    It's pretty basic, but yes.

    Alyria, you could probably even buy some ribbon and some fabric glue if you really wanted-no sewing required.

    This is my amazing Ubah shawl. I chose the backing fabric. It was a raising gift from my Ajah and I LOVE it. I wore it to AMoL signing and it got a compliment from Harriet herself!

    I actually won this in an Anni raffle. It was a complete coincidence that it was White. I wish I could remember who put this in the raffle or even which Anni it was where I won it, but maybe someone else can. :cheese

    I made this out of the remnants of the shawl fabric (which I forgot I had until I cleaned and organized my sewing cabinet a few weeks ago. Yay for organization!) I made it as a way to gain the Aes Sedai confidence when it's needed without looking weird wearing a long-fringed shawl around various places. Also, I like wearing things like that in my hair anyway, so win-win.

    Top is the Blue unity shawl, made by @Vivianna L'antreau (as far as I know, she's made all of them!) Light one on the right is my raising shawl, given to me at 5th Anni, I think made by Murin? Dark navy on the right is my "warm" shawl. It was premade, I added trim and flame. Andra helped. :) Tiny shawl was made by me for my daughter when she was about 6 months old. We went to meet Brandon and Harriet, so of course she needed a shawl. :D Blingy shawl underneath has no flame, but is shiny and fun to wear. My Warder has been known to steal it. :lol I've got some amazing fabric I want to make a shawl with that I've been saving for when I have "time." Its been 16ish years now. I want to make hand beaded fringe for that one.

    I am making a circular shawl. It started as a tablecloth. It's a green jacquard fabric. I just cut out space for my neck and the opening in front.

    I glued the flame in place, but it's not really sticking, so I'm going to sew it down and add a bead trim around the edge. I'm not sure yet what the inner fabric will be. I might make it a reversible shawl with the other side being a pretty Fall theme. The fringe will be held in place between the layers with velcro, so that I can remove it for washing. I'm waiting on a few supplies to arrive, but I will be putting it together by next week, I think.

    After that, I plan to make and "Irish" shawl, which is a rectangle with a slit cut for the front, up to the neck. The shape should give the fringe a nice up and down flow. I might make it a warmer fabric, so it can be a little more utilitarian. I'll post pics when each is done.

    These are all so pretty! I particularly love the Star Wars liner, and the epically subtle yellow on yellow. So awesome!

    Oh, and the fox. I love foxies!

    I love this thread, and all the shawls.:love
    I really wanted to make some wot shawls both for myself and some others.. So first I thought I want to crochet, cause it's warmer, then I thought maybe filet crochet and then sew on a frame of pearls around the symbol, what do you guys think? But I also wondered, is there a warder symbol?

    That sounds like it would take forever but be absolutely beautiful. I'd worry the fringe (if you intended to put fringe on it) could stretch it out of shape.

    Now I want to make one like that and attach it to some gorgeous contrasting fabric.

    :look

    Oooh I did not know that, I never made anything with fringes before..I definetly want fringes so I must ponder more on this..maybe I will just have to crochet a border instead..
    Oh yes! Crochet on fabric is so beautiful, I once made a christening gown like that, I would love to see it, if you make that shawl!

    It could definitely still work with fringe, it’s just something to be aware of.
    That sounds beautiful for a christening gown!
