chirimen baby

Little chirimen baby in bed.

Yesterday I saw a 'daruma' figure made of chirimen. Suddenly I remembered the silk cocoons I bought years ago... Surprisingly my first attempt turned out just the right size, the baby fit in perfectly. Unfortunately I usually cut right away and never document my work, so no measures taken... and I would so love to do some more!
