Your Pleatin’ Heart

“If at first you don’t succeed, Try, try, try again.”
Thomas H. Palmer

Well, hello, ladies! It’s Sunday, which means that we’ve got another spectacular Challenge of the Week gallery to share with you all! For many, this was the most difficult challenge yet, however, each and every one of us truly made it our own and EVERYONE shined!

Despite the technical skill required, practicing the art of pleating can feel overwhelming to some. Learning which scarves work best and how exactly to place each fold takes time and persistence- an ability that rarely comes naturally. However, even if you don’t feel like a master pleater today, that doesn’t mean that you might not become one tomorrow! Experimenting and learning new techniques in can teach us so much and actively contributes to improving our skill levels over time. Try to think about it that, the next time you find yourself struggling with a new wrap or scarf!

Thank you ALL for participating in #wrapunzeledinpleats and don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post for the announcement of next week’s challenge!

 

For this week’s theme, we’ve chosen a color that’s beloved my many. One of the colors of Tu B’shvat and one that is inspired by the trees! During this time of year, many have to look long and hard to find its presence in nature… Have you guessed it yet? Check out the reveal video below to find out!

 

 

Would you like to be featured in next week’s collage? Head on over to the Wrapunzel Fangroup and share your pictures using the hashtag #wrapunzeledingreen. If you would also like them featured on next week’s blog post, make sure to also post them in the comments on the pinned post at the top of the Fangroup page, so we know to share them. We can accept up to 5 headshot-style photos per person – no collages, please! If you’re not on Facebook, you can also email your pictures to us at wrapunzelthestore@gmail.com with the subject line “Challenge of the Week.” Can’t wait to see what you create!!

  1. Well I was one of the ‘challenged’ people this week…LOL. By Shabbat I was feeling like a complete klutz at my inability to do even a simple pleat…they kept slipping. Then I was inspired, and stuck a sock in my signature volumizer ( I have virtually no hair). Suddenly it all changed! I just needed an extra anchor…duh.

    Your wraps are stunning as usual, thank you for sharing 🙂

  2. That looks quite difficult, but the results are amazing!
    And the next colour of the week makes me happy! No colour makes me as calm and joyous and serene as green – and now you gave me an excuse to wrap in it all week 🙂
    When sending pictures to your mail address, till when do you need them? Is it still Thursday?

  3. Wow! Those pleats are gorgeous! I might try and go for the new challenge. I like scarves better on other women’s heads than on my own, but green is my favourite colour…(even if I don’t do anything myself, I look forward to seeing the other ladies’ wraps.)

  5. EVERYBODY looked stunning – very well done! I really love the tails on the wrap of the lady with the oxygen mask – it looks like it fan out and I like her color combination too! And her dog, wearing a “wrap” too is just adorable – a real show stealer she was!
