BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Wednesday, 27 June 2007

Putting together treasuries is an interesting challenge, doubly so with the recent treasury bugs.
Previously I did a treasury based on the children's book 'Good Night Moon' with the items as clues to the title of the book, I had fun, not sure if anyone else did LOL.
This treasury is a salute to the self sacrificing silkworm who makes our silk. I was truly amazed at the many, many uses for silk on Etsy. Recycled kimonos as binder covers and bags; silk ties as arm cuffs and dog leashes; scarves, clothing; knit into everything you can imagine; pillows, sheets; jewelery (I found a new favourite: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=6252986 ) and my own playsilks.
It such a lovely material to touch and work with, but also incredibly strong, versatile and durable.
Yay! for the lowly silkworm, worms of the world unite!
