Hot House Flowers
I've noticed that some of the artsy spinners were incorporating dyed silk cocoons in their yarn, and I was excited to see what I could come up with, not really wanting to copy them exactly. I was looking for a way to put my own whimsical stamp in the idea. I hand painted the cocoons with silk dye, then cut and shaped them, nesting the halves to give them a little more personality. It was a blast, I need more cocoons, I have a lot of ideas for creating fun spin-ins with them. This cute little bunch of flowers is ready to spin into some special yarn!
Happy Spring! Blessings Friends!
