i recently completed 10 wall hangings made from cotton crochet thread for the ella moss windows in newport beach and san francisco. the longest wall hangings were 8 feet and we ended up using 12 miles of thread total! to create the “dip-dyed” effect, i lay them down on sheets of plastic and dabbed fabric dye onto the string, adding water to dilute it as i moved towards the top of the hanging. the yellow dye was mixed to match the color of daisy centers because daisies will be another element in the window.
i’ll post photos of the final installation soon!
