Reciclando o seu tricô

Desta vez, ao invés de repaginar uma blusa de lã eu resolvi ir mais a fundo e reciclar a própria lã de peças de tricô. Explico. Eu tinha dois cachecóis de tricô que estavam encostados no armário. A lã era muito bonita e de boa qualidade (um azul mais clarinho, de lã de carneiro mista e um azul escuro de lã mista com seda) mas eu já tinha enjoado deles e achei que podiam ter um novo destino.

Project: Kokedama String Garden. The first time I saw a kokedama string garden was right here, on Craftzine. Being a bonsai and ikebana enthusiast, I was captivated by yet another amazingly beautiful Japanese gardening method.

I’ve hung my kokedama outdoors, where it sways a bit in the breeze, and I couldn’t love it more. The steps are simple, with the most important aspect being the mixture of clay and soil. Try to achieve a blend of mud that clings together well.
