This is my first experience in skeletization of leaves, due to this it may not look perfect. I used the leaves of the Sacred Fig tree or it is also known as Bo-Tree. I have applied a number of different methods to do it, and spent quite a few months, but still could not rub off all the flash of the leaves properly. I was boiling them with washing soda for 2 hours, I tried to microwave them with soda and hard brew of green tea, and finally I just kept them outside soaked in that liquid. To my mind, there was one fact I had not taken into account I should have used fallen ugly looking leaves, but instead I was selecting the most good looking and fresh ones.

Here I am with a new article - a sleeping sack for a newborn. It turned out to be very sunny due to yellow color, and, as usual, I added something of my own to the description in the knitting magazine - the embroidery of a sleeping teddy bear :) Though it's not completely finished, still lining is not done, but I can't wait to boast!
