I had to cut the fabric into 2-inch strips by pulling the thread to make a cutting line. After the strips were cut, they needed to be shredded. I left a 1/2" of unshredded fabric down the center where I sewed a 1/4" running stitch. After sewing the running stitch, I pushed the fabric together and twisted it.
I started the lei in January and got done with it right before graduation in June.
