Tacky doesn't really describe my stash, or my style. But I did have a small length of dyed top in bright colors that instantly reminded me of my wardrobe in the 80's (intense pastel button-down shirts with the collars turned up.. yikes!). I also had left-over fuschia firestar and what jumped out in my head was a memory of a cartoon called "Jem!"
I rented my LYS drum-carder to further blend some batts I had purchased online. When I was done with those I went ahead and created this batt. I broke the braid into its parts and then fed each one into the carder individually so that they would cover the drum evenly, and blend in-between. I also added a very healthy portion of sparkle.
