yarn and bags






I made handwork bags for the 2nd and 1st grade. here you can see the dyeing of the 2nd grade bags. I was shooting for orange but the red just took over. there are spots of orange on some of them :)
the rest is all yarn, yarn, yarn......my girls are pro yarn rollers. Nirnkaar is the most into it. her ability to hold attention on a project is amazing! SDK will do 4 skeins and get bored, NKK will do 6 skeins before she wants to go play outside......amazing!

and yes SDK is in the box of yarn while she sits and rolls her skeins.

I also started to make little skeins for the 1st grade. they will roll a treasure inside the ball of yarn so that when they are done, they will have a sweet shell to keep with their handwork.... its just all in good fun!
